DENNIS GRUENLING – After receiving his first harmonica as a gift from a family friend while in his teens, he had heard his first blues record and his life was never the same! Having been in New Orleans during 1992-3, Dennis came back home to the Garden State of NJ and quickly gained a reputation as a young rising star on the local blues scene working in a couple different local blues bands.In 1998 he started to form his own local “all-star” band, using members pulled from other regional bands, and since his self-titled debut with that band (“Dennis Gruenling & Jump Time!“) in 1999, 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 blues harmonica and swing saxophone traditions and styles, Dennis has pushed the boundaries further for blues harmonica, while in the meantime pioneering a whole new sound and direction for the instrument.

“Dennis Gruenling has become the new harp player’s harp player…one of the most critically acclaimed of his generation”JUKE JOINT SOUL

“Dennis Gruenling is a leading light among a new generation of harp players…stands poised to claim a spot in the pantheon of blues harmonica greats.”BLUES REVUE

“His command of technique and sense of the groove are ideally suited…”JAZZ & BLUES REPORT

“Gruenling is a spectacular harmonica player, easily one of the best recording today…”BLUES BYTES

“He matches (Little) Walter’s brilliance…”BIG ROAD BLUES

“Dennis Gruenling proves he’s a force to be reckoned with both as a harmonica superpower, and as a jump blues musician.”PETER KRAMPERT

Loading Quotes...

DOUG DEMING - Doug, and his band The Jewel Tones, have been in demand as a backing band for a literal “who’s who” list of some of the top blues acts touring for the past 20 years. This list includes Kim Wilson, Lazy Lester, Greg “Fingers” Taylor, Alberta Adams, A.C. Reed, Gary Primich, Louisiana Red, Chicago Pete, Johnny “Yard Dog” Jones, Johnnie Bassett, and more. As a guitarist and vocalist, Doug acknowledges a musical debt to T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian (among other Texas guitar men), as well as more contemporary players like Jimmie Vaughan. Whether it’s some swinging’ west coast jump blues, low-down Chicago shuffles, or rockin’ swamp blues, Doug Deming’s got the chops to deliver – and then some!

“Doug Deming is a multi-faceted musician with talents that extend beyond his instrumental prowess…” – CROSSROADS BLUES

“Completely restored my faith in the genre…” - MUZIKREVIEWS

“Doug is equally at home playing straight ahead on the solid body guitar, or swinging on the big jazz box.”GEORGE SEEDORFF
