The Wang Dang Doodle

The Wang Dang Doodle live at Elme Hall on Sunday May 21st
They made such an impression in 2016 we just had to have them back.

The music of the "WANG DANG DOODLE BAND" confidentially "THE WDD" is based on R&B, blues but they easily go on heavily on rock and jazz. The elements usually taking a blues standard and bringing a rock sound and style to it.

The band is based on three killer sections: the traditional rock roots come from Kosmas guitar, the jazz syncopate rhythm from Francesco's drum, and the fabulous flying harp of Laurent that with his energy and character is the glue of this musical engine by throwing his heart and his soul into his singing, from which approach the power of the blues is said to come...... This is The sound of the band a synthesis of different traditions in an explosive cocktail to drink without breath, perfect for blowing away the cobwebs and kicking off the weekend with a bang!

The Wang Dang Doodle came about in the early part of 2014, making their live debut in June 2014 at the Grey Horse, Kingston.

Laurent Mouflier on harp and vocals (played with the likes of The Pretty Things, Ronnie Wood, Mick Taylor) and Ben Heartland on bass (James Taylor Quartet, Dennis Greaves, Sir Joe Quarterman) were soon to be joined by Francesco Cuturi from Napoli on the drums, bringing influences from the great jazz drummers like Buddy Rich.

After a short spell as stand-in bass player, Kosmas Mylon from Greece joined on the guitar, influenced by the rockier sound of bands such as The Allman Brothers, Led Zeppelin and Peter Green. Playing with a Gibson SG and Marshall amp, Kosmas brings a big sound to the WDD.

Influenced by the blues greats such as Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf the band set upon playing the blues across the London scene. Soon, the WDD started to work on their own materials. Influenced by much heavier, rockier and sometimes punkier sounds, songs such as City of Night, Let the Loose End Drag, Boogie Fling and Easy Strut were written.  We are the Wang Dang Doodle.
