Li'l Ronnie & the Grand Dukes are, to quote one reviewer "the real deal...superb talents well versed in traditional blues "Following on the footsteps of their critically acclaimed CD, 'Young & Evil' Ronnie and the band have really hit their stride with their third release, 'do what 'cha do'. The new disc features 11 original songs written or co-written by Ronnie and band mate Michael Dutton. 'do what 'cha do' is produced by their old friend and blues master Anson Funderburgh. It's their best work to date and having Anson in the producer's chair was a wise decision. Anson brought with him a wealth of experience and an understanding of what the band is all about. He certainly helped capture the band as close to 'live' as possible and that's the only way to fully appreciate this talented band of blues veterans. The band goes from primitive 1 chord blues romps, Chicago harmonica blues to West Coast jump blues and all parts in-between. They are led by veteran singer / songwriter and Hohner Harmonica endorsee Ronnie Keith Owens.

Ronnie has been performing since the early 60's and has been fronting his own bands for over 25 years. He has shared the stage & played with some of the biggest names in blues, John Lee Hooker, James Cotton, Taj Mahal, Carey Bell, Anson Funderburgh / Sam Meyers, Big Bill Morganfield and Many more. Sharing the band leading duties & adding his incendiary guitar work is Michael "Peewee" Dutton.

Hailing from the D.C. area, "Peewee" has been with Ronnie for over 6 years and has worked with some of the Mid-Atlantics best artists including the renowned Catfish Hodge & harp master Doug Jay. Laying down the bottom is bass man 'Texas'Tommy Hannigan. Tommy has played bass with some of the finest bands in both the Dallas & Austin areas. Tommy now lives in the D.C. area. Richmond, VA native and keyboard wiz, Steve Utt, is an in-demand player in the Mid-Atlantic area and has also been with the band for over 6 years. Rounding out the band is former Modern Drummer Magazine award winner, George Sheppard. George has worked-recorded with everyone from jazz icon Dizzy Gillespie to the rock group The Talking Heads. The Grand Dukes are world class by any standards.
