Formed in musical meat grinder that is Peterborough’s Hunter Street, Tarantuela is a band that knows what it means to work hard.

Tarantuela draw on country, blues, and folk to create a distinct rock n’ roll sound, made instantly recognizable by the bluesy howl of front-man Jay Swinnerton. The band’s songs run the gamut from vocal driven ballads to riff-based rockers, filled with infectious hooks and fiery licks that stay with you for days. Bellowing horns and honky-tonk piano are also featured on a number of tracks.

As Tarantuela take to the stage, what strikes you immediately is how tight they are as a band.
