Doug Vennard as “Joe Walsh”
DOUG VENNARD (Guitar)
“Life’s been good to me so far”
Doug has been a familiar figure around the New England music scene for many years. Having been raised on the British Invasion pop rock of The Beatles and The Stones, he immersed himself in his love of music from a very early age. He spent his formative teenage years and early adulthood playing prog rock on the New England club circuit, before doing a complete 180 and embracing the intensity of Stevie Ray Vaughan and the blues resurgence in his later years. Throughout his music career he has played and recorded in original projects, travelled the country in tribute shows, and paid many dues cranking out classic rock & blues at local bars.
These many influences and styles have shaped Doug into a chameleon-like guitarist. He is equally comfortable playing rock, pop, blues, jazz, country, rockabilly and Americana – both electric and acoustic, slide and standard. This versatility makes for a perfect fit into the varied styles of the Eagles catalog. Sliding into one of the guitar posts of this Eagles Tribute Band was as comfortable to Doug as an old pair of jeans. The challenge of replicating the style, tone and feel of these classic songs shines through when you witness his utter joy in performing them live.
Or, as Doug is known to say: “I can’t complain…. But sometimes I still do.”
