"Here I am..."
The Doug Roberts Band is named after it's founder and lead singer, Douglas Roberts. Doug has always had a love for music, and this shows in his ability to play multiple instruments, and also surfaces in the songs he writes and composes.
Doug was raised to know about the Lord, but as he grew older, he strayed from the Lord. A few years back, He found his way back to the Lord. Since that great transformation in his life, He felt the Lord compelling him to use his musical ability and talent to work for HIM. Thus, the Doug Roberts Band was born. Different people have came and gone, singing and playing different instruments with him. His wife Julie is a true blessing to his ministry. She is there for every service or event the group attends, that she possibly can. She is a very special lady that does so much behind the scenes! We all think she's great, and truely appreciate all her time and effort she puts into the group.
Currently, Rhonda Leddington sings some lead, and also sings back up. Rhonda is an awesome vocalist, who brings her own style and sound to the group. The Doug Roberts Band is blessed to have her on stage with them.
Miranda Willard joined the group in February of 2011. She sings back up for the group, and occasionally lead. She plays the keys. She's willing to make herself available to be used where needed.
Our latest addition to the group is Jamie Begley. He plays drums. He has been a deffinate blessing. He's a talented drummer & a willing vessel, always willing to help any time he's called upon. We are blessed to have him be a part of DRB.
Our band is very unique. We have a sound all our own, as each of the members in the band come from different up bringings, church backgrounds and musical styles, and they all blend to make the band what it is today. All of the band members agree on one thing. Our number one goal is to reach out to a lost and dying world, and let them know about our precious Saviour Jesus Christ. We also love to encourage our fellow believers along the way! We all love the LORD, and love singing and working for HIM, uplifting His name where ever we go! The majority of the songs we sing are original songs written by Doug. When talking of the group's goals and desires, one of his original songs always comes back to my mind, "Here I am, Lord, Here I am!" We want to always make ourselves available to do God's work, and be in His will! We love going and singing for the Lord, where ever he opens he opens the door, in our eyes, just as in the Lord's eyes, there is no denominational gap! We are happy to spread word of the Lord through song, where ever we are asked. We are in this with one goal, to reach the lost! God bless you all, is our prayer! ~DRB~

We sing a lot of original songs, mostly written and composed by Doug Roberts and members of DRB. We also throw in a mix of some hymnals, southern gospel and praise and worship. We try to cover all basis to reach and connect with all ages and every genre of Christian/Gospel music. Our main goal is to offer hope to the lost and hurting and answers to the searching. We want to be a light and encouragement to those we come in contact with. As previously mentioned, we enjoy going to church, outdoor events, festivals and benefits. Whatever event you are holding, we are glad to be a part of it!
We play live music when we sing. Everyone in our group can play at least one instrument, most several. That is a big part of our group. We each have a great genuine love for music and put a lot of time and effort into practicing. We also can bring our own sound system with us when we come, so places we go do not have to worry about adequate sound systems, having enough mics or even with sound. We have the resources and capabilities to take care of this.
We do a lot of Original Songs, but usually sing a few by various artists that people are more familar with. Listed first is a list of some of our original songs, and you can scroll on down to view some of the songs written by other artists that we sing. These lists do not include all of the songs we sing, but a majority of them. Of coarse we never sing all of them at one singing as there are too many, but this will give you an idea of what we do.
