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!

New Fan Video: GREG DOUGLASS & THE SIDEWINDERS FIRST LIVE GIG!

"Greg Douglass & the Sidewinders had their first gig and the band is explosive. This is my fan video of "Oh Well" from the show. Greg is a brilliant talent and it doesn't matter if it is 1977 or 2021... his guitar playing can truly take your breath away! "

*I happily regret to inform you that this event is 100% sold out!!!! It's going to be quite a show.** Special event with some of North County's best musicians....however, there's a new pairing of veterans who tore it up recently in an unlikely pairing of the spiritual and the sweet carnality of being human. Greg Douglass, guitarist for Steve Miller, and Dail Croome from Daring Greatly. It's worth coming by the show to experience the symbiosis of these two amazing musicians. Get tickets NOW; they'll be selling quickly.

Pretending Chrissie (Pretenders Tribute) and Greg Douglass; Opening Set on Acoustic

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

Wildwood Bar & Restaurant, 116 Civic Center Dr,, Vista, CA 92084

Wild Rose and Greg Douglass had a wonderful 7-year run as The Greg Douglass Band...that's a LONG time in the music business...and are now having a pleasant reunion at one of North County's nicest venues. Rose kills it as a visual and musical doppelganger for Chrissie Hynde, backed by a killer band. She's living the dream and so is Greg. Their parting was amicable and I'm glad to see us both happy. I'm also stoked to the gills to be sharing stage with her again. I'll be doing my fingerstyle acoustic set, including some Leo Kottke, a little John Fahey and doing what made me fall in love with the guitar many decades ago. (I also have two electric projects but...this is about my pal Rose and I.) I'll be putting down my acoustic but there MAY be a couple of surprises later on in the evening. My lips are sealed but...I'll let my fingers do the talking! See ya there, Rose, and if you liked us as a duo during those seven magic years...or like us for what we're doing now...it would be regrettable for you to miss this amazing show.

Advance tickets-$20; Tickets at the door $25

Greg Douglass and the Sidewinders-Back at Harry's!!!!!

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

Harry's Sports Bar & Grill, 125 S. Main Avenue, Fallbrook, CA 92028

Greg,, JD Pinckney, Jesus Guillermoprieto, & Hector Toro are back where they belong: rockin' the roof off Harry's!!! We love this place for the food, the energy, the whole package! We'll be paying tribute to the greatest guitarists of the last 50 years and...of course!...digging heavily into Greg's home base with a heaping helping of Steve Miller tunes. This is a do not miss show!

Greg Douglass...he who has played with some of the best artists in the world, including Steve Miller, Greg Kihn, Eddie Money, Paul Butterfield, Hot Tuna, the Electric Flag; has now settled down with three of the greatest players in California; long-time pal Hector Toro on drums & vocals; vocalist/rhythm guitarist Jesus Guillermoprieto and the astonishing bass stylings (solid body electric and stand-up bass) of J.D. Pinckney, J.D. also builds all his own instruments. It's a jaw-dropping combination of the greatest rock'n'roll music from the past fifty years, including music from Greg's guitar heroes like Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Sonny Landreth, Mike Bloomfield, plus his multi-million selling hit single "Jungle Love" by Steve Miller. It's fifty years of recording and touring with the best players in the world and Greg has finally found a band great enough to play it all astonishingly well. If you've listened to classic rock radio during the last few decades, you've heard Greg play (remember that cool guitar solo on Greg Kihn's "Jeopardy"?) and now you get to hear him joyously rip through music he's been dying to play for years. He just had to find the right guys to play it perfectly. Greg just returned from England and now he's ready to give fans of great music a real treat.

We played here a couple of months ago for the first time and it was love at first note...or was it love at first "F**K YEAH!!!!" from the dance floor? Either way, we love playing here. This place is raw, raucous, and fun as hell. The bartenders pour drinks with a strong and generous hand and the audience, as my pal Norton Buffalo used to say, "Gets down with the whales!" What does it mean? Who knows! It's a great bar, we love it,; the walls tell us to kick ass and this night is time to celebrate a little Halloween fun. Who knows; maybe Jamie Lee Curtis will stop by and dance to the "Halloween" them after Marilyn Manson sings "The Monster Mash". Hey, we can dream, right? Bitchin' food too!
