Gary Cain Band

Posted by Shane Macaulay on 2017/06/14

Gary Cain is one of the most exciting guitar-slingers on the blues scene today. As a child he spent entire days in his parents’ basement learning AC/DC songs note-for-note on a cheap classical guitar. “Eventually I think they thought ‘It’s time to get him into lessons.’ I still laugh when I think back to me as a 12-year old kid trying to explain to my Mom the intricacies of Angus Young’s solo on the live version of Whole Lotta Rosie.”

After studying guitar at Humber College’s world-renowned music program, he played in several bands, eventually landing a gig in Dubai in the house band for The Lodge, one of Dubai’s largest nightclubs. The four-sets-a-night, six-nights-a-week pace eventually led to a vocal injury that sidelined him. “I wasn’t sure what to do, no seemed to be able to tell me what the problem was. When I finally got into see a specialist that could tell me, it was a relief to know it was something I could come back from.” Now, back in action with a style he calls Twang-a-Delic Blues-o-Phunk, he’s backed by a rhythm section featuring two incredibly well-rounded, experienced, and talented musicians. “It’s great to be able to play with guys that can draw from so many styles. It gives us a lot of freedom to stretch out of the typical blues box and into a lot of cool different places.”
