Opener: Dylan Doyle Band
Seventeen year old Guitar Slinger, Dylan Doyle, has been steeped in everything from Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, and Buddy Guy to Bob Dylan, Todd Snider and Jimi Hendrix and touring nationally since age fifteen. His unique musical interpretation lies somewhere between the delta of Rock, the Blues, and Funk. Dylan has performed at the Grateful Garcia Gathering, one of the largest Grateful Dead festivals in the country and returns to play the 2015 King Biscuit Blues festival. He is looking forward to his first European tour in 2015.
After performing with Dylan in Memphis, sole surviving band member of the Otis Redding plane crash Ben Cauley said, “Dylan Doyle is like a young, white Jimi Hendrix.”
“Dylan Doyle is the best young musician I have heard in a long time.” - Chris O’Leary “Dylan Doyle can play with me anytime, anywhere.” - Blues Icon, Joe Louis Walker
