Weaved within our songs, you will catch glimpses of our musical influences; bands such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rush, Yes, King's X, and Genesis, et al. In our performances, you will on occasion hear us cover songs from bands like Foo Fighters, Third Day, Coldplay, Lifehouse, Collective Soul, and others.

Doulos... beyond the ordinary.

Doulos is an alternative/progressive rock band based out of Kansas City.

Eric :: Bass and Vocals

For years, Eric played in an alternative rock cover band, performing the Kansas City club circuit. When the band eventually dissolved, he decided to continue his musical outlet with musicians that shared his passion for melodic progressive rock music.

His bent is toward Progressive Rock with influences from artists such as Yes, ABWH, Pink Floyd, Kansas, Genesis, Porcupine Tree, as well as various Alternative Rock artists.

John :: Guitar

Introduced to music by a musician father who played Top 40 music in a band around Southern California, music became a major influence in John's life. He started with drums at age five, progressed to guitar by age 16. Influenced by bands such as Rush, Jethro Tull, Genesis, and Yes, progressive music had an impact on him.

Billy :: Keys

Billy learned how to read music at age 5 and has been playing piano in churches since age 7. He is classically trained and attended the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston, TX. As an adult, Billy still plays for churches, as well as alternative/progressive rock and jazz.

Musical influences include Frederic Chopin, Claude Debussy, Vince Guaraldi, Miles Davis, Bob James, Tears for Fears, U2, Coldplay, Dave Matthews and Petra. Billy says, "I am convinced that music is a gateway to the most powerful force in the universe. May I be so blessed as to occasionally push the doors open a little wider."

Dennis :: Drums

Dennis has played drums since an early age. His mom bought him a drum when he was four, and he promptly beat the head through. Formal training started in sixth grade, and he learned to play jazz in seventh grade. He was mentally scarred from his ninth grade teacher yelling at him to get back on "1" during a pep rally in the school gymnasium. (He has since recovered) Most of his non formal drumming was done at high school and college gigs/parties.

Eventually most of his playing gravitated to praise and worship bands at Colonial Presbyterian and then Grace Community Church. Still, Dennis wanted to be involved with a band that sounded more like the influences he grew up with - Led Zeppelin, Yes, Jimi, King Crimson...Floyd...and is happy to be with this band and guys with similiar interests. A lot of his secular interests have turned to progressive bands with more positive influences, such as Glass Hammer, Torman Maxt, or Iona.
