John Resch & Doggin’ Out
Live at Harley Corin's
Based out of the Iowa/Illinois Quad Cities, John Resch and Doggin’ Out is a swing/jump blues quartet led by vocalist/bassist, John Resch.
Resch has reunited with Shane Johnson’s Blue Train and John Resch and the Detroit Blues drummer, Tony Carton. After leaving Detroit Blues, Tony had a long stint on the road with California based singer/songwriter, E. C. Scott.
Resch and Carton have teamed up with Guitarist/vocalist Jeff Sime, and Harmonica player/vocalist Chris Ryan. Ryan, who recently returned to the Quad Cities after living and playing music in Kansas City for the past nine years, was with the Avey Brothers band when they won the Iowa Blues Challenge. Jeff Sime led the popular Quad Cities band Spike for a number of years.
Both Chris and Jeff bring a fresh new take on Resch and Carton’s blues style with their swing/jump blues influences. These influences have pushed Doggin’ Out into the music stylings of Little Charlie and the Nightcats, Rod Piazza and the Mighty Flyers, Mike “Hollywood Fats”, Big Joe Turner, Amos Milburn, and T-Bone Walker.
This new direction has prompted Resch to pursue his lifelong ambition of playing the upright bass, further helping to define the new unit’s sound. Coupled with Carton’s “take no prisoners” drumming, and Jeff and Chris’ super tasty licks, this new project is bringing a brand new sound to the area’s music scene.
