Welcome to One Washington Circle Hotel Event Calendar - A DC Hotel
Alan Doyle chalks up a lot of where is he right nowwith both his third solo album and his second book released in October 2017to luck. Im the luckiest guy Ive ever even heard of, he says. This was all I ever wanted, a life in the music business, singing concerts. I was lucky to be born in the family I was, in Petty Harbour. I was lucky that Sean, Bob and Darrell found me and asked me to join their band.
