Doug Johns: The Dougumentary

Doug Johns is one of the funkiest bassists alive. The Terra State Video Club caught some of the funk with this 45-minute look into his style, his outlook, and his personality.

“I’m proud to announce… The Dougumentary!” Johns shared on Facebook. “Filmed at Terra State Community College/Terra Video Club/ Brandon Beining, Mark Grine, Chris Cavera. These are all talented cats! I’m grateful for their time and expertise in the making of “The Dougumentary.” Sit back, grab a drink, maybe some potato chips, dip, another drink, and watch (please do in that order). I think you’ll enjoy.”

We think you will, too.
