Gary Meggs


Gary Meggs had a passion for music at an early age. By the time he was eleven, Gary had already learned to play the saxophone and the piano, and was always willing to sing or perform for those who would listen. Throughout his school years he continued performing at schools, teen centers and private parties. By the time he was 21 Gary had graduated from Henderson State University with a degree in music and was looking forward to becoming an accomplished professional musician. Gary’s aspirations of becoming a professional musician were put on hold however, when he was called into teaching and began a career as a performer/band director. His love for students set him on a path of preparing young people for a future in music while allowing him to continue his career as a performer.

Performing with well known musical groups and performers such as the Four Tops, the Temptations, Barbara Eden, Don Rickles, the Lennon Sisters, and Mickey Gilley gave Gary the opportunity to continue to pursue his dream of becoming a professional musician. This experience, along with being the featured saxophonist with the 106th Army Band, 531st Air Force Band, and many public school and college jazz bands has allowed Gary to build up a base of supporters that have grown to love and enjoy his musical talent. 

Gary is currently the saxophone instructor, director of bands and jazz band instructor at the University of Arkansas at Monticello. After many years of teaching, performing and recording Gary is still dedicated to instilling the love of music into his students. In his own life however, he has begun a new musical journey...a journey to live and play his music for God and share the good news message everywhere he plays or sings!
