Steep Ravine is an acoustic quartet hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area. Blending melodic verse with rich instrumentals, their music bends the folk and bluegrass sound in compelling new directions while paying homage to the spirited Northern California landscape the band calls home.


"Entertaining" best describes The Douglas James Band. Most of the bands songlist is contemporary Country, but each member of the band has experience in many genres allowing the band to play a wide variety of music depending on the situation.

Based out of Southern Michigan, the 4 piece band was formed in 2004 by frontman Douglas James and has been steadily performing at clubs, fund raisers, private parties, and weddings throughout West Michigan and Northern Indiana ever since.

"Fan Friendly", is how many describe this band. Beyond the obvious musical talent, what sets this band apart from others is their ability to mold their show around the audience. Each show takes on its own form depending on what is happening with the audience. Douglas listens and watches the audience and takes every opportunity to include them in the show.

The band released their debut cd "Boondocky" in July of 2007.
From the funky title track "Boondocky" to the traditional ballad "The More I Changed", the band weaves diverse musical styles with a continuous country thread resulting in a "something for everyone" musical tapestry. The lyrics are relatable and diverse.
