DOUG IS BACK ! ! ! !

On February 14, 2023 No Green Bananas was privileged to present Singing Valentines to Dr. V. Seenu Reddy, his gathered staff and associates at TriStar Centennial Medical Center on behalf of our Lead singer, Doug Wooten.

 quartet members are also regular singers with Nashville Music Medics. (

On January 10, 2023 Doug underwent triple by-pass surgery by Dr. Reddy, Tri-Star Cardiovascular Surgery. Nashville Music Medics were at Tri-Star Centennial Childrens Hospital on January 11, 2023, presenting our customary bi-weekly outreach to the children and families, under the guidance of the staff of the Centennial Certified Child Life Specialists.  At the same time, Doug was in resting in Cardiac SICU less than 24 hours post-op.  After securing approval from the ICU staff and Doug's family we made our way to sing for Doug.  On February 14th,Valentines Day, Doug sang in great voice and renewed health in a full day of Singing Valentines deliveries with his quartet (and guest bass, Paul Wietlisbach), including a stop at Tri-Star Centennial as a gesture of sincere thanks and great appreciation for the personal care and professional expertise to put him back on his feet in full voice!

No Green Bananas was one of three quartets who participated in the annual Singing Valentines promotion sponsored by the Music City Chorus in Nashville, TN.
Two of the Valentines songs sung for Dr. Reddy and his staff were Sweet and Lovely and The Tonya Song.


We invite you to take a moment to share the joy we experienced with Doug, No Green Bananas, and Dr. Reddy's staff and colleagues. Sweet and Lovely  The Tonya Song
