- Greg Krueger is originally from Ann Arbor, Michigan where he was part of the emerging folk and blues scene in the early 1970's. He spent a decade playing guitar in R&B bands around Detroit before moving to LA and rediscovering his acoustic roots, adding mandolin and dobro to his soulful guitar work. The consummate sideman, he has produced and appeared on the CD's of many of the best songwriters you have never heard of.
Herbie "Doctor Fun" Katz
Sadly, Herbie Katz passed away April 2013. He and his harp playing will be missed... we love you Doc!
I am keeping Herbie on the website as a tribute to his contribution to the Wumbloozo sound .... and because I can.
