doug curle blues band / Bio

Doug Curle

Although his name is synonymous with blues along the Florida and Alabama coasts……….

Doug Curle~guitar/vocals was born and raised in the Mississippi Delta. He grew up on black-eyed peas, cornbread and blues 45’s, (race records), and whose love and knowledge of the blues is deep and abiding.

His earliest memory is of his father, W. W. Curle, whistling and singing Blues at Midnight. “my mama done told me…”

His love of the blues was re-instilled in the sixties with such groups as the Stones, Yardbirds and original Fleetwood Mac with Peter Green, (not the later sissy, chick version).

He has played in such diverse bands as The Blue Dots, The Bonetones, The Mighty Mudsharks. He has shared the stage with the late great Johnny Shines, a friend and protégé of Robert Johnson, “Mighty” Sam McClain, Kim Simmons (of Savoy Brown fame), Jimmy and Jack Hall and a hundred pickup bands along the way.

Doug’s influences range from BB, Freddie and Albert King to ZZ Top, Peter Green and Keith Richards and Carlos Santana. Curle’s smooth yet riveting delivery propels the band through tune after tune.

Bass/Vocals

Roger Agerton cut his teeth with the Alabama funk band Front Page and with the rock band The Scoundrels. He brings an “in the pocket bottom” that is unique and very cool….

Drums/Vocals

George Neidorf grew musically in the 50’s and 60’s playing in his native Los Angeles and in the Tenderloin District of S.F.

He played with “Johnny and Shuggie Otis“, Big Joe Turner, “Eddie ‘Cleanhead’ Vinson” and “Don ‘Sugarcane’ Harris. He toured in England, Europe, Australia, the Far East and the Gulf Coast.

The Doug Curle Blues Band plays a blend of powerhouse blues/rock with crowd pleasing traditional Chicago, Texas and Mississippi Delta Blues.
Don’t think of the blues as slow, cry in your beer music. Blues music is up-tempo, foot tapping, head bobbing, jitter-bugging cool stuff! Everyone loves the blues whether they know it or not. It is authentic American Music.
