Doctor Doug and the Dirty Shoes Band

Blues and roots music from all eras

Playing songs from all eras, a performance by Doctor Doug and the Dirty Shoes Band takes the listener on a journey through the history of roots-based blues, rock, jazz, and pop. The band particularly enjoys creating renditions of songs that might not be considered piano blues types of works. One might hear a variation on a song by their favorite classic rock band or a blues version of a country tune, not just the standard blues songs that might be expected. Of course, their song list contains lots of those, too. There's plenty of variety, often something familiar and sometimes something new, and even several songs of their own thrown in for good measure. Doug has a particular affinity for the music of The Band and Little Feat, so those artists are well represented in the band's repertory. Still, everything the band does bears the Dirty Shoes Band stamp, a style all their own.
