Gary (a.k.a. G-Man) and Kosaku (a.k.a. Ko) formed The G-Man Power Duo five years ago. They have blended their instrumentation and diverse musical styles to forge a unique sound that includes originals that Gary has written and their arrangements and interpretations of cover material.

"G-Man" has been performing for over thirty years .His eclectic writing and performing style is an amalgum of several musical influences:,Classic Southern and Country Rock,Contemporary Blues Funk,RB,Soul,Cool and Brazilian Jazz. Besides his Vocals and Harmonica, Gary uses Guitar and Guitar Synthesizer (Roland GR-1) in performance. His finger-style
technique, pianistic approach and simultaneous mix of guitar and custom synth patches-strings,organ,horns, etc.- add to his unique sound. During performance,everything is real-time. Gary is an endorsee for Hohner Harmonicas, Heritage Guitars and Shaker Microphones.

Kosaku Nakamura (a.k.a. KO) has been playing guitar for over 20 years. His main musical influences are Rock, Metal and Blues. He has created
a unique style and sound with his 7-String Guitars, edgy lead playing, rhythm and bass comping and adept use of the E-Bow effect. He is also an accomplished audio engineer. His engineering credits include "Liquid Tension Experiment 1 & 2" and "Rudess/Morgenstein Project" and several other projects which made some artists famous. He records for himself and his clients at his Yes I Know Studio.
Why this name?
