February 18, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - February 19, 2022 @ 2:00 am£5
The Wang Dang Doodle are an established blues rock band based in the heart of London featuring 4 exceptionally talented and well seasoned musicians. The band has played and toured extensively for nearly a decade and is known for its highly energetic shows combined with great musicianship and skill. Together they capture the true essence of what a live band should be – Energy, Adrenaline, and Entertainment.
The current lineup are frontman Laurent Mouflier (Vocals/Harp), Francesco Cuturi (Drums), Simon Pires (Bass) and Kosmas Mylon (Guitar). These four musicians are not just band members, they form a tight friendship which contributes towards the band’s synergy and feel. This is seen and heard regularly in their live concert performances where they have collaborated with luminaries including Mick Taylor, Ronnie Wood, The Pretty Things and Nine Below Zero to name but a few.
The band were recently awarded the “Best Band in London” during a battle of the bands contest by the Hard Rock Cafe – something they point to with certain satisfaction.
Influenced by the greats of the past and present, The Wang Dang Doodle is set upon playing the blues and rock across the UK and Europe and are always hard at work refining their performances and structures. The band are also prolific songwriters, constantly creating their own music. Their original compositions ‘Djakia’, ‘Easy Strut’ and ‘City of night’ reached high critical acclaim.
“Delivered with energy and passion, Ray Drury’s fingers were a blur on the piano as band frontman Laurent Mouflier’s lips flew over the harmonica.
Their thumping cover of ‘Don’t Bite The Hand That Feeds You’ being my stand out track of the evening. The audience were up and dancing for the
whole set and the band seemed to be having as much fun on stage”
“Unpretentious, lively and we were grinning from start to finish – a great gig!”
