the 1990s, Dopplegang rose to prominence as one of the area's
most popular jam/rock bands. Described as a mix of Southern
Rock,/Celtic Slam/Bluegrass/Folk Fusion, every original and
unique cover song from this dynamic six-piece band, was stamped
with the Dopplegang brand.
of several well-known players from a wide range of professional
music backgrounds, Dopplegang is best known for its extended
jams and eclectic musical styles ranging from originals to "original
covers" from Little Feat, Peter Gabriel, The Grateful Dead,
David Baerwald, and lesser-known gems mined from the annals
of Adult Alternative formats.
is comprised of Patric Miller (guitar, mandolin, lead vocals),
Brian Price (electric fiddle), Brad Rosen (drums), Peter Bach
(guitar, vocals), Jeremy Gibons (bass), and Frank Sprouse (lead
band was formed from some of the best-known bands in the area,
and its members have extensive recording, performing and touring
credits including an Emmy Award winning songwriter/producer
(Miller), the band Old and in the Way, SpiritFarm, Eugene Hot
Club (Price), Little Women and Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormans
(Rosen), Nine Days Wonder, Highstreet (Bach) and countless other
area bands too many to mention (Gibons and Sprouse).
In September of 1993, Dopplegang played their first "big show"
at the Eugene Celebration's 6th Street "Good Times" Stage. It
marked the launching point of more than six years of concerts,
bar gigs and festivals, before the bands members began moving
away to raise families, nurture "real jobs" and bacting like
the responsible adults their families needed them to be.
They played a single "Reunion Show" in the Fall of 2001, at
the Wild Duck, and then once again spread to points North and
South to continue their lives. And now…almost 20 years to the
day, of our formation, Dopplegang is getting together for a
20-Year-Reunion Concert that brings back the FULL roster of
talented (if aging) players for a night of music, and memories.
The show will be presented at the WOW Hall, where Dopplegang
played no fewer than 15 times as both headliner and supporting
act (for a long list of luminaries).

countless festivals including The Oregon Country Fair (3), Eugene
