Doug Brown and Michelle DuVall are rapidly gaining a reputation in the Midwest for playing some of the most swinging and refined jazz around. DuVall has been called "a cross between Ella Fitzgerald and Bernadette Peters" by Madison Newspapers' Rhythm, and "a vocalist who can take a standard and make it shine" by Isthmus. Isthmus names guitarist Brown "one of the best pickers in the Midwest" and his work with numerous artists and bands has led to performances at major music festivals in the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Doug and Michelle have enjoyed long runs performing at both Madisonís White Horse Inn and the Opus Lounge as well as at many other public and private functions. Recent highlights have included performances at the United States Conference Of Mayors, the Wisconsin Governor's Inaugural Ball, the Isthmus Jazz Festival and the Jazz At Five Concert Series. Brown and DuVall's refreshing renditions of classic swing songs can be heard on their highly praised first CD, "Standards". Their second CD, "Chillin' At The White Horse" features the duo performing Brown's original jazz tunes with their "rock solid quintet".
