Dave Stuckey & Hot House Gang
Redwood Coast Music Festival 2018 Performing Artist
Multi-talented Dave Stuckey is a band leader, producer, singer, songwriter, drummer and swingin' guitarist extraordinaire.
Just look at his activities in less than 15 years. He helped the rebirth of the american hillbilly/rockabilly scene with the Dave & Deke Combo, produced the best album of The Hot Club Of Cowtown «Tall Tales» (and co-wrote with them the beautiful «When I Lost You» and «Sleep»), found time to drum with The Untamed Youth, released the best western-swing album of the last 50 years - «Get a load of this». You can find him today leading several of his own bands and drumming with The Lucky Stars.
At Redwood Coast Dave is bringing two of LA's hottest dance bands. First up: Dave Stuckey & The Hot House Gang
Dave Stuckey & The Hot House Gang is a hard-swinging, take-no-prisoners aggregation, playing standards and not-so-standards from the 1920's & 30s ...and whose main objective is to bring the heat, get you out of your seat, and provoke you to move your feet.
Bringing with him a Murderer’s Row of torrid trad jazz operators from the wilds of Los Angeles, Stuckey’s outfit channels an Eddie Condon small-group drive with jiving vocals that may conjure thoughts of Wingy Manone or Fats Waller. Calling all cats - that stuff is here and it's anything but mellow! Sound off with Dave Stuckey's Hot House Gang!
