The Gunslinging Birds


The Gunslinging Birds, at its core, is a guitar centric Classic Rock cover band with a predilection towards the great Southern Rock and Blues Rock of the 60s and 70s. While the band in its current form has only been together since winter of 2012, the individual members had been playing music together in various projects for decades. In fact, the band’s greatest assets are the dual lead guitarists, Ian Marine and Vincent Lopez, who literally grew up playing music together in Valencia County. They are the seamless, double barreled, riffing machine that drives the heart of the band’s authentic sound. Added to this is the solid foundation of the rhythm section consisting of Aaron Woods on rhythm guitar, Luke DeGuatt on bass guitar and Harold Montoya on drums (Harold and Luke have over 50 years combined experience playing music and performing throughout the Southwest), and the resulting music is a genuinely fun experience for both the band and its audience.
