The Pernell Reichert Band is a three piece band from Vancouver, BC, Canada, featuring Pernell on acoustic guitar, electric guitar, harmonica, banjo, and vocals; Ross Fairbairn on bass and background vocals; and Tom Tischer on drums and background vocals. Their music has been described as razor sharp folk, alt country, or cow punk. The band's live act showcases fast folky songs, foot stomping banjo songs, solo acoustic songs, and roots/rock songs.

Pernell Reichert is a singer/songwriter, and fast finger picker. His songs reflect his experiences on the road of life and the highways of the world. As a solo artist, Pernell’s style of guitar playing has been described as high energy, with fast finger picking numbers that keep the listener intrigued. When performing with the band, the tempo is upbeat with a full thick sound that keeps the toes tapping and the crowd dancing.

In 2004, after several years as a tree planter, hobo, oil rig worker, and solo artist, Pernell founded the band. The following year, they set out on their debut month-long tour of western Canada, toting only Pernell’s solo albums, yet playing new songs written specifically for the three-piece ensemble. In 2007 they embarked on several five-day tours, slowly breaking into the Canadian touring circuit.

Their albums include Pernell Reichert and the Hard Drinkers, release in 2008; Highway of Tears, released in 201; and The Road (You Ain't the One), released 2016.
