What do the late great BUTCH TRUCKS, BOB WEIR, LINDA PERRY and BILLY GIBBONS all have in common?
DISREPUTABLE FEW as their backing band!!
So who are the Disreputable Few? Four musicians who've come together to play the music they love – Psychedelic Blues Rock.
Bassist/songwriter/singer PAUL ILL lists playing bass with the Willie Dixon Family at Mr. Dixon’s Los Angeles wake and tracking live with Tina Turner in a London studio as definitive career highlights. He's toured nationally and internationally with Linda Perry, Courtney Love, Daniel Powter, Wayne Kramer (MC5), Juliette Lewis, Mick Taylor (Rolling Stones) and Bill Ward (Black Sabbath) to name a few. He's written songs with many high profile artists and his instrumental compositions grace numerous films and television shows. MARK TREMALGIA, Guitar player and Co-Lead Vocals for the Disreputable Few. Started playing guitar at age 6. Took lessons from Jim Shepley the same gentleman who Duane Allman had credited as being his teacher. The professional playing started in a band called Dox Haus Mob, who won a record deal on Dick Clarks battle of the bands! RANDY RAY MITCHELL, guitar & vocals, has played side by side with such notables as Matt Sorum, Daniel Lanois, Jackie DeShannon, Elvin Bishop, John Waits, and Keb Mo, to name just a few. He's performed and recorded with Warren Zevon, with whom he won a Grammy, as well as Donna Summer and Billy Bob Thornton. He brings not only his decades of professional music experience across a wide spectrum of genres, but the equivalent experience in music recording magic as well. Drummer, DAN POTRUCH, has been a working drummer in Los Angeles since 1986. He's worked with Jazz artists Tony Guerrero, Doug Webb, Brian Bromberg and Deron Johnson, of Miles Davis fame, as well as host of R&B and Blues artists including Guitar Shorty and Joe Houston and Kevin Moore - A.K.A.- Keb Mo. He’s performed on various film soundtracks including The Bachelorette and Anchorman II. Recently, Dan performed with Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry on The Tonight Show and continues to stay very busy in and around Los Angeles and abroad. Together they are the Disreputable Few!
This is our music, meant for everyone. We are DISREPUTABLE FEW. We are a band. And we have a dog. His name is Mr. Zeus. We are all so pleased to meet you!
