Doug Norwine Named to Board of Advisors for Texas Musician's Museum!

DALLAS, TEXAS: Doug Norwine, Director of Celebrity, Entertainment and Music Memorabilia for Heritage Galleries & Auctioneers (HGA), has been named to the Advisory Board of the Texas Musician's Museum, located in Grapevine, Texas.

"This is a great honor," said Norwine. "The mission of the Texas Musician's Museum is to showcase the contributions of Texans to music around the world through interactive displays, concerts, educational programs, seminars and its extensive collection and archives. The museum will be the premier conservatory and collection of Texas music memorabilia in the world, and I'm proud to be associated with it."

As a member of the Advisory Board, Norwine will help guide the museum in expansion, business direction, and acquisition, in an effort to advance the museum's goals and missions.

Norwine, a former Los Angeles studio musician, boasts an impressive resumé of musical achievements, including his stint as saxophone player for Lisa Simpson and her mentor "Bleeding Gums" Murphy on FOX's hit TV show, The Simpsons. More recently, Doug was the driving force behind the sale of the Johnny Carson microphone, which Heritage auctioned in April, 2005 for a record-setting $50,787.
