The Gummy Sharks play 1965-1975 classic rock, soul and blues. Band members are Brent Bennett, Terry Snyder and Mardy Wilson, all relocated from Indiana. The band formed in Nokomis, FL, and the rest is history.

Brent Bennett has been working professionally as a musician for more than 25 years, performing his original music with bands in California and opening for such artists as John Waite and Echo & the Bunnymen. In Indiana, he played with the Roadapple band and Gypsy Runner in the early to mid-80s, performing at the Vogue in Broad Ripple on a few occasions as well as at Klipsch Music Center. In the 90s, he formed Stones Crossing with Rob York, playing lead guitar and fronting the band, and his involvement with Ballast resulted in the band's 2000 self-titled album, on which he wrote all the songs as well as providing lead vocals and guitar. He joined acclaimed roots-rock band Sindacato in 2004, contributing an original song to the band’s 2005 album, "The Cord." Later, he played with The Movers, American Stories Trio and Seldom Surreal before relocating to Florida and forming The Gummy Sharks with Terry Snyder.

Brent has released 10 CDs to date. His music is receiving international airplay on more than 100 stations worldwide, as well as college radio and internet television. Accolades include an Honorable Mention in the November/December 2008 lyric contest in American Songwriter magazine; Top 10 on OurStage.com in three different categories and being selected to work with Philip Morris USA in 2008 on a national promotion. "The Sign," from his first album, was selected as an alternate in the 2009 Blooming-Tunes songwriting contest.

Terry Snyder was born in El Paso, Texas, and played with Brent in Seldom Surreal before both moved from Franklin, Indiana, to Nokomis, Florida, where they formed The Gummy Sharks in 2015.

Mardy Wilson was The Gummy Sharks' original drummer and recently returned to the band.
