B i o g r a p h y
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Doug and I play music. I do a lot of solo acoustic shows at small clubs, restaurants, and winebars. You'll hear a wide variety of stuff at these shows ranging from Johnny Cash and the Beatles to Zac Brown and Coldplay. Sometimes I'll invite a friend to play along - I often play with the amazing Wes Cichosz (guitar, saxophone, vox) or my percussionist friend, the amazing Kyle Olson (percussion, vox).
Other friends that join me:
I play bass with the Lisa Rene Band, one of the Chicago area's finest event bands - weddings, corporate gigs. We also do an occasional bar gig and festival. Check us out at
I also play with a band called Bandaroke (www.bandaroke.com); we do "live band karaoke". We have a pretty significant songlist - come check us out and you'll get to come up and sing or play or both with the band.
Other bands I play with:
The Broken Halos
Finally, I lead worship just about every Sunday at Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church in Elmhurst Illinois; the contemporary service is usually at 10:30; we switch to 10:00 for part of the summer; be sure to check the website for times. It's a great church, check it out some time.
