In his eleventh year of performing, Dangerous Doug Harper continues to excite audiences with own entertaining style of music. From serious songs, to some funny songs, and lots of just all around enjoyable music, equipped with great lyrics, melodies, riffs, and hooks.

In the summer of 1994, began his musical journey when he started playing clubs and private events in the southwest Missouri area learning the ropes of being a musician. In 1997, he earned an award for his guitar soloing ability from the Missouri Jazz Educators, at Drury University in Springfield, Missouri. Later that year Doug recorded with his band at that time, co-writing most of the songs and serving as the producer for the project.

While Doug had music on his mind, it was no surprise when he took a day job as an afternoon drive time radio disk jockey to help further his musical endeavors financially, and so he could keep his girlfriend. He quickly worked his way up the ladder in the radio world, until he could finally pursue other musical projects, and as they like to say, go solo. He then began working on a variety of musical projects, with various musicians, to round off, and season him as a musician, producer, and promoter.

Doug now has recorded on seven recording projects, produced and promoted seventeen CD albums, promotes a musician based web site community www.localearmusic.com, and has an indie label called Purple Shed Records. He has so much cooking all at one time, and still tours full time living life to its fullest. Doug has performed in seventeen states, over sixty cities, and towns, with over nine hundred live performances, including: clubs, arenas, TV shows, and radio. He has opened up for, shadowed, and shared the stage with some great artists such as: Jerry Lee Lewis, Dean O. Torrence (Jan & Dean), Bill Medley (the Righteous Bros.), Pat Boone, Monty Colvin (Crunchy, & Galactic Cowboys), Brooks & Dunn, Lynn Anderson, Connie Smith, Surf City All-Stars, Joe Nichols, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Puddle of Mudd, Shooter Jennings, and so many more.
