Up Close & Personal with Alan K. Stout

Dustin Drevitch is the guitarist, vocalist and principal songwriter with the band Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen. The group will release its second self-titled album on May 27. A CD release party will be held that evening at the River Street Jazz Café. Drevitch, 29, is a native of Wilkes-Barre and is a graduate of Coughlin High School. He also received a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from King’s College. He has also recorded and performed with his former group, Lemongelli, as well as with The Badlees. He lives in Wilkes-Barre.
Meet Dustin Drevitch …

You’re only 29 years old, but if you count your work with Dustin Douglas & The Electric Gentlemen, Lemongelli and The Badlees, your new album is your sixth CD. And with this one, you also served as producer. Can you discuss what kind of different approach, if any, you took with the new record?
The last record was very song-oriented. I wanted to get back to just jamming with a band again; nice and loose. Getting back to a three-piece, it’s kind of like the energy that Lemongelli had. I stopped fighting the obvious. This is how I like to play guitar. I like filling the space to make it sound as big as possible. The last record was definitely a two guitar player record, and this is what I feel is my most honest work — honest in the fact that I’m just doing what I feel. I’m not forcing anything at all.

It’s sounds like an old-school bombastic power-trio. Would you say that’s fair?
Yeah. Most definitely. I just feel super comfortable playing this kind of music. In a way, it’s kind of a continuation of Lemongelli. I’m having a blast. We all are.

Clearly, your greatest influence as a musician is rock and blues.
Most definitely. But I’m influenced by everything, not just those two genres. I love a good pop song, or an instrumental from the ’40s or ’50s. As far as inspiration, it’s all the greats. We just lost Prince, and he was a really huge inspiration. Some people say they can see it. I don’t. But he was an amazing guitar player. He was just smooth. It was a hell of a loss. You can definitely hear Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page in the things that I do, and there are also a lot of cool new bands. Jack White, Rival Sons, Gary Clark Jr. … there’s still a lot of great music out there, it’s just not on the surface. You just have to scratch a little deeper.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
There’s not really too much of that, but when there is, I go to a concert or something. My life, most of the time, for me and my girlfriend, is music. I recently said, “I’ve got to get another hobby.” I really do. I do like to play basketball and ride my skateboard. I still take a skateboard to gigs. You’ll find me out back, skating, in boots. I love skating. It’s really relaxing to me. I’ll skateboard until I’m 60.

Are you a collector? Have you ever had any hobbies?
I do own quite a few guitars. It’s close to 30. But what the hell else am I going to do? A carpenter needs his tools. (Laughs) And I do have a pretty cool library of books. I’d like to have a really nice, huge library some day. I’ve also been starting to buy a lot of vinyl, and I also have an excessive clothes-buying problem.

You’re pretty into fashion, aren’t you?
The fashion world is something I’m very interested in and that I keep up on. I’d love to have my own clothing line some day. I love fashion. Old hats, good boots, a great second-hand find … it’s definitely something I appreciate.

Do you follow sports?
Dallas Cowboys. And baseball, during the playoffs. It’s a long season.

First car?
A white 1989 Pontiac Sunbird. Loved that car.

Favorite food?
I’ve been eating pretty clean lately and staying healthy. But if you come from this area and you don’t say that pizza is your favorite food, you’re a liar. We ran Pizza Hut out of Wilkes-Barre. We’re like, “No way.”

Favorite city?
I love New York City. I have to go there just to get reenergized. There’s just an electricity.

Favorite vacation spot?
My girlfriend and I both work hard, so we like to go away once a year. Last year was Punta Cana. We’re going to Mexico this year. I just love to lie on the beach and do nothing.

Favorite thing about NEPA?
The older I get, the prouder I am of being from here, because we’re all so tough-skinned. You have to work harder, for everything, for less.

Any pets?
My best friend, Spike, who is a full-bred Jack Russell. He’s the most mellow, stoner Jack Russell in the world. Until we go running. Then he’s like a treadmill.

Have you had a defining personal moment?
When my parents took me to my first concert. It was Aerosmith at the old Montage amphitheater. I was around nine or 10, and it was also around the time that I started playing guitar. It was really crowded, and I started getting claustrophobic and my dad put me on his shoulders and said, “There’s only one place to be at a place like this,” and he pointed to the stage. I’ve just always loved performing. Even basketball games in grade school, people cheered. I guess I just want cheers. (Laughs)

What is it that you hope listeners take away from your new album?
If they know my catalog, I want them to be, like, “Ah. He got it.” For me to say what to expect from myself, I couldn’t tell you, but I’m sure other people know what they want my music to sound like. And you just hope that the songs that you write connect to those people. People can sense bulls@#t. This is honest music, man. I would listen to this record. And I just want to make records that I’d want to listen to.
