"When it comes to old-fashioned slide guitar, few of Tiger's contemporaries can sing the
blues quite like him."

"I greatly enjoy the style of slide playing that Tiger has
developed in his own way. Not only is he skilled in his
technique -- his truest strength is in his ability to summon imaginative and emotive phrases, spontaneously creating solos that are truly unique and gratifying."
Jerry Donahue, renowned guitarist for the Hellecasters, The Proclaimers, Fairport Convention, etc.
Wild Animal is slide guitar playing at its ferociously fun funnest. Wild Animal is Tiger Gagan's instrumental blues rock surf guitar trio. These songs spell fun for the audience because of electric guitars, usually a Telecaster, with homemade tube amps Tiger builds himself. That's tube amplifiers, old fashioned style. He gets a fine raw sound that's filled with excitement and fun. It's slide guitar, it's electric, it's animal it's ferocious, and it's fun.
