Want to know why Greg started playing guitar? Pickers: are you dying to know the guitar secrets behind Greg's hit, "Jungle Love"? Check out this enlightening & entertaining interview!
GREG DOUGLASS & THE SIDEWINDERS
After 7 years of burning through the club scene with his four-piece band, Greg decided, at the age of 71, that he wanted to play music that rocked harder and made audiences happily insane. He made personnel adjustments and formed GREG DOUGLASS & THE SIDEWINDERS, a jaw-dropping, sizzling select group of musicians playing rockabilly, surf, killer instrumentals, hard-rock classics, and...of course...a juicy selection of tunes from bands that Greg recorded and toured with: STEVE MILLER, VAN MORRISON, EDDIE MONEY, HOT TUNA, PAUL BUTTERFIELD and much more.
Once you've been bitten by the Sidewinders, there is no cure; you'll just have to come back for more strong, sweet venom!

RINGER'S! Yes, all caps because this is a new venue for us.. People drink (responsibly, of course), people scream, people dance, and, from what we hear, they PACK this marvelous venue..Missy, the manager and caretaker of this great piece of funkdom,, saw us recently and said, "This is the perfect place for you guys!!!" I believe her absolutely.. The drinks are poured with a strong and steady hand, the dancing is wonderfully crazy, and the band; ahhhh, the band of my dreams. We are fronted by Jesus Guillermoprieto, our vocalist deluxe; kicking my ass from the backfield we have my long-time friend & musical partner, Hector Toro on drums and vocals and the phenomenal gift to the bass, the one, the only, JD Pinckney. I formed the band as a tribute to my favorite guitarists: Jeff Beck, Dick Dale, Peter Green, slide whiz Sonny Landreth, Eric Clapton, players with endless amounts of heart and soul. Come early stay late (come on, 10 PM? You can do it!) See you there. Oh, two final words: Tip Jar. Bring cash. We deserve it. See you then!
