Formerly known as CATEGORY THREE, The GARY SCHUTT BAND is the same classic lineup known for about four years, the same (and new) eclectic array of high energy cover, just undergone a re-branding to showcase Gary's songwriting too.  

Frontman, Gary Schutt’s vision of a versatile high energy entertaining cover band is finally here! Gary, formerly the guitar player for the hugely successful Disco Inferno and later an original member of The Untouchables, steps out from the sidelines of his previous bands and is ready to show the world what he really is made of. Gary and the band will grab your attention as soon as you walk in the venue door.

Storm proof your windows, lock your doors, put the kids to bed and put the car in the garage. Then call a cab and go see CATEGORY THREE perform at your favorite local venue! Wait the storm out, have a few drinks, dance and rock the night away! You will have a great time! (Go home in the morning and call your insurance company!)

Gary is joined by two top notch veteran talents, Tracy Ferrell on bass and Brian Higgins on drums. Together, these three professional musicians have many years of experience entertaining crowds.
