Gary Good

Chow Chat

By Carol Smaglinski December 20th, 2012

For Gary Good of Guthrie, life is good. A former bandleader, Good owns Gary Good Entertainment & Speakers Bureau. An avid reader and careful with his health, Good is a producer and operates an events center out of his home.

Catch a show: “Concerts are presented at my place in Guthrie, The Magnolia Moon, formerly The Guthrie Amphitheater that turned into a home about 10 years ago. The project is called Guthrie Retreat, which includes The Magnolia Moon, The Magnolia Manor and Suite Bettie Jean (Bed & Breakfast).”

A nice happening recently: “Oklahoma opera singer Leona Mitchell came to sing at The Magnolia Moon.”

A famous person you look like: “My dad, Al Good, who was also a bandleader.”

Take a foreign exchange student to show-off Oklahoma: “Certainly to the Cowboy Hall of Fame and to my business, which I call The Guthrie Retreat, that I bought five years ago.”

Fun time at the B&B: “There are rooms where 10 to 12 people can stay with family reunions. Hey, people come for group meetings and women come for a girls' getaway.”

Family: “Daughters Margo and Andrea.”

Reboot each day: “I meditate, stretch, read in the mornings and do yoga. I like to run and play golf.”

Song that describes you: Secret of Life by James Taylor.”

Where would you like to go incognito: “The White House, a movie set or to the Academy Awards.”

Your “pinch-me” moment: “I went to a songwriter’s event with Paul Williams and saw several famous songwriters there. Another time on New Year’s Eve of 1999, I produced a Natalie Cole show in Scottsdale and at the party, I stood next to Tiger Woods.”

You love: “Salmon and I cook a mean salad.”

Never eat: “Brains.”

Favorite dining spots: “Gage’s in Guthrie, The Metro, Khazana and Thai Delight in Edmond.”

Nobody knows: “I am a closet comedian.”

Die and come back as: “Myself. And I try this all again.”
