Thanks for stopping by the page of Dougie McQuillan Entertainer / Singer / Musician. I hope that you can find everything you need to know about me & what I can do for you. On this site you will find details of events (gigs), music & friends that I am involved with. You should also find posts about what I’ve seen & done on my travels plus, some of the shows & entertainers I follow & have seen over the years.
Happy New Year! I know the year is in full swing but this is the first time I’ve had a chance to update the page. Since I got back from Thailand, I had to hit the ground running with two gigs my first weekend back. On the Saturday doing my “Roy Orbison” tribute & then played guitar with the wonderful “Fayne & the Cruisers” at the Leith Dockers 60’s roadshow, alongside the “Hipple People”. The cruisers are one of the best bands around so it was quite an honour to be asked to play guitar with them. I had filled in on vocals with the guys before but to be asked to fill in on guitar was really something special for me. Wow! It was a great experience & really enjoyable!
The Big “O” Show: My tribute shows to the legendary singer Roy Orbison are going down really well & starting to gain a lot of interest. I now have a page dedicated to just these shows, including some videos from previous gigs. I am intending to do a tribute to his “Black & White Night” with a full band later this year. I’ll try to keep you posted about that…… when I calm down a wee bit……. Lol Check out the Tribute Page by clicking her
Riverdale Suite: I did my usual stint at the temporary home of Murrayfield Wanderers Rugby club for the Welsh Weekend on March 9th at the Riversdale suite. Once again great night was had by all! There will be a fund raiser for some of the team heading to the World Cup in Japan later this year. The date has still to be arranged but I’ll keep you informed.
Home: I will be home for most of the summer from 9th May to September & have some gigs already in the diary with a few dates still to be filled. So if you’re looking to make a booking just click on the link for the contact form. I’m off on my travels again in April but – for the first time in a few years – back in May for the whole of the summer season. Looking forward to the Edinburgh Festival in August. I was away for the Fringe last year & really missed all the fun. The month of August is like carnival time!
Fags n’ Matches: Thanks to everyone that came along to the “Fags n’ Matches” gig at the Maybury Casino on 2nd March. It’s great to see all the fans that have supported the band from their heyday of the 60’s & 70’s & It’s great that the band is still going after all this time. I’ll let you know when our next event is taking place.
