Summer is in full swing, and our schedule is heating up! We have several shows already on the Calendar and couldn't be happier about sharing our music with everyone. We will once again be playing the Indianapolis Festival Circuit which includes St. Thomas Aquinas' Sausage Fest, the Immaculate Heart Festival, and the St. Luke's Fall Festival. These are kid-friendly events, complete with food, games, and all kinds of activities for the kiddos. These are adult-friendly events as well! We look forward to seeing you and all of your friends this summer!
Joe & Paul Dugan grew up in Columbus Indiana; a small town in the rolling hills of Southern Indiana where Acoustic music is rich and abundant.
Born into a family of eight children, music was a driving force behind their daily existence. Joe & Paul's Grandmother, Margaret Jean Dugan, played organ at Mass every Sunday & thankfully passed the musical "torch" down to the next generation. Their older brother Mike, a classically trained piano player, put instruments in their hands at an early age & helped them discover the world of music as they know it today.
Tom Baker was born and raised in Richmond, IN. Born into a musical family, Tom’s influences in Gospel & Blues were forged early in his childhood through his grandfather, James Whitley, a Southern Baptist minister. Tom’s been playing live music locally for over 40 years. His musicianship & steady rhythm continue to be the driving force behind the band.
The influence of Acoustic/ Americana Music runs deeply in the Dugan family. Perhaps it's no coincidence that Columbus is located just miles from Bean Blossom; also considered by many as the home of Bluegrass Music. 2011 was the 100 year Celebration of Bill Monroe.
We feel privileged & honored to share our music with you.
Sincerely, The Dugan Brothers Band
