From lush, languid, lilting tropical sounds, to fast, furious, frenetic guitar picking, Doug Fitch performs traditional slack- key guitar and sings Hawaiian music with skill and passion. "This music reflects what I love about Hawai`i: The people, the mountains, the winds, rains, and rolling surf. This is the soundtrack for a way of life in which relationships are valued and nature is revered. Hawaiian music is fun, soulful, poignant, and elegantly straightforward. It’s been a gift to me and I love to share it."
Live music creates atmosphere and is a powerful addition to any gathering. Whether providing an acoustic backdrop or the center piece, the musician must be in touch with the audience and surroundings. "Solo performance allows me the flexibility to reach the crowd as intended." Doug performs regularly at major resorts in Waikiki and at weddings, private parties and corporate functions.
Doug Fitch specializes in the following music genres: Hawaiian, Traditional Slack key guitar, Folk, Folk/Rock, Soft Rock, Country Western, Ballads & Original compositions.
Doug Fitch did a fantastic job playing for our recent wedding ceremony and reception. He beautifully played all of the songs we requested and his singing and playing provided just the right atmosphere for our evening of celebration. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about his performance throughout the night. Doug was a pleasure to work with and a true professional, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a musician for their special event. Mahalo! ~Rich & Jodi Bourquin

Bryan and I would like to thank you for the absolutely beautiful job you did at our wedding in November!! You came highly recommended by my wedding coordinator so, we knew you'd be great but we didn't know how kind and thoughtful you would be. And on top of all that we could tell how much you love what you do. The fact that making music makes you happy added so much more to our special day and for that we will be forever grateful.
Bryan and Maggie Mermilliod
