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
features the duo performing Brown's original jazz tunes with
their "rock solid quintet".
