Mar Caribe
Mar Caribe
Mar Caribe is an all-instrumental band from Chicago that performs originals that blend spaghetti-western, surf, and country as well as a wide range of covers. Begun as a duo in 2006 by two friends who loved the Ventures, Dick Dale, and Leo Kottke, the group has since grown to a seven-piece lineup featuring three horns, banjo, and pedal steel. Tom McGettrick (banjo, pedal steel) leads the group. "My approach to writing these songs," says McGettrick, "is I try to make a really fun, dancy, catchy surf-rock-ish tune, but instead of just being a 1-4-5 or a 1-6-5 progression, it goes all over the place harmonically without hitting you over the head with it. Then I pile on the horns.
