Gary Van Miert is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and sole songwriter for “The Sensational Country Blues Wonders!” He formed the band in 2012, and cobbled together the combo’s name from the names of different groups in his extensive collection of Gospel 45’s. Gary has always been interested in that point where Blues, Country and Gospel music intersect. His vision was to have a band with it’s own unique interpretation of traditional American music – classic Country tunes from the fifties and sixties, time-honored Blues numbers that go back to the greats hailing from Mississippi and Chicago, and especially the gritty Gospel sounds from the deep South. “The Sensational Country Blues Wonders!” have performed extensively throughout the New York/New Jersey area. Gary’s influences include many seminal figures in Gospel music, such as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Brother Joe May, The Dixie Hummingbirds, Brother Claude Ely, The Swanee Quintet, The Famous Davis Sisters, Reverend Charlie Jackson, and a host of others.
