From visiting “The Dark Side of the Moon” to building “The Wall,” Pink Droyd spans the Pink Floyd catalog including the most memorable hits and some beloved obscure tracks.
A Crawfordsville native, Doug Henthorn found his passion for music as a 7-year-old. In the late 90s, Henthorn played guitar and sang for Pod, a rock band, on Columbia Records. After learning more about the music industry, Henthorn decided to form Healing Sixes. Four records, countless shows and 15 years later, the band decided to call it quits, resulting in Henthorn’s solo acoustic career. More recently, Henthorn returned from a European tour as a guest touring member of Joe Bonamassa’s band, where he played the likes of Royal Albert Hall and the Hammersmith Apollo. Henthorn is featured on the last two John Hiatt albums and several Joe Bonamassa albums and has worked with Tony Levin, Jason Bonham, Pat Thrall and Anton Fig. Henthorn is also a regular studio contributor on projects produced by famed L.A. producer Kevin “Caveman” Shirley.
