Doug Legacy is originally from Houston, Texas but also lived in New Orleans and Arkansas as a child where he acquired a taste for gumbo and delta blues. After a year of classical music education at the University of Texas he became a member of the Houston Symphony Chorale. While living in the Montrose area of Houston he formed the "Montrose Marching Band" which eventually took him to California to win "The Gong Show". Doug then hooked up with Rod Stewart to play steel drums on a European tour, which was followed by a tour with Delbert McClinton playing piano and organ. He later toured with bands such as E.L.O., Jackson Browne, Billy Joel, Rikki Lee Jones, Simon & Garfunkel, Stevie Nicks, Bruce Hornsby, Joe Cocker and The Tubes. One of his favorite tours was singing in Todd Rundgren''s “11 Voice Orchestra,” supporting his album "Accapella". For more than 15 years he still performs with his "Zydeco Party Band" while at the same time being a member of Danny Elfman''s band "Oingo Boingo". Based in Los Angeles since the late 70''s, he does a fair share of session work and occasionally has cool gigs fall in his lap like one-nighters with Paul McCartney. Doug has been in a variety of movies, television shows and commercials. The Zydeco Party Band has opened for the Neville Brothers in Japan and Europe and was the house band for the “Muppets Tonight” television show. He has recordings released in Japan and Europe and is now available in the U.S. on Wildcat Records. He has recently (2006) collaborated with the Swiss band “The Donkey Biters" on their new release "Sittin'' On Top Of The World".
