Swiss tour fliers collage

Doug Legacy and Kurt Bislin have had a long and close friendship. They have toured Europe repeatedly with Kurt Bislin's D.Biters over the years. This resulted in the brilliant album "Sittin' On Top Of The World "in 2005.

Fellow musicians from Doug Legacy also contributed. On the album are Waddy Wachtel (Keith Richards, Bob Dylan), Lee Thornburg (Tower Of Power), Jimmy Z. (Rod Stewart, Eurhytmics) or Doug's old band colleague and gifted slide guitarist Mark Shark with Cla Nett, the Swiss blues veteran and winner of the first Swiss Blues Awards.

Now they are traveling as a duo for the first time. In this setting, they want to get closer to their audience and present their music in a more intimate setting. Doug Legacy with an outstanding voice and exhilarating piano and accordion playing and Kurt Bislin with rough vocals and authentic blues guitar present a gripping, varied program of blues, New Orleans style piano tunes, voodoo soul, Zydeco and Cajun music.

"Christmas With The Kranks"

Dan Aykroyd for "Christmas with the Kranks"
interview by Paul Fischer Nov 24, 2004

... I love using props. I'm from the Peter Sellers school of trying to prepare for the character.
Question: Does that include playing the accordion?
Aykroyd: The accordion is a nod to John Candy. There's no doubt about that because he did the polka thing.
Question: The Shmenge brothers.
Aykroyd: Or course, the Shmenge brothers. They were going to have me play the piano, but I thought the accordion was more interesting and, of course I wrote myself something so difficult to pull off. I don't play the accordion, but I worked with a wonderful guy called **Doug Legacy**.
The other thing that the accordion brought to the piece was sort of the Cajun/Louisiana flavour in the music. And that was neat. We worked on those songs together. He took the reeds out of my accordion and then he played at the side of the camera so I could watch his fingering so I think we pulled it off.


The Burning Piano from American Idol
- is now on tour with Grayson Chance
Red Piano American Idol

Doug is a piano tech for big shows in Los Angeles including American Idol. He gets calls to detune (Brian Wilson) and deconstruct pianos as well as repairing them.

Doug does not condone burning or dowsing pianos!
This was a piano that was already at the end of its life and is now being appreciated in another way.
