As one of the founding members of Streetheart, Daryl Gutheil has literally played every show with the band since it’s inception in 1977.
Daryl’s role in Streetheart was key in creating the original sound of the band. With his unique and skilled approach to keyboards, Daryl helped Streetheart to define itself musically and stand apart from many of the other other groups vying for label attention at that time.
Always a strong contributor to the musical direction of the band, Daryl was a writer/co-writer of many of the bands most popular songs. His unmatched ability to harmonize and follow Kenny’s lead vocal created another element that set the band apart in the beginning and that quality still remains as an integral part of the Streetheart signature sound today.
Daryl is a solid family man and recently the family celebrated the arrival of their 5th grandchild.
