The Carolina Players consists of: Ken Dukes on guitar, harmonica, and vocals, Scott McFarlane on keyboards, John Mock on bass, Doug Blomstrom on drums, and Charlie Exley on sax. Our band members have performed extensively throughout the US, as well as Canada, and the Caribbean Islands. Ken Dukes has had the honor of performing alongside artists like Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, as well as John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band. After a decade of extensive touring, he had the pleasure of playing regular studio sessions at many NY & NJ recording studios alongside artists like Glen Burtnik, formerly of Styx, and Paul Crook of Meatloaf. Re-emerging as live performers after being inspired by three amazing Charlotte, NC blues bands, the members noted above have been selectively called together to re-live the passion for performing live music that had been on temporary hiatus.
