New Orleans Drummer Doug Belote | Banjo Studio Podcast Episode 22

August 09, 2023

Raised in Lafayette, Louisiana but based in New Orleans, Doug Belote is one of the most in demand drummers on the scene today. He has played or recorded with too many musicians to name but some of these include Jerry Douglas, Derrick Trucks, Dr. John, John Oates, Robben Ford, Charlie Hunter, Anders Osborne, Ryan Cavanaugh, and many more (including yours truly). Doug can play anything, from the most avant garde jazz to a rock solid train beat. 

Take a listen to Doug's musical story, some of his concept about locking in a groove but playing in the cracks, as well as one of the most hillarious stories about how he got hired to be Jerry Douglas' (the dobro player) drummer and how he thought he was trying out for the Jerry Reed gig!
