The band "Gary and The Rough Ideas" was formed back in 2011 by Gary Baumgartner and Brad Sales primarily to record and promote an album of original songs.  Brad and Gary have been friends since the 1990's when they played together in Brad's band "The Nighthawks".   A longtime Haliburton resident born in Toronto, Gary is a classically trained pianist who switched to rock n roll, with thousands of hours of experience in the music industry, recording, producing, performing, and touring.  He is the lead vocalist and keyboard player for the band.

Brad, another longtime Haliburtonian originally from Toronto, has logged over 40 years on the electric guitar with a variety of Toronto based bands.  Brad provides solid harmony vocals, rich guitar work and tasty solos for the Rough Ideas.

Andy, from Haliburton Ontario, has spirit and enthusiasm for both music and cars.  Anchoring the rhythm section, not only is he adept on bass guitar, he can also play the horn.

Jimmie "Three Stix" Stewart on drums, from Newmarket Ontario completes the lineup with his humour and solid backbeat.  He has used up more drumsticks than a flock of turkeys.
The band has an extensive repertoire of original, Rock, Blues and Pop music.  Best of all, there is a special synergy between the four members that you can feel. Yes, it's true, they just "LOVE TO PARTY" !!
