The Suitcase Junket United States
Located in Amherst MA, Matt Lorenz is a Maker of Many Things, including but not limited to music, wine, and public art. The Suitcase Junket is the name of this Rusty Belle member’s side project. Featuring a suitcase bass drum with washboard underfoot, a hi-hat and an old gas can rigged up to a foot pedal and a beat-up junker guitar saved from the trash, Lorenz’s instruments are the product of crafty, heartfelt salvaging. This is fitting for music that expresses the emotion of one who has been repeatedly tossed and saved.
