One of the finest classically trained jazz pianists you'll hear anywhere, Gary Schunk amazes audiences wherever he appears. At his arsenal of keyboards, Schunk fuses his passionate energy with his seasoned technical prowess. Based primarily in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, Schunk has earned much acclaim as both an acoustic pianist and as electronic keyboardist for his own electric jazz trio Schunk-Starr-Dryden, for which he composes and arranges using synthesizers and electronic instruments.

When the name jazz stars come to town, Schunk is a man in demand: he has played with numerous jazz greats, including Joe Williams, Earl Klugh, Sonny Stitt, Kenny Burrell, Anita O'Day, Mark Murphy, Pepper Adams, Terumasa Hino, Dave Valentin, David "Fathead" Newman...and many others.

In November of 1995, Schunk was chosen as one of ten winners in JAZZIZ magazine's "Keyboards on Fire" contest, which celebrated original piano jazz compositions from unsigned pianists. Schunk's electrifying compositions, Backward Glance, is featured on the JAZZIZ compilation CD, and is also one of four original pieces appearing on Schunk's independently produced debut CD, The Key Player.
