Doug Barrett & the Deal Breakers is a SF peninsula-based blues/rock power trio comprised of 4 long-time friends who've played together in various incarnations since high school. Their kinship is evident in the way their music grooves and gels together. Their repertoire ranges from classic Delta & Chicago blues standards (SRV, the 3 Kings, Taj Mahal) to blues-based, classic-rock gems (ZZ-top, Allman Bros., Hendrix, Cream). Doug Barrett serves up the blazing yet tasty guitar solos on guitar. Justin Wooster keeps things gritty & soulful, pulling double-duty on drums and lead vocals. Paul Sassenberg holds the bottom end down in the pocket on bass. Vince Arellano brings the party as the visual focal point of the band on percussion, vocals and improvised acrobatics.
