Beginner swing lesson with Sue and Gary 8:30-9pm, dance 9pm-12midnight, $15
Eastside Detroit native Doug Deming, now hailing from Florida’s Gulf Coast, has garnered widespread attention for his deft guitar work and memorable songwriting. With a nod to the likes of T-Bone Walker and Charlie Christian, as well as Luther Tucker and Robert Jr. Lockwood, Doug leaves his own mark whether swingin’ on the big jazz box, or playing straight up blues on the solid body Fender guitar. He's joined by Dennis Gruenling on harp, Madison Slim, Andrew Gohman and Devin Neel. We are lucky to catch Doug Deming and the Jewel Tones featuring Dennis Gruenling on tour and are thrilled to welcome them to Gottaswing.
