Doug Deming Dennis Gruenling Event

Eastside Detroit native DOUG DEMING, now hailing from Florida’s Gulf Coast, has garnered widespread attention for his deft guitar work and memorable songwriting. With a nod to the likes of T-Bone Walker and Charlie Christian, as well as Luther Tucker and Robert Jr. Lockwood, Doug leaves his own mark whether swingin’ on the big jazz box, or playing straight up blues on the solid body Fender guitar.

DENNIS GRUENLING On the road, Doug teams up with long time road partner, award winning harp man and VizzTone label mate, Dennis Gruenling. From Dennis’ site: “Dennis has pulled in countless fans and numerous accolades from critics & musicians around the world for his swinging, highly original harmonica sound and style. Taking equal parts from the harmonica and swing/saxophone traditions and styles, Dennis has pushed the boundaries further for the sound of blues, while in the meantime pioneering a whole new sound and direction for the harmonica.”
