Capturing the vibe of late 60’s and 70’s blues-laced rock-n-roll, Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania’s premier power blues-rock trio, Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen, mix retro-style and groove a-la (Jimi Hendrix Experience, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Led Zeppelin, The Black Crowes) for a lightning-charged vintage sound.
Guest Ed Randazzo has been nominated for Album of the Year & Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2016 Steamtown Music Awards, and was also winner of 2015 Steamtown Music Award for Blues/Rhythm & Blues Act of the Year.
Led by the transcendent lead guitarist/singer/songwriter Dustin Douglas (Lemongelli, The Badlees), The Electric Gentlemen (Tommy Smallcomb – drums and Matt “The Dane” Gabriel – bass) leave even the most discerning music fans with little left to ask for at the end of any live show.
Becoming one of the most sought-after live and session guitarists in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Dustin joined the legendary Pennsylvania rock band, the Badlees, with whom he helped record the album, “Epiphones and Empty Rooms.” The band later supported Bob Seger’s 2013 arena tour.
In 2014, Dustin Douglas released “Black Skies and Starlight,” his first solo record, to rave reviews. Self-proclaimed as “a mix of big guitars, with pop-laced hooks and an alternative attitude,” the album thrust Dustin back into the lead role.
The following year, Dustin was ready to get back to his blues-rock roots as the self-titled, debut record from Dustin Douglas & the Electric Gentlemen sold out of its first pressing.
