Garnet was born in Detroit, MI and at a young age you would find him listening to Ted Nugent’s first band the Amboy Dukes who would rehearse just down the street from where he grew up. He was inspired and wanted to be like Ted so he begged his Mom to help him get his first Gibson and he was on his way.
The family moved to Defiance, OH when Garnet was a freshman in high school. He played with some local musicians and finally landed in a band from Ayersville, OH called The Other Half. Garnet was one of the driving forces in the band from 1969 – 2000. The Other Half toured as a horn band with Garnet on lead guitar from 1971 – 1974. The band regrouped in 1976 and cut the “Smut” album in 1979 which achieved national success. Garnet and Smirth won numerous awards for Smut and The Punk Polka which was used in TV syndication. They also got a lot of FM airplay which peaked the interest of some music business people in Los Angeles. So Garnet and The Other Half moved to L.A. in 1985.
They played every venue. The Whiskey, Roxy, Madame Wongs, The FM Station etc. Performed for all the record companies but it just didn’t pan out. So some of the members returned to Ohio and Garnet stayed on with the rest of the band where he became the lead singer of a heavy rock version of The Other Half. During this time Garnet also spends 11 years in production work alongside some of the top R&R sound engineers in the world. He also trained in corporate video, lighting edit and design.
In 1996 Garnet and Jim Horetski with 2 former members of Crazy Horse start an Eagles clone band. Garnet covers the Joe Walsh stuff and the piano work in this project. The band to this day is still one of the top Eagle attractions in the country. Garnet leaves The Long Run in the year 2000 and comes back home to Defiance, OH.
He joins up with local favorite Wally and the Beavs as the bass player. He plays for 2 years with them and then joins forces with Pete Schlegel and the Trusouth Band as the bass player, band director and production coordinator. In this project Garnet was able to put most of his talents to use. In 2004 he directed and co-edited the hit video “It Takes A Whole Lotta Liquor To Like Her”. The video played in the top ten on GAC, CMT and VH1 Country for 3-6 months. He then tours as the band director and bass player for Daryle Singletary, Jeff Carson and Pete Schlegel from 2006 – 2009 touring fairs and venues throughout the U.S.
Garnet leaves the band in 2009 and spends the next 3 years recording regional Rap artists at his private studio.
Garnet has now joined up with the Trans Siberian Orchestra Tribute band “Siberian Solstice” for the 2015 season and is looking forward to performing as a lead guitar player and lead singer for the group.
Garnet starts a solo/duo act in January 2017 playing all the hits people want to hear.
