All artists are a direct product of their influences. Such is the
case with guitarist, singer, songwriter Robbie Ducey.
Growing up in the same hometown as the Godfather of Soul, it was only
natural that Ducey was exposed to some of the heavyweights of the rhythm
and blues and soul music scene of the 60's such as
Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield, Albert
King, and of course James Brown. The 'British Invasion' of the late
60's and early 70's brought more influences such as
Robin Trower, and
Jeff Beck, all of which can be heard in
Robbie's guitar style.
It is rare when an artist can infuse the elements of Rock, Soul, Funk,
and Blues into their song writing and playing style, and create a truly
unique sound of their own. Robbie has managed to do this while staying
true to his roots, but always pushing the envelope. His guitar playing
style is old school-in your face 70's bluesy rock with a sprinkling of
soul and funk. His sound and tone are every guitar players dream.
His vocal style is soulful, gritty, sensual, and direct, all of which
draw the listener in to the song and lyric content.
With Mark Wright on Bass Guitar and vocals, and Jim 'the mind' Bender on
drums, the band is rockin' hard as ever. Currently touring in support of
their latest release "Judgment Day", this band keeps the dream alive,
and delivers on what counts the most--great music and great performance.
