Swingin Double Bill brought to you by the Central Iowa Blues Society

The Bel Airs and Doug Demoing & the Jewel Tones

Fronted by brothers Dick and Dave Pruitt on bass and electric guitars, 
with Michael Cherry on drums, The Bel Airs play a danceable mix with an 
authentic but eclectic bluesy-country-soul-and-rock-n-roll sound 
influenced by the likes of Wilson Picket, Slim Harpo, Howlin' Wolf and 
Johnny Cash.

Performing together for more than 20 years, the Pruitt brothers' harmony 
vocal style sets them apart in the contemporary music scene--leading one 
reviewer to refer to them as the "Everly Brothers of Blues". David's 
"big guitar" and Dick's howling vocals over soulful, right-on rhythm 
playing make this trio a powerhouse.

Doug Deming is an American blues and roots guitarist/vocalist, born and 
raised in the Detroit area, currently residing on the Gulf coast of 
Florida. Doug is the 2013 recipient of the Blues Blast Music Awards' 
Sean Costello Rising Star Award. Drawing influence from greats like 
T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian and Robert Jr. Lockwood.
