Doublechief came together with musicians from all over North America who met up in Mount Shasta. Together they have a sound that covers many genres with a funk/reggae core. Doublechief’s sound ranges from guitar rich etheric landscapes to searing guitar solos played to funk, classic rock, and country. The rhythm section is carried by a bass sound that has a pillowy bottom end at times to a sharp funk bite. The drums keep the rhythm machine freight training along to keep people dancing all night. www.doublechief.com
