Terry Dean will be out of action for some time while he recovers from surgery. I'll see if I can get some friends to fill in here and there - might call it 'Gary Carruthers and various others'. I'll let you know how it shapes up. All speediness to Terry.


Terry Dean and Gary Carruthers have been playing live music together for over 25 years!

They basically set the standard for what you can do with two voices, two guitars and loads of great songs.

Their pub residencies during the 80s and 90s have become legendary throughout Melbourne, particularly the packed-out New Boundary Hotel which ran every Saturday night from 1985-1994.

Preferring spontaneity to a set list, D&C still sound fresh today even after thousands of pub gigs, weddings, parties, TV appearances and all kinds of functions.

Audiences also get to hear a variety of the finest quality musical instruments including acoustic, electric and lap steel guitars, mandolin, banjo, dobro and harmonica, mostly thanks to terrydeansguitars.com.au.

These skills also keep the pair in demand for recording sessions and live instrumental/vocal backing for many touring artists such as Kasey Chambers; Troy Cassar-Daly; Graeme Connors; Kevin Bennett and The Flood... at some of this country's biggest music festivals such as Port Fairy; Byron Bay; Tamworth and Gympie.
