My name is Doug Houser, and I am a solo guitarist/singer. I play and sing songs from primarily the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and beyond. I concentrate on songs that everyone remembers and can sing along with. As of this writing, I have over450 songs on my song list. I have been playing and singing since I was 15 years old. I grew up with the British Invasion and all the great music to come out of those decades. I play acoustic 6 string and 12 string guitars typically amplified through a Bose L1 Model II system. I also have a smaller amp for more private parties/events/venues.
I am looking to expand my gig venue base. Currently I am playing regularly for:
- The Rellik Tavern and Ultra Lounge, Benicia
- Back Forty Texas BBQ, Pleasant Hill
- Rocco’s Ristorante & Pizzeria, Walnut Creek
- V Wine Cellar, Yountville
- Wine events, festivals, weddings, rehearsal dinners, backyard parties, etc.
I am not a recording artist and I am not selling any CD’s or downloads, etc. I am purely a live venue guy, hoping to bring enjoyment of music to guests of the venue.
Since I am a solo artist, it’s easy for me to be flexible in scheduling. I am also a retired school teacher, therefore, music is my main interest, so again, very flexible for scheduling gigs.
