Welcome to the Blues Gorilla website.

I’m Gary Stark, also known (amongst other things) as the Blues Gorilla. I’m a presenter at Sydney’s 2RDJ-FM radio station, broadcasting from Burwood into Sydney’s inner west, where I host a Monday evening blues show.

I’m also a bass player, and I often wander down to the Bald Faced Stag in Leichhardt to join in the Wednesday night jam.

Within this blog I’ll be discussing various elements of the blues world, from artists, through gigs, music, and festivals. If I happen to find something that I think might be new, I will try to pass that information on to you through these pages.

I will also post my show’s playlists here.
