2014 West Coast Tour Wed, 14 May 2014 21:32:44 +0000 10175057_10202523873790861_3923546343616688149_nWe had a blast on our recent west coast tour, making new friends and fans, and reconnecting with old. Our show at the Rhythm Room in Phoenix was off the chain, with special guest appearances by Bob Corritore and Kim Wilson, who played a full set with the band. We had great turn-outs in Long Beach, Santa Cruz and San Jose, and a killer show at The Sporty in Elk Grove, with none other than Little Charlie Baty and Rick Estrin jumping in for an outrageous set. With stops along the way in Mississippi, Texas and Georgia, it was an excellent tour, and we all look forward to heading west again soon!

Harpin’ for Kid Benefit Wed, 12 Feb 2014 18:34:59 +0000 1781310_10202184666550892_1183853186_nOn Feb. 9th, 2014, a stellar line-up of blues harp players came together to support legendary guitar man Kid Ramos in his continued fight against cancer. Doug Deming & The Jewel Tones had the great privilege and honor of being the backing band for an incredible line-up of blues harp elite for this superb event.


The Harpin’ for Kid benefit was the brainchild of Bob Avon, NJ businessman and dear friend to Kid Ramos. Bob, together with the meticulous engineering of Dennis Gruenling, organized a top shelf event that brought harmonica giants Kim Wilson, Rod Piazza and Steve Guyger, along with Dennis himself, together on one stage for an epic harp blow-out.


But the true highlights of the night were seeing and hearing Kid Ramos back on stage, tearing up the six string like he’d never even heard of cancer. Kid was absolutely on fire all night, playing with the individual artists, then joining the all-star line-up, along with Honey Piazza, for a sensational finale.


Andrew, Devin and I want to wish Kid Ramos and his wife Linda continued good health and happiness. -Doug

What a Summer! Wed, 04 Sep 2013 17:42:49 +0000 553440_574039965986280_329764509_n

Finally home from our extended summer tours! We played 73 nights on the road this summer in just about every state east of the Mississippi River! (and a few to the west!) We’d like to thank everyone that helped make this possible and everyone who came out to the shows to support us! Personally I’d like to thank my musical comrades- the road warriors who everyday had to get in the van and grind it out – and then somehow manage to hide the fatigue and put on an energetic, entertaining show night after night after night.
Thanks Dennis Gruenling, Andrew Gohman and Devin Neel. You guys made this summer a great success – and got me looking forward to the next one!

Burnin’ thru August Mon, 19 Aug 2013 14:48:53 +0000 862152_10201001811500255_927747319_n

We’re half-way thru the summer’s 2nd month-long tour and having a ball! Last week we had a two-night stand at Rum Boogie in Memphis- always a great time! We were thrilled to open up for Asleep at the Wheel at Knuckleheads Saloon in KC, then on to a great night at Uncle Bo’s in Topeka. We’re burnin’ up the road and meeting tons of great folks! We’re excited to hit at the Zoo Bar tonight, followed by a live call-in show on Music on the Couch. Big week ahead with stops in Chicago and the 2nd Annual Harmonica Summit in Grand Rapids, MI. We’ll really be cookin’ by the time we play back-to-back festivals this weekend: headlining the Bean Blossom Blues Fest on Friday night, then the Byron Crossroads Blues Fest on Sat. night. The whole band wants to thank everyone for coming out to the shows and supporting the blues!
