I haven’t updated in quite a while and there have been some changes.
First and foremost, I have a new band, Doug Preston and the Soul Searchers. After a year of drifting, the closing of 2018 found me rehearsing with Ronnie Winters on guitar, Scott Andrews on bass, and Mark Riggs on drums. You might know Scott and Mark as the rock solid rhythm section from Arizona legends, The Pistoleros but they play in a variety of other bands as well. Ronnie plays in a power trio called Rig, a large ensemble called The Walkens and plays solo gigs around town . Ronnie is a rock and roll machine. All three of them are astounding musicians which makes it just a joy to play music with them.
Second, I have been working on a side project for the past few years with some friends from Texas. The project is called Track 8 and we are working on a five track EP. I’m hoping that we will have it done and ready for public release by this fall. I’ll post more information here once we get to that point.
On the social media front, I’m leaning more and more towards Instagram. I’ll try to keep my Facebook page and my Twitter account as current as possible, but Instagram and this website is going to be where I focus most of my energy from here out.
Moving forward, Doug Preston and the Soul Searchers will be booking appearances around the Phoenix Metroplex and as well as small jaunts around the southwest. I’ll keep you updated, I promise. Thanks for taking the time to stop in and read this. Cheers!
