Dirty Slang & Innuendo
With vocals ranging from paint peeling screams to soulful blues, Zeke Martino commands the microphone. Carlos is by his side wailing on the sax and Ace McNeely makes his guitar sing, providing signature melodies Big Ward Richmond and Rob 'The Heart-throb' Shumacher, both from the Dallas Observer award winning Slick 57, combine their bass thumping and drum booming sounds that can only be described as the second coming of John Bohnam. The Doubledowns have created a sound that is both unique and intense. With their 2005 debut album Dirty Slang and Innuendo released by Dallas label Crow Records, The Doubledowns are ready to unleash a new take on rhythm and blues to the world. With the help of such special guests such as: Matt Hillyer (1100 Springs, Lone Star Trio), Jim Leynard (Johnny Reno and the Lounge Kings), Wendell Lipscomb (Twin Jewels), The Fabulous Harmonaires and Denton blues legend Pops Carter, Dirty Slang and Innuendo is sure to attract some attention.
