The Eric Ducoff Band @  |  |

“The Eric Ducoff Band consists of 3/4 of the nationally-acclaimedRyan Hartt & the Blue Hearts.I couldn’t think of two better guys to play with than fellow Blue Hearts Nick Toscano and Jeff Berg, so it was an easy choice to take them along for the ride as I set out to do my own trio.

For the last 9+ years I have been playing in the CT-based band,Ryan Hartt & the Blue Hearts.The band plays a mixture of Chicago and West Coast jump blues from the late 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. I couldn’t be more proud of the time I’ve spent with bandmates as we have busted our butts to keep blues music alive throughout New England.

We have also been fortunate enough to record two fantastic CDs(“Empty Wallet” – 2003; “Yeah Man!” – 2005).On both of these sessions, we were lucky enough to get the chance to record with two of our favorite musicians in the world:Rick HolmstromandJunior Watson.What a thrill to work with these two guys.

I’ve also had the pleasure to do dates withJerry PortnoyandSugar Ray and the Bluetones.
