Profile Dugan McNeill, is an American musician and record producer who most notably worked with the 1980s Minnesota rock band Chameleon with members: Charlie Adams, Yanni, Mark Anthony, and Johnny Donaldson. The band recorded four albums together. Other recording credits include bass on the 1984 album Optimystique by Yanni, and mixing for 1994 album Hear the Masses by Bradley Joseph. He has worked extensively on producing, engineering, and mixing for “various artist” tribute CDs for ABBA, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Willie Nelson, Michael W. Smith, Rolling Stones, among others. He is co-owner and operator of Cherry Lane Studios in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

“In the Velvet Night” is the only solo album from Dugan released in 1989 from Polygram. To be clear, this is an ‘adult rock & pop’ oriented album, with AOR traces. Think 89-92 canadian sound, like Glass Tiger, Bryan Hughes Group (Beau Geste), then add some english style, and hi-tech imprint in some songs.”Stranger Than Paradise”, “There Goes My Heart Again” and specially “Love You Today” are the highlights for me. Pretty unknown album.
