Doppelganger Band

Doppelganger is a nine piece variety-dance band that brings a high level of excitement and professionalism to your Event. The talent of this band combined with state of the art sound and lighting production, which Doppelganger provides, will take your Event to the next level. “The Doppelganger Sound” is created with a driving rhythm section, tight horns and two outstanding singer-entertainers fronting the band. “The Doppelganger Sound” can be customized for any type of Event or any size Venue. We perform at Weddings, Galas, Corporate Events, Clubs, Conventions, and Theme Parties.

Doppelganger is made up of musicians from all over the country, and all of them have several decades of experience and masters at their craft individually. At one time or another they have all landed here making Houston Texas their permanent home. The band was formed in 1969, (Dave Vandiver / the trombonist still in the band) started the group playing the Hot Summers at Astroworld, (mostly Tijuana Brass music back then). From those days Doppelganger was launched… and so began a long successful run as one of the top “Event” bands in the State of Texas to this day, performing for President George W. Bush at his second Inaugural “Stars & Stripes” Ball in Washington DC, and many exclusive events both corporate and social over the years from Texarkana to Cancun. Doppelganger performs on average about 80 shows per year and is a favorite at the prestigious “Sambuca Restaurant & Bar” located in the Historic Rice / downtown Houston, performing once a month at this unique venue.
