The Cain Gang

The Cain Gang is a group of musicians who love playing and our performances reflect that enthusiasm. We play a mix of roots rock, blues, rhythm & blues and classic rock plus a sampling of other genres. Our goal is to have a repetoire that is as fun to listen to as it is to play.

The makeup of the band changes but has included the following musicians.
