NEW ALBUM - February 5, 2014

You have no idea how busy we have been here at Bohemian Highway.  

We are working on a NEW ALBUM!!!

We began recording in July 2013 and we are in the last phases of wrapping up this exciting adventure.  We have been so fortunate to work first and foremost, our band, Jane and Kent Fossgreen.  These wonderful musicians help us breathe life into our new songs.  

We have so much more to tell you, and we will be sending out emails to alert you of the album's progress.  In this coming week we hope to launch our Kickstarter Campaign which will help us take the album to a bigger audience.  Thanks in advance for your support!

Shorter Days - October 25, 2013

We are fast approaching the end of the year and Sebastopol is looking very much Autumnal.  The grapes are all harvested, the apples are tasty, and we are polishing our newest effort....a new album.  It should be available for purchase by the beginning of 2014.  You WILL love it....trust us.

Words from a fan - June 25, 2013

 

Hi Doug,

It was way cool seeing you and The Bohemian Highway at the Hopmonk.


What I meant by stillness in your music (maybe I said silence) is that you
folks have an incredible sense of spiritual truth in your lyrics, amazing twang and 
an upbeat sense of harmony. something like that ;-)

GOOD VIBES - March 20, 2013

THE BOHEMIAN HIGHWAY played a benefit last Sunday in Guerneville at the Main Street Station.  The benefit was held for the West County Food Bank and the Guerneville Senior Citizen Food Bank.  The place was festive in GREEN.  Many wore hats and beads and such.  The Main Street Station presents an all acoustic venue....no mics, no amps.  It is a challenging show, considering the size of the room.  BoHi, however, stole the show.  Folks just LOVED our songs, performance and are now fans.  Here is the thanks from one of the organizers, Oak

"Many of our friends were very excited about your music and your song-writing.  Thanks to you and all of your band, each of you, for coming to play for us... I'll be looking forward to seeing you again soon.  I think at the French Garden...  We'll sure try to get wherever it is."  Oak.

Take a walk on the Bohemian Highway - January 15, 2013

Happy New Year everyone!  It is c-o-l-d here in Sonoma County.

But we are keeping warm by writing new songs and rehearsing with the new, 4-piece, North Bay version of the Bohemian Highway.  We are happy to have Kent and Jane Fossgreen helping us out these days.

Come check us out at one of the dates on the calendar page.

Winter has arrived - December 1, 2012

On the first day of the last month of the year, I'm listening to the rain while we decorate our Christmas tree. 

I love the rain. I've always heard music in it.  It has inspired several songs for The Bohemian Highway.

I am grateful for the opportunities I've had to share and play music with so many of you.

These days I'm enjoying the contributions of Kent and Jane Fossgreen to our new Sonoma County songs.

Check us out!  We are the Bohemian Highway.

DREAMING OF SPRING - April 23, 2012

Hey Fellow Music Fanatics

Music is on our minds. We are gigging....check out the Calendar Page!!!!!

In addition to performing, staff writers at Bohemian Highway are working around the clock for more new material....bigger....better....newer.....stronger....you get the point. There is serious talk at B.H. Headquarters that a new album is in the works. Keep tuned in to find out more...

Hey, BoHighway just added a drummer. Right? We are SUPER excited to tell the world that Chip Trombley is playing the skins in BoHigh. He is a natural, in more ways than one. First, he plays with our favorite West County Band....THE TRAILER PARK RANGERS. Second...he performed with The WESTERLEYS, and recorded several live shows with them.
And lastly, he lives about 5 miles from us...right downtown Sebastopol.
Now we have Rob on bass and Chip on drums, and Bo High is LOCKED INTO the GROOOOOOOOOOVE. Thanks, guys.

THE WESTERLEYS REUNION BASH - February 24, 2012

The WESTERLEYS come together for another great reunion show. We will be joined by
STELLA as well as BOHEMIAN HIGHWAY. Don't miss this great opportunity to see
one of my favorite bands from last century!

FEBRUARY 2012 - February 2, 2012

GROUNDHOG DAY....Apparently, the groundhog saw his shadow, so that means 6 more weeks of winter....or in our case, 6 more weeks of NO winter. Either way, we here at Bohemian Highway Headquarters are writing more songs, and working on the new album.

HAPPY 2012 - January 3, 2012

Wishing all my fans, friends, and fellow musicians a most Happy and Healthy New Year. 2012 will feature Doug playing with BoHighway, as well as Misisipi Rider and The Westerleys. Keep checking back for details!!!

BOHEMIAN HIGHWAY - September 25, 2011

The Bohemian Highway had a wonderful gig at the Pacific Coast Fog Festival in Pacifica, CA.
The lineup was anchored by the bass wizard, Rob McLucky! Michael Romanowski was featured on electric guitar, vocals and washboard. Barbee and Ms. Emily stepped up to the mic stand and helped round out our fat harmonies. Of course, my sidekick, Lady Aye, decked out in hot green kept the rhythm guitar working hard. Great Fun.

DOG DAYZE OF SUMMER - August 3, 2011

Hey....how did we get to August already? Come see The Bohemian Highway at Cur-Ville....

GOOD REVIEW - November 30, 2010

11/27/10 Turkey Trot at
Cafe Du Nord, SF.

Great Show. Lots of new fans.
Even better review of the show....check it out on our press page.....

BOHEMIAN HIGHWAY - November 15, 2010

We feel very excited about finally choosing the name
"The Bohemian Highway."

The dictionary describes Bohemian as "A person with artistic interest who lives in an easygoing way, untroubled by middle-class social standards."

In addition we live about a mile from the acutal BOHEMIAN HIGHWAY...all 11 miles that wind from FREESTONE to OCCIDENTAL to MONTE RIO. Imagine, a Highway only 11 miles long. That's it.

And the name was born

San Francisco Giants - November 3, 2010

On Monday, November 1st the San Francisco Giants became World Champions. What a great season AND even better post-season

Dog Days of Summer - August 19, 2010

Well, here in Northern California we have not woken up to a fog free morning since way back when. Not to complain, though. Much of the rest of the U.S. is melting or drowning, so a little fog is okay.

Lots of music going right now, which is exactly how I like it. Two gigs this weekend, two gigs next weekend, then off to Strawberry Music Festival over Labor Day!

North Bay by Storm - March 30, 2010

Okay, That sounds a little extreme...but it is storming out tonite, and probably tomorrow night, so there. But really what I mean to say is that I am meeting some amazing players, songwriters, and really cool people in my new hometown. Gig this week! Check it out!!!

SF Gig - March 5, 2010

Hey, this is BIG news! I have a show this weekend in San Francisco at the Plough and Stars on Clement. Should be a great time and I hope some of our pals will be there.

First gig of the Decade! - January 25, 2010

I'll be out at The Makeout Room with Misisipi Rider on Friday, Jan. 29th.
Its an early show with Loretta Lynch. 7:30 to 9:30 C'mon out for happy hour

MUSINGS - November 7, 2009
