China Grove  a tribute to  
Band Bio

China Grove is a top-shelf Doobie Brothers tribute band from the Tampa Bay area, who’s repertoire spans the many decades and styles of the legendary California group. From the jammin’ rock of “Long Train Runnin” to the jazzy “Takin’ it to the Streets”, and the bluesy “Dark Eyed Cajun Woman” to the Grammy award winning pop of “What a Fool Believes”, this group blazes through a sizzling set of memory-jarring classic hits and album cuts with stunning accuracy and passion. Let’s just say these guys “bring it”!

Led by vocalist/ guitarist J Todd Plant, who fronted a band featuring Doobie Brothers alumni Chet McCracken, the late Cornelius Bumpus and the late Dave Shogren, doing the hits of the Doobies all across America. He’s also worked with members of Chicago, Steely Dan, Kansas, Blue Oyster Cult, Firefall, Marshall Tucker Band, Tom Petty Band, Rick Derringer, and was the voice of Hulk Hogan’s fight song “American Made”.

Bassist/vocalist Hiram Hazley toured with the late-great Buddy Miles (Hendrix, Santana), jazz greats Kenny Drew Jr. & Manfredo Fest, and 19 years at Tampa’s Busch Gardens.
Drummer/vocalist Michael Comparetto has performed and/or recorded with BB King, Toby Keith, Pat Travers, Rick Derringer, & members of Firefall, the Outlaws, Molly Hatchett, Savoy Brown, and was a session drummer at Miami’s Criterion Studios.

Rounding out the lineup is Chicago Blues scene guitarist Dave Mueller, who is the long-time “Carlos” for Santana tribute band Supernatural (also featuring Plant), and stellar Hammond B3, Nord C2D and Korg Triton player Rick Curran who also works with several Tampa Bay area blues bands.

So lock up the liquor cabinet and tie down the storm door ‘cause China Grove is headed to your town!
