Doug Duffey, New Orleans soul man

If you remember Enoch's Pub when it was on Creswell St, you probably remember piano-playing singer Doug Duffey, a performer long based in New Orleans.

Duffey wrote to say this week "I'll be playing the Mudbugmadness Fest with the band on May 26 at 11 AM. We'll be doing a mix of my original songs and some Louisiana standards for a funky rockin' good Louisiana time." He added that he called Jerry Beach to join his band for the gig and that "it should be a melee, all in all."

Duffey is a blue-eyed soul singer with a gospel-based piano vamp. He's a raconteur. Better than just being witty, his greatest strength is knowing how to make butts rock.

Band lineup:
Doug Duffey- vocals/piano
Tommy Miller- guitar/vocals
Jerry Beach- guitar/vocals
Doug Johnson- bass/vocals
John Brown, Sr.- drums
Mark Smith- percussion

Enjoy pics of his travels and listen to Doug at his site. I once called him a "synthesis of Louisiana music." Mais, but, oui.
