Eric Ducoff Band

About

The Eric Ducoff Band is an unapologetic rock n’ roll trio based out of lower New England. Their sound is all about big songs, and big guitar, with a salute to the rock and blues heroes that inspire roots-based music lovers to crank the volume knob.

Muddy Waters famously said, “the blues had a baby, and they named it rock ‘n roll.” The same could be said for The Eric Ducoff Band. The group was formed in 2007 by Eric Ducoff (guitar/vocals), Jeff Berg (bass) and Nick Toscano (drums) as an outlet for their intimate knowledge and love for traditional blues. But their sound didn’t stop there…

“While the blues brought us together, we all had a deep love for rock ‘n roll,” says Ducoff. “The transition from a traditional blues band to a straight-up rock ‘n roll band happened about as organically as possible. We just followed the muse, and before we knew it we were a COMPLETELY different band. If that same musical path worked for guys like the Stones, Cream, Jack White and The Black Keys, who were we not to follow it, as well?”

In December of 2018, the band released their first full-length album, Closure, a self-produced collection of 10 original tracks. The album can be found on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Tidal and all other major streaming services.

    Caught these guys last night (9-11-15) at The Stomping Ground in Putnam,Ct. As a musician myself, and a huge fan of The Band, I am usually disappointed when somebody tries to cover them. Not the case here. Their rendition of “Ophelia” was great-especially for three piece and sans horns! Look forward to seeing them again soon…

    Saw Eric at the griswold inn in Essex Ct. on 4-19-19, Incredible band. Best version of “Folsom Prison Blues” I ever heard. Plus Eric himself and the band were all very personable to meet during the breaks. As a guitar player myself, I truly enjoyed all their music. Picked up a copy of their album “closure” and listened to it all the way home back to Massachusetts. Think of their sound as Clapton, Jimmy Page (when he’s bluesy), Stevie Ray Vaughn, B.B. King and J. Geils etc all rolled into one, with the end result being greater than the sum of the parts! Phenomenal! And the bass player did a fine job too when Eric let him take over on his Telecaster for a while! Well worth seeing them, they’ll be there next Friday too, and hope to be there again too!

Have your say
