In Memory of Pete Douglas

Feb 9, 1929 - July 12, 2014

Founder - Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society
& Douglas Beach House, Half Moon Bay, CA

great jazz venue

Pete's daughters — Barbara Douglas Riching, Linda Tichenor, and Virginia Castillo — are working closely together to ensure the Bach's future. Pete’s middle daughter, Barbara, will succeed him as president of the Society. Barbara is leading the charge in carrying on her father's vision of presenting jazz in a chamber-like setting, where both the musicians and audience can share an intimate experience.

“My father created an incredibly special venue and it would be impossible for me to not continue his legacy,” said Riching. “There is no way I could ever replace him or the special spirit that he brought to the house, and we are extremely excited to begin a new era."


Thank you for your continued support!
