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! "

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!

The Pompatus of Love, featuring original band member Greg Douglass on guitar (co-writer of "jungle Love"), will be blazing through the stellar catalog of Miller hits at the best place to play in San Diego, the Belly Up Tavern. The new line up, featuring Greg's long-time friend and drummer/vocalist Hector Toro, vocalist/guitarist Jesus Guillermoprieto, and our secret weapon, bassist J.D. Pinckney, has a chemistry that has left audiences screaming for more at every show they've done. Headlining the show is Desperado, one of the top Eagles tribute bands. It's going to be a great show; put it on your calendar now!

An exquisite place to bathe your senses in quiet but soul-warming music. Greg Douglass, a guitarist usually known for his history with the genres of blues and rock, will open the show exhibiting his lifelong love for acoustic guitar. His set will be followed by the jaw-dropping six-string skills of the great Fred Benedetti. Closing the show will be the duo Story and Tune. To quote from their website; "You be the muse and we’ll bring the melody." Intrigued? Me too! I actually get paid to work with this level of artistic excellence. Doors open at 7:00, Greg goes on at 7:30....and that's no April Fool's prank.

Get there early to witness the collective decades of experience of the veterans and stay to behold the future of great music. No dance routines for these boys!
