Paper Jams: Getting in the swing of Christmas with Garry Gentry and family

FEATURE — It’s the holiday season, so grab some hot cocoa and curl up by the fire for a special edition of the show that highlights local performers and live music in Southern Utah.

Owner Garry Gentry hosted the Canyon Media crew for a Christmas episode of “Paper Jams” at Gentry Music & Arts.

Playing alongside his favorite co-performer, his daughter Holly, Gentry performed a sampling of holiday classics including “Carol of the Bells.” The Gentrys also treated the crew to “Linus & Lucy,” from the beloved 1965 animated film”A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

Gentry Music & Arts is offering great deals this holiday season on instruments, sheet music, art supplies and more.

From keyboards to ukuleles and palettes to paintbrushes, a passion for creativity is soaked into the walls of Gentry Music & Arts. Gracing the main wall is an expansive mural that celebrates music and the performing and visual arts in Southern Utah. It was created by Carmen, Gentry’s wife and the co-owner of the business, and painted over the course of five months she helped run the shop.

After 35 years in business, the Gentrys have become a fixture among visual and performing artists in community, offering not only instruments but also works of art as well as piano lessons, art classes and facility rentals. Their goal is to reach out to people in the St. George area and bring happiness to their lives through art and music.
