The Jerry Cans

Our shoot with an amazing band from Iqaluit Canada

A recent media call out introduced me to The Jerry Cans, a unique and fun band from

Iqaluit, Nunavut Canada.

 

What started out as a brief interview soon became a 20 minute mini documentary featuring the band performing live and interviews with Andrew & Nancy.

 

 

Our Short film featuring concert footage & Intrviews

 

Below is our review of the band

 

The Jerry Cans Iqaluit Canada.
 
The old saying “You had to be there” is a term that defiantly fits the Jerry Cans.
Recorded music and video just doesn’t do this band justice.
 
Along with their unique music style, the band bring a fantastic sense of showmanship and downright fun to their live gigs.
Throw in some great folk music ,rock, traditional Inuktitut throat singing and a good old fashion hoedown and this what can be expected from the band.
 
Lead singer Andrew Morrison leads the band with great vocals & story telling.
Nancy Mike`s Throat singing has to be heard live to appreciate –her deep growling voice gives you goose bumps.
Violinist Gina Burgess is a brilliant musician, bringing some good old fashion fiddle playing to the mix.
The band is supported by a strong rhythm section –

Steve Rigby on drums and Brendan Doherty –Bass.
 
In a world where commercial rock and pop is shoved down our throats and the industry dictates what we should be listening to, The Jerry Cans are a shining example of a hard working band that stick to their roots.
 
Whatever your taste in music go along to one of their gigs, and have a ball – Their music is instantly addictive. 
 
A special commendation to Bryce from the Bean Project, who was called up on stage by Andrew for an impromptu jam session.
 
A huge thank you to the band and to Cat Swinton from Catalyst PR , Bohemian Rhapsody online Magazine for making this possible
