Influences & Inspiration
Both Don & Doug have been professional musicians in popular dance bands for over 50-years.
Don played lead guitar in rock, pop & country dance bands. He performed around the S.F. Bay area from the 1960s until he retired and moved north in 2015.
Doug played electric bass guitar and upright bass in dance bands in the N.W. also since the '60s.
After retiring, they met and discovered there were hundreds of songs they both knew from their years of playing in bands. Now they enjoy doing many of those "band" songs in an acoustic format. They also specialise in playing songs on ukulele that were never intended for ukulele.
Two chairs or stools (without armrests)
