His sets often include everything from jazz standards to sing-along favorites as well as his own songs, when appropriate.

Hare’s greatest strengths are his flexibility and broad repertoire. His stylistic range spans from jazz to oldies to classic rock to country, as well as indie rock and classical. Because he knows so many songs, he can choose to play songs to please that particular audience, and he really enjoys this personalized approach.


I am a songwriter.  I invite you to listen to a few of my recordings.


As a music contractor, I’ve hired and recommended Doug for years. From private parties to community events, he’s been the secret sauce that’s made so many of my gatherings special and memorable. His skills as a pianist and singer are phenomenal. He’s a top-notch musician, and he has an enormous repertoire of music at his fingertips. But most impressive is his ability to read an audience and offer up the right kind of music to ensure everyone has a good time. Doug’s a true entertainment professional in every sense. His rates are fair, he’s easy to work with, and he always aims to please. I would gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a superb pianist/singer for their event.
