The group's name hints at conflicting elements in its membership and ethos. Betraying the jazz/blues heritage of many of the participants, Gitbox is a Pidgin expression for the steel-string acoustic guitar.
In order to defy the bounds of rock convention, Gitbox members worked to acquire a full array of musical weapons - many of the techniques more often associated with classical or jazz music, and sometimes devices more regional: Latin or African.
While this can result in an eclecticism in the range of performance material offered, there is nonetheless a consistency in approach - something which can now be identified as specifically Gitbox.
