You may remember him as the leader of the All-Star Frogs (1970-1983) and the Power Trio (1983-present), doing humorous and raunchy blues originals such as “Tie You Up!” and “More Love, More Money.” Or you may remember the Tumatoe tours of local clubs and endless spins of his songs on college radio in the ’70s and ’80s. Dr. Duke was a member of REO Speedwagon. He left in 1969, evidently taking all rocking bluesy rootsy-ness with him. He grew up on the South Side of Chicago, a blues-loving youth who hung with the legends. Now he’s still at it, playing over 200 shows a year, covering over 60,000 miles. Tumatoe promises “A good time, a little mischief, a lot of great music.”
