Wilkes-Barre power blues-rock trio Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen will perform its acclaimed “SRV Retrospective” at 9:30 p.m. May 12 at the River Street Jazz Cafe in Plains Township.
The band, which consists of guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Dustin Douglas, bassist Matt “The Dane” Gabriel and drummer Tommy Smallcomb, has released two records of original music in 2015’s eponymous LP and 2017’s “Blues I” EP.
And along with reaching audiences on the club, theater and festival circuits with their original music, the Gentleman have earned a reputation for accurate and passionate tributes to the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, which they’ve offered in houses as historic as New York City’s BB King’s and Wilkes-Barre’s F.M. Kirby Center.
Tickets for the “SRV Retrospective” cost $10 in advance and $15 the day of the show and are available online at bit.ly/2Kd35ZO.
