Gino Vincenetti

I was fortunate to make Gino’s acquaintance in the mid-80s and we worked together in the studio as well as the Clutch Cargo band.

Gino Vincenetti

Gino Vincenetti, aka Lee Sherseth, extraordinary guitarist, singer/songwriter, and former roommate & bandmate

Gino played guitar, slide guitar, drums, and harp (harmonica) and also sang and he did all of it GREAT.  In fact, to this day I have to say he’s the best blues guitarist I’ve ever worked with and I can only imagine how good he’s gotten by now.  Gino didn’t have a job when we first met and it was at a time when the music market was in contraction, so he found himself doing weird stuff like playing gigs at the laundromat.  I did a couple of gigs with him on drums under the name “Thud Wexler” which I found to be utterly hilarious, especially when one bartender replied “Pleased to meet you, Thud”, after being introduced to me by Gino.

Of course Gino Vincenetti wasn’t Gino’s real name, either.  His real name is Lee Sherseth, and he had a whole schtick worked out about his brothers from another band, who were named Vince Vincenetti and of course Eddie Vincenetti.    Gino and I also did quite a bit of recording together and I always enjoyed playing with him.  He did everything great the first time and it always felt like a zero pressure gig, just a couple of buds having some fun with a 4 track.

I’ll put up some of the tunes we recorded together, and I honestly don’t remember who played what.  If it’s a slide guitar, that’s Gino.  If it’s drums, it could be either of us.  If it’s a live bass, ditto.  If it’s keys or fiddle or TR707 drums I did it.  This was the era of the Juno-106 in my studio and I really liked the synth.

The star of this show is Gino. I hope to hear from him again, soon.
