Brought together by the music of John Denver and radio host Dick Cerri, Doris Justis and Sean McGhee performed together for over 31 years before Doris retired from her day job and moved to sunny and warm Hawaii in 2016.
Singing and playing guitars, they were celebrated for their close harmonies and fun stage presence.
For many years they were the houseband for the “Music Americana/WFMA Showcases.”
Doris had been a mainstay of the local folk scene as a concert performer, producer, coffeehouse regular and host of her own radio show and production manager of Dick Cerri’s Music Americana.
Sean is an outstanding tenor vocalist and guitarist, with a quick wit and irreverent sense of humor.
A master of the 12-string guitar, he has been featured as one of the “Three Folk Tenors.”
The Kreeger Auditorium is a beautiful, state-of-the-art, 290 seat auditorium just inside the main entrance to the Bender JCC of Greater Washington
and was the site of the Side by Side Aloha Concert on September 26, 2015, the last concert before Doris moved to Hawaii.
The Bender JCC is located at the corner of Montrose Road and E. Jefferson St. (6125 Montrose Road) in Rockville MD, on the Charles E. Smith Community Service Campus.
The Center is accessible from both the Twinbrook and White Flint Metro stops, and offers free on-site parking.
