GREG DOUGLASS & THE SIDEWINDERS
After 7 years of burning through the club scene with his four-piece band, Greg decided, at the age of 71, that he wanted to play music that rocked harder and made audiences happily insane. He made personnel adjustments and formed GREG DOUGLASS & THE SIDEWINDERS, a jaw-dropping, sizzling select group of musicians playing rockabilly, surf, killer instrumentals, hard-rock classics, and...of course...a juicy selection of tunes from bands that Greg recorded and toured with: STEVE MILLER, VAN MORRISON, EDDIE MONEY, HOT TUNA, PAUL BUTTERFIELD and much more.
Once you've been bitten by the Sidewinders, there is no cure; you'll just have to come back for more strong, sweet venom!

New Fan Video: GREG DOUGLASS & THE SIDEWINDERS FIRST LIVE GIG!
"Greg Douglass & the Sidewinders had their first gig and the band is explosive. This is my fan video of "Oh Well" from the show. Greg is a brilliant talent and it doesn't matter if it is 1977 or 2021... his guitar playing can truly take your breath away! "

Special event with some of North County's best musicians....however, there's a new pairing of veterans who tore it up recently in an unlikely pairing of the spiritual and the sweet carnality of being human. Greg Douglass, guitarist for Steve Miller, and Dail Croome from Daring Greatly. It's worth coming by the show to experience the symbiosis of these two amazing musicians. Get tickets NOW; they'll be selling quickly.

Greg,, JD Pinckney, Jesus Guillermoprieto, & Hector Toro are back where they belong: rockin' the roof off Harry's!!! We love this place for the food, the energy, the whole package! We'll be paying tribute to the greatest guitarists of the last 50 years and...of course!...digging heavily into Greg's home base with a heaping helping of Steve Miller tunes. This is a do not miss show!
We played here a couple of months ago for the first time and it was love at first note...or was it love at first "F**K YEAH!!!!" from the dance floor? Either way, we love playing here. This place is raw, raucous, and fun as hell. The bartenders pour drinks with a strong and generous hand and the audience, as my pal Norton Buffalo used to say, "Gets down with the whales!" What does it mean? Who knows! It's a great bar, we love it,; the walls tell us to kick ass and this night is time to celebrate a little Halloween fun. Who knows; maybe Jamie Lee Curtis will stop by and dance to the "Halloween" them after Marilyn Manson sings "The Monster Mash". Hey, we can dream, right? Bitchin' food too!

"On the second day of Christmas my barkeep said to me; 'Would you like another Jack? Shall I make that a double?'" And so on until you call an Uber. The week before Christmas, rock around the Christmas tree with the coolest band in North County. I dare anyone else to rock harder and live through it! Greg was a member of Steve Miller's band for a few years at their commercial peak, he co-wrote "Jungle Love" and there's going to be a crapload of stuff from the Miller catalog, as well as lots of guitar-driven tunes from the last 50 years, honoring Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Sonny Landreth; and maybe a few holiday tunes, played like Santa took Rudolph's Adderall. Every player in this quartet is all killer, no thriller. You've got to make this the warm-up to your holiday fun!!!!
