Gary's Gang was a funk/soul/R&B/disco group who just missed having a U.S. Top 40 hit, when their lone Billboard Hot 100 entry, "Keep on Dancin'", reached #41 in 1978. The song climbed to #8 in the UK Singles Chart,[1 ] #14 on the Hot Soul Singles chart in 1978. and also made #1 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart, as did two of the group's other songs: "Do It At the Disco" and "Let's Lovedance Tonight". The latter was later used as the sampling background track to Soulsearcher's 1999 #20 Club Play hit, "Can't Get Enough".

In the 1980s Gary's Gang also enjoyed further U.S. and European success with the 1982 single "Knock Me Out" (#45 UK) and the 1983 hit "Makin' Music", which reached #8 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart.

The group, based in Queens, New York, consisted of Gary Turnier, Eric Matthew, Al Lauricella, Rino Minetti, Bill Catalano, Bob Forman and Jay Leon
