The Bellingham Herald
Drummer Julian MacDonough is well-known in the Bellingham community as one of the best drummers around, particularly as a jazz drummer. Born in Everett, he grew up in Bellingham and describes himself as an "almost-graduate of Sehome High School," who then "studied at the 'University of Mike Allen."' (Allen is the jazz program coordinator at Western Washington University, and MacDonough is part of WWU's Faculty Jazz Collective.)
