ABOUT GOOD TROUBLE
Good Trouble calls Tucson home. We’re six seasoned musicians with a wide
variety of experience in all musical genres – from Motown to country, rock ‘n
roll to blues. But what we really love is classic rock from the 60s, 70s and
80s - the tunes that people know and love - and are constantly updating our
playlists. We want to play your favorite song!
Cat’s been rocking the music world across the globe in Europe,
Africa, and now in the desert! With roots in jazz and progressive
bass guitar and vocals, she’s also played in local Celtic rock, prog
rock, punk rock, and African reggae bands. A huge musical
theater fan, she also can’t resist belting Journey songs a la “Les
Miserables.” Her vocal influences include Pat Benatar, Joan Jett,
Linda Rondstadt, and Barbra Streisand. Cat is a retired Naval
officer and diplomat enjoying the desert and some Good Trouble.

Doug began his musical journey in the '60s as a surf-oriented
guitarist, and fronted several bands while in school. About the time
that he heard his first Leslie spin up, he made the switch to organ
and piano. Heavily influenced by Seattle acts such as Dave Lewis,
the Dynamics, and the Wailers, Doug continued to play and write
music, sometimes sitting in with bands in the Spokane area. In the
‘70s he put the keyboards in storage and began a career in
broadcasting. Now, many years later, he's picked up the bass and
is rocking again.
