Pat McDougall — Keyboards, Vocals

    Pat’s been playing keyboards since dear old Sister Agnes browbeat him into learning the stirringly militaristic "Cossack Dance" on the convent piano back in third grade. Once he heard Elton John’s "Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding," however, he quickly strayed down the rock & roll path and has never returned.

    Pat has played and sung in several different bands of varying styles, including Runaway Train, a blues/R&B horn band in which he and Rod first played together. Tall Static presents an opportunity to reduce those various musical influences to their basic essences and cook up something really slammin’. Or at least really greasy.

    Pat's far-flung musical pursuits have included composing music for commercials, independent films, theatrical productions and corporate presentations. His compositions have won recognition from the Portland Music Association and Keyboard magazine.

    Aside from Tall Static, Pat works in marketing communications, spends time with his family, and is the Webmaster for the Cascade Blues Association. Which you really should join.
