Duch jo

Duch jo started out in early 2016, it was at an afterparty of a local gig when Duncan and Chris met and started chatting about their few mutual influences and the possibility of putting together an originals band.

After only a matter of days a drummer was found and the first jam session was arranged.

It was clear from the early stages that this was going to be a very unique sound as Duncan’s song writing,  inspired by Prince, Bob Marley and Led Zeppelin, was fresh and didn’t follow any trends.

An added flavour of Zappa, Steve Vai and Hendrix influenced guitars gave the songs another twist.

As duch jo is only a three piece, additional equipment was needed to create the full experience as it was intended , this includes bass synth for added brass and keyboard sounds, a Drum SPD for intros, triggers, sound samples and various guitar effects to give a signature sound. You will have to go and check out a full live show for yourself to understand the workflow, you’d be forgiven to think that there’s a full horn section and a keyboard player present.

Ashley joined duch jo in late 2017, an amazing drummer who immediately contributed by adding a new groove, vibe and feel to the sound.

Duch jo have played the local circuit for about a year now, appeared on regional radio and had an amazing response and feedback from anybody who had the chance to catch them perform. In 2018 they are looking forward to bring original live music to a venue near you (including a mini tour in Devon later this year)

If you like your funky chick peas, a bit of soul flavoured mashed potato and add a sprinkling of rock chilli beans served in a completely unique and original bowl.... go and check them out!
