About the Musicians ✨
Doug Badilla 🎼 was born into a musical family of 12 children. He had siblings that played drums, percussion, bass, guitar and sang songs together. He studied piano, drums and vocals at Seattle Pacific University & Central Washington University. For the Concert at the Whale, Doug will be playing a selection of Motown songs from the 70’s. Songs by artists such as Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers and Sly & the Family Stone.
Kiera, Brian, and Kevin Messing 🎸 The Messing Link was formed many years ago when dinosaurs roamed the earth and it was a wild, wild world. Just kidding! It was more like in the 1970s. They're currently a three piece family band that plays classic rock from the 60's, 70's and 80's. The Messing Link has had many different members over the years, mostly different family and some talented guests. The Messing brothers have been playing together for over 40 years. Keep on rockin in the free world!
A throwback to the original "Concerts in the Park," this event is presented by the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council in partnership with the Downtown Business Association. ...
