Douglas James is no stranger to the entertainment business.....which is a nice way to say he is long in the tooth. Whether playing Lead Guitar in the Grand Rapids based Union Guns, or fronting his own band, Douglas is a consummate entertainer.
Douglas cut his musical teeth playing lead guitar in the 80's with a number of Southern Michigan rock bands. Most notably, regional acts Private Sector and Whyte Lyze. After doing a stint on the road with Minneapolis based "The Trouble With Eve". Douglas landed a gig playing drums with one of the most entertaining mid-west bandleaders, Billy Zack and the Billy Zack Attack.
Returning to Michigan in the mid 90's Douglas performed with a handfull of bands in southern Michigan again. IN 2004, Douglas set out on his own, forming "The Douglas James Band". This country/rock quartet performed shows throughout mid-west Michigan until 2013 when Douglas joined forces with Grand Rapids Based "Union Guns". a union (no pun intended) that has become a crowd favorite from Chicago to Pittsburgh.
