Back in the 80’s, Doug hosted a regular university Blues radio show. On one occasion he rang and chatted on air with his hero, Jimmie Vaughan. So inspired, Doug headed off to Texas to catch up with Jimmie and meet some of the great blues guitar slingers around Austin at the time. These experiences forever shaped and forged Doug’s inventive playing style and tone. A band original, Doug’s unique playing style provides that all-important rhythm / lead guitar Mudcat sound. “I’m just lucky to be playing this stuff with a bunch of guys who love this music as much as I do.”
