I was looking on the Jem Fest web site when I came across a reference to this great young player. Doug started playing guitar in 1997 having also learned to play piano, bass, and drums. He currently plays guitar for the band Drive and also performs with Course of Evolution(wmv), DWI, and Jody Joseph and the Average Joes.
Over the past few years, Doug has been hugely influenced by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and many other instrumental guitarists. Doug has an instrumental project calld the Doug Mikula band presents a unique and diverse brand of instrumental rock with styles ranging from hard rock to neoclassical metal to techno and more.
You can sample some of his playing from his website on his media page or listen to mp3's
or check out this two handed tap track from Jem Fest 2004 (mpg).
