Things really get cookin’ as Bradenton’s premier rockabilly blues hounds Doug Deming and the Jewel Tones proceed to get the crowd jumping, jiving and wailing. Backed by Andrew Gohman on upright bass and Devin Neel on drums, Deming summons the spirit of blues legends like T-Bone Walker and Charlie Christian. The Detroit native honed his style over years backing up greats such as Louisiana swamp bluesman Lazy Lester, Chicago’s Johnny “Yard Dog” Jones and A.C. Reed, and Detroit’s own Queen of the Blues, Alberta Adams. The band’s latest album “What’s it Gonna Take” spent two months on Living Blue Radio’s Top Ten Chart after being released through the Vizztone Label in October 2012.

Everyone wants a “home” band. You know, the kind whose songs you know all the words to, and they’re about what you’re going through, where you grew up, and when you walk into the club they’re up on stage giving you the wink or the wave, because you’re part of the Kettle of Fish family. You’ve been with them from the start, back in 2001 when you spent every Wednesday at Siesta Key Oyster Bar and you’ve been following them ever since.
Their sound was exactly in your groove…some heavy blues combined with high energy Southern Rock n’ Roll. Like putting on your favorite pair of jeans that’s a bit worn in but nothing feels as good as that Kettle of Fish groove. The band writes a lot of their own music, and isn’t that part of the beauty? We can all play other writer’s music but the process with Kettle of Fish starts with a lyric, and spin its way through the other band members, some adding, and some subtracting, till you get that crazy-good final product.
Dana Lawrence is on guitar and vocals and contributes heavily to writing for the Kettle. Lead guitarist and vocalist is Thorson Moore, drummer is Garrett Dawson, Todd Cook plays Bass and does vocals also. Then there’s Matthew Frost on keyboards. In addition there’s Gavin Michael, guest drummer, Jimmie Fadden, guest drummer from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Greg Poulos, guitarist extraordinaire from the Venturas. They recorded their debut EP at Matt Frost Studio in Venice, Fl, and Spirit Ranch, Sarasota.
The glue that holds this group together through thick and thin, good times and bad, and just those kind of days you wish you could go back to bed and start all over…well, there’s no one person. Dana said it all when he said, “The co-op called the Kettle is a family, no matter what!”
