The Doug Morrison Trio is a blend of instrumental rock, jazz, and blues. The Austin based trio is at home in a high volume rock club or a small space at conversation level. Excellent musicianship and flexible compositions allow the trio to adjust volume and presentation to suit the venue. The melodic instrumental format appeals to club patrons of varying demographics, listeners have described the trio as reminiscent of Eric Johnson, Al Di Meola, Jeff Beck, Allan Holdsworth, and Jimi Hendrix. Previous Austin venues have included: Rock City, Red Eyed Fly, Headhunters Lounge, Dirty Dog Bar, Room 710, Red 7, Emo’s, Hanover's Draught Haus, Encore, Boomerz, and private events.
