Doug’s original band was made up of a group of people who met through an evening class in San Fransisco, called “How To Form a Band”. They were all of various levels of skill, and the set-up varied for each song (some times there were two guitarists, another times added vibes players, etc). We thought it’d be a neat idea to take this workshop model as the basis for assembling new backing bands for Doug’s upcoming live show.
That’s fine! All you’ll need to apply is to know your own way around a fretboard, keyboard, or a drum kit (or a triangle?) and some familiarity with Doug’s music. All skill levels are welcome to try out. Once we’ve picked out a backing crew...
Simply provide us with a link to a video recording of you playing along to one of Doug’s songs. Instrumentation is up to you. We’ll be picking a new backing crew for each of his five live shows in the cities he’s got lined up and we’d love to have you involved in this project!
It’s best if you live in any of the five cities where the shows are taking place.
We’re creating a live experience sourced locally from the communities that will be hosting the Doug Hream Blunt Experience. We aim to create a space where the love of music is valued over particular technical chops, enthusiasm over professionalism, and you’ll be shoulder to shoulder with other individuals who share the zeal for Doug's music and a desire to be involved in its live performance!
If you’re interested in being involved with the Doug Hream Blunt Experience when it comes to your town, send us a link to a video of you playing along to at least one of the following videos from this playlist. If chosen, you’ll be one of the few select fly guys involved in performing in the live show in your region!
