What an interesting interview. Much more to Doug and Eve then just the bar band I saw countless times. In late 69 my friend Joe had just gotten out of Nam and He and I went at least a couple of times a week to the Keg in Saginaw to see DA and the Witnesses. Well to be honest we went to see Eve and listen to the Band. She would be front and center in knee high boots and an all white outfit. We thought she was the most beautiful thing since Marilyn Monroe. Plus it didn't hurt they sounded great for a three piece band. Still remember Doug at 2 am with his "Last call for Alcohol". thanks for some great memories

The place to be was The Keg on the Dixie in Saginaw. D. A. and The Witnesses was a terrific band. Eve was talented and gorgeous, and we all wanted to look and sound like her. Doug was mesmerizing. Their three-person band put out some great music. They were well-liked and very successful, and they played at The Keg for about a year, I believe. I seem to remember their closing song was Neil Diamond’s ‘Red, Red Wine.’ Those were the days...
