JD (or Doug) performs his highbrow sax sound (soprano, alto, and tenor saxophones) all over the state and has done so since the 1960’s in all kinds of venues. He has full instrumentation behind him. His saxes are hot — pure class —silky and golden. “Your sax is the best we have ever heard,” is his most often received compliment. JD can perform out front or provide subtle background/dinner music for garden parties, corporate parties, weddings, dances, or other special events.
Here’s a video showing him playing at an all-ages dance, and playing a variety of music.
Though you can listen to samples of his style and sound here, know that he has hundreds of other numbers, classic, romantic and jazz.
JD’s daughter Elise can at times unite her vocal/keyboard/wood-flute/guitar abilities with his. Also his son Bry joins in on special occasions with vocals, harmonicas and guitar. Together they do cover songs as well as originals.
