Doug has been playing music since 1975, when he sold his Honda XL70 motorcycle for an electric guitar.
Influenced by many throughout the years, he has played in bands ranging from gospel to rock, to country and bluegrass. For the past 18 years, he has owned and operated the Doug’s Music Shop in Mount Carmel, Illinois.
This musical background has rubbed off on his wife and kids. “It is with great joy to fulfill my dream and play music with my family,” he says.
He also enjoys cutting and splitting wood, walking, carpentry and spending time with his family.
