Sam Doores

Friday, March 20

Perhaps best known for his work with the New Orleans band The Deslondes, Sam Doores has just released his self-titled solo debut album.

Saturday, March 21

Listen for selections from Dogman, the 1994 effort from King’s X as well as songs from Circle of Dolls, the 2019 effort from KXM, featuring King’s X bassist/vocalist Doug Pinnick, former Dokken guitarist George Lynch and Korn drummer Ray Luzier.
