Doug's first passion was the deep thump bass support for rock and roll in high school, college and law school. Building a law firm, litigation, making a living, politics and kids took priority for a while, but playing in church bands, sitting in with bands, hearing good music throughout the country kept fire in the belly. He has joined numerous gig bands but a passion to share the utter genius of Pink Floyd with artists of a kindred spirit has been with Doug for decades.
Charlie began listening to Pink Floyd long before he played drums. He says it's in his bones. So, it's natural that playing their songs came to be. Charlie and the guys from the band Flux still talk about when they decided, last minute, to do an entire Floyd set at a show. It was a hit and now it seems a seed was planted. Charlie is an Audio/Video engineer and boss at his company C The Sound, www.cthesound.com.
