Doug McCleary: Celebrant, Officiant, Musician


Music

I took my first piano lesson at 6. Wrote my first song when I was 11. Picked up the bass guitar when I was 12. Earned my Bachelors Degree in Music and Religious Studies in 1984. Over the years I have played in numerous bands, worked as a studio musician, engineer and producer, accompanied and led choirs, and played music for churches, weddings, funerals and various backyard parties and events. I currently play keyboards for the popular Portland dance band "NW Sugar Shakers." I have previously played with the Chris Loid Band, City Nights, Rodeo Rose, Michele Drey and Branded, and Homebrew, all from the Portland area.

I also occasionally perform as a musician for funerals, both when I officiate the service, or just to play and sing. I know and can perform most of the "standard" repertoire for funerals (well-known hymns, The Lord's Prayer, Ave Maria, etc.) and am willing to learn (quickly) most any other song a family may desire for a service. Send me an email or call to inquire about rates and/or availability.
