Crowd Participation: Doug Onstad plays with a depth of feeling and rhythmic flair that takes the instrumentation, whether piano or guitar, and transforms it into a multi-layered pleasurable and gratifying arrangement. 

Doug’s work provides a playground for Julie Weiner’s vocal accompaniment, as she rides freely along lyrical stylings and glides through the nuances of a graciously extemporized performance to its captivating resolve thus building the emotional groundwork for cherished and memorable moments by her audience. 

Much more than that, are the clever and witty interactions between Julie, Doug and the audience which result in moments of irreverent humor and a general good time.  The combination results in great music and charm by an endearing duo.
