The Desperate Measures

Doug Gochman is the lead singer and guitar player for The Desperate Measures. Doug's vision, while forming the band, was to create a cover band in which "I get to sing and play the songs I enjoy singing and playing. And, for the most part, they happen to be songs that audiences like to hear. Maybe a nugget from their past they haven't heard in a long time. Because, we generally don't play what's in the current top 40. We dig deep into the past 50 years of Country and Rock and Roll for material that's soulful and inspiring. Those are the types of songs I like to sing and play."

Another part of Doug's initial vision included surrounding himself on stage with terrific musicians. "I wanted to work with guys that were not only fun to hang out with, but who were also cracker jack musicians, who can kick ass on every song on the set list." Filling that role are Jeff Winter on Drums, Peter Freiberger on Bass; Richard Levinson on keyboards and a rotating cast of guitar players that includes Robert Heft, John "Groover" McDuffie, Bob Gothar, and Dan Ciarfalia.

Performing songs made famous by the likes of Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakum, The Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker Band, George Straitt, Merle Haggard,  George Jones, Little Feat, Willie Nelson, Chris LeDoux, Garth Brooks and many others,  The Desperate Measures keep audiences entertained all night long. Whether it's dancing or just listening while drinking a cold beer, you're sure to have fun spending time with The Desperate Measures. See y'all out there on the trail!! TDM @ CPS 1 25 17
