DugNAliss is (are?) a studio- based Pop Band from the Midwest specializing in. . . just about everything. Dug is a studio wizard/keyboardist who provides all the instrumentation and is also a prolific composer. He shares vocal duties with Aliss, a seductive vocal chameleon with startling range of both notes and expression.
DugNAliss have tried to strike a balance between unabashed tribute and drastic recomposition in their second album "Same Old Same Old". In some instances, they have stuck very close to the original versions (Heatwave, Nowhere Man). In others they have radically reimagined the styles and arrangements (Oh Babe, What Would You Say, Do You Wanna Dance).
"We don't treat the old stuff like museum pieces. No moldy oldies", says Aliss. The point is to keep it all fresh and alive and add your own perspective. a good song is a good song. DugNAliss are all about good songs."
DugNAliss respect the styles, are thoroughly steeped in the traditions, and yet in every case have something fresh and worthwhile to add.
