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, Jefferson Starship, Blue Oyster Cult, The Ramones, Eddie Money, Grand Funk Railroad, 3 Dog Night, 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.
The Doug Wahlberg Band’s music has traveled national and international air waves and been widely received in the college radio circuit. Members of The Doug Wahlberg Band have performed from coast to coast, as well as internationally, with concentrated club performances in New York City at hot spots like the Bitter End, The Cutting Room, and CBGBs, as well as East Coast venues like Foxwoods Casino, the Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun, and The Ridgefield Playhouse. They even bent the blues rules playing their own brand of rock and roll at the Montreal Festiblues blues festival.
