Dean & Carruthers

Dean & Carruthers

Terry Dean and Gary Carruthers have been playing live music together for over 35 years! They basically set the standard for what you can do with two voices, two guitars and loads of great songs.

Their trick has always been to sound uncannily like a full band without using backing tracks and such – even experts have been fooled. This organic quality has helped to form deep connections with a large and loyal following over many years.

Preferring spontaneity to a set list, these guys keep it fresh even after thousands of pub gigs.
Their pub residencies during the 80s and 90s have become legendary throughout Melbourne, particularly the packed-out New Boundary Hotel which ran every Saturday night from 1985-1994.
