Gary Moon is an American rock bassist best known performing with Three Dog Night (1988–9) and Night Ranger (1991–96). HitMen AllStars (2011–15), and the SnakS (2014–2015).

Moon graduated from high school in Fairborn, Ohio. He got his start in the local music scene there, playing in bands such as The Demons.

Before joining Night Ranger, he played for a band called 'The Pack with Steve Isham of Autograph. Matt Sorum, later of Guns N' Roses, The Cult and Velvet Revolver was also a member of the band. Curly Smith of Jo Jo Gunne and Boston and Pete Comita of Cheap Trick formed the rhythm section.

Moon's solo album Still Moon consists of the original demos from the band The Pack. The band was close to signing with Atlantic Records many times in the late 80's and 90's. They recorded an album that was never finished, and the material remained unreleased until the tracks surfaced on Still Moon. Before releasing the album, Moon finished and remastered all of the tracks.

Moon has also toured with members of major label bands and with the band Moonsparks, that includes DC Sparks and Scot Moon (Gary's brother).
