The JDS (The James Douglas Show)

Albuquerque-based modern funk pioneers The James Douglas Show (The JDS) are considered the “bad boys” of this new musical movement. Hit performers such as Daft Punk, LMFAO, Bruno Mars and Bad Rabbits have incorporated synchronized band choreography, funk guitar, and vocoder-driven sounds of the 70’s....all of which have been staples of The James Douglas Show’s live performances for over a decade. Standing at the forefront of a resurgence of funk/soul music while, at the same time, infusing their own breed of high-energy pop, The James Douglas Show is in a class all its own…often imitated, but never duplicated.

The James Douglas Show has shared the stage with artists such as Keith Sweat, Carrie Underwood, Poison, Al B. Sure, K-Ci and JoJo, Keith Urban, Nickelback, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly. They are now touring the country in support of their current single, “Vegas Hot,” an ode to the city that inspired their high-energy party aura. “Vegas Hot” has been selected as the official anthem for’s marketing campaign, as well as “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” “Bad Girls Club,” & Best Ink. The video will debut November 7th on the SyFy Network reality show, “Skin.”

Rolling Stone magazine recently recognized The JDS as one the year’s “Bands to Watch.”

The JDS is the house band for the syndicated late-night television program, “The After After Party,” featuring Emmy Award winning actor and comedian Steven Michael Quezada from “Breaking Bad.” The show features some of the regions biggest celebrities as well as music and comedy from around the country. “The After After Party” will be available to over 50 million homes worldwide via DirecTV.
