The Guitar Cases band create their own brew of laidback outlaw country and folk influenced blues.
Don’t just expect to hear hypnotic riffs, blues-tinged licks, solos, and strong rhythms because The Guitar Cases can bloody well write songs.
The guys are regular performers at some of the best music bars in Canberra and are one of Canberra’s hardest working bands. If they don’t have a gig on you’ll often find them busking at Canberra’s Old Bus Depot markets where peeps hear them for the first time and follow them to the next venue that same day.
They are also regular performers on the South Coast and further afield.
Most of The Guitar Cases’ music is original with the occasional cover of one of their heroes: Johnny Cash; Muddy Waters; Howlin Wolf; Robert Johnson; Steve Earle; Elmore James; Waylon Jennings; and Paul Kelly.
Andy Daniels’ vocal delivery is impressive, being intimate and sweet one moment, to raw and powerful the next. Andrew Tatnell plays sweet melodies on his sublime Fender guitar. The multi-talented Ang Perusco plays blues harmonica, guitar and vocal harmonies. The master percussionist Red Herbert (formerly of Segression) keeps the outfit cookin’. They are occasionally joined by the folkin’ mad, Rick Saur, on bodhran.
