Meet the Band

Dane Gamble

Patti Steel

Nick Clark

Ed Cheek

All four members come from completely different places: Joplin, MO, Kansas City, MO Springdale, AR and Little Rock, AR; and because of this, we all bring completely different flavors to the table. The Trashcan Bandits has heavy influences in Delta Blues, all sorts of Jazz, and even Punk and Metal. The truth is, they have a fascination with anything original, no matter the genre. So, what you get is a wide array of attitudes within our music. They've got think acoustic guitar and growling grumbly vocals, subwoofy bass and thunderous jazz drums. Did I mention the CLARINET? Patti riffs and rocks the clarinet, mandolin, and spoons.

They start out with a punch to the jowl with an up tempo heart pounding nautical themed juggernaut, and then they take you on a stroll down the French Quarter on a hot afternoon. They have a western wind blown gunslinger that will make you raise your fist up to the sky to strike the lightning. They also can bluegrass it a bit if ya like or even sing you an Irish dirge. Shoot, Dane will tell you a dark fairy tale, Tim Burton approved. They'll drink and jig with ya, or they'll sing campfire songs too.
