Lawlapalooza Karaoke Performers du Jour

Doug Keil and Tyler Korus, 3Ls

 

Doug Keil and Tyler Korus first met while crowd-surfing at a Creed concert in early 1992. In the Fall of ’93, they played together on the Crenshaw Raiders of the Snoop Youth Football League in Los Angeles. It was during this time that the quarterbacks coach, Nathaniel Dwayne Hale (better known as Nate Dogg), introduced the boys to the beauty of “G-Funk.” As the years went by, Mr. Dogg constantly coached the two boys, both in sport, and in honing their voices to produce harmonious G-Funk melodies funked out with a gangster twist. Now that Mr. Dogg has passed away, and his other protégé, Warren G, is on Celebrity Fit Club, Doug and Tyler cordially invite you to join them on October 27, 2011 for a special, one-time performance of G-Funk on a whole new level, where the rhythm is the bass and the bass is the treble.
