The Doug Wahlberg Band has been electrifying audiences for years, performing originals most cannot distinguish from mainstream radio play. Their music features simple melodic hooks that are simultaneously gritty and laid back while hypnotic and driving. These tunes will etch their way into your memory. While reminiscent of British and American classic rock, The Doug Wahlberg Band brings a modern approach to a retro sound.
Band members have resumes that boast performances with the unparalleled talents of The Doors, Neal Smith of Alice Cooper Band, Jose Feliciano, and Ian Hunter. The band recently played with Eric Burdon and the Animals to a crowd of 15,000, as well as opening for Grand Funk Railroad. Theyve also opened for classic acts such as Paul Simon, Foreigner, George Thorogood, Blue Oyster Cult, The Ramones, Eddie Money, Rick Derringer, and Cheap Trick. Doug has worked on projects that included such legends as Rick Derringer, Elton John’s lyricist Bernie Taupin and Bowie’s guitarist and producer Mick Ronson. He has been managed by Lester Chambers of the Chambers Brothers and has even performed at a birthday party for which the guest of honor was Andy Warhol.
