W3Detour are a tight outfit with a wealth of music experience and bring back the essence of the Beat Group Era from the mid-late 60's with original material written by Danno Sheehan. Songs such as Shallowness, Back to You and Why Not dynamically capture the era. Beat/Blues covers from that era enhance the band's core sound. With a Vinyl album the band are receiving radio play across all the media platforms. The "Passing Time" album is one not to be missed. A great group to play at your Festival or large venue.
From Danno's deep roots in the days of the Beat Group era in mid-late 60's in Cork,with the likes of Rory Gallagher, Danno regularly played support to well- known artists such as Rory/Garry Moore and the Miami Show Band, all this well before the word blues was introduced by the likes of John Mayhall.
This followed an exciting stint in Glasgow with the Band: Canvist (2001-2004) who went on to play Dundee, Colne and Tarbert festivals amongst others.
Danno finally settled in London in 2010 where W3detour is the current reincarnation and where the band has an excellent fan base.
The key to a successful band is the Rhythm and this is ably provided by Daniel Linhart whose feel for rock/blues is second to none. Daniel is a very skilled guitarist focusing on rhythm and subtle duel lead providing the foundations of the band and vocally adds a flavor of Velvet Underground into the mix.
In the meantime, in London, Drummer Terry McInenery was working with bands such as Mixed Bag, traveling to Hamburg's TOP TEN where the Beatles played. In the 70's Terry played with Blyth Spirit and later with Limited Edition with Louis Cennamo bass player with the Herd and Renaissance. Keeping the beat for the Swing Hi 7 piece Jazz Band.
Terry has been a pro drummer since the summer of 69. Now fulltime with W3Detour.
