ABOUT

Hi!

My primary instrument is piano/keyboards, and I also have some fairly decent guitar chops (especially acoustic guitar).

I graduated with a jazz performance degree from the University of North Texas, and moved to the Raleigh (Triangle) area in 2010 after 15 years in Manhattan.

Other miscellaneous info:

- All the audio samples posted here were recorded with one pass through -- no overdubs: just two hands and a keyboard

- I am currently in three projects:

* keyboardist for funk/reggae/dance band BIGFooT GRooVE (bigfootgroove . com)

* fill-in keyboardist for Motown/classic rock band West Street Band (weststreetband . com)

* pianist/guitarist for jazz vocalist Peggy Hayes (peggyanddoug . net)

I also play jazz (piano) regularly at Triangle jazz hot spots like the Empress Room, Brasa in Brier Creek and C. Grace.

I'm looking for a working band of seasoned, professional musicians to add my rather hefty chops to.

For more information and audio samples, please check out my website at w w w .dougkobs. com.
