ootfinalRoll out the red carpet……THE DOCTOR is in… “Doc Hollywood” that is. Coming out of Delaware this retro-modern party rock band plays all over from South Maryland to this side of PA, consisting of 6 players, including female and male fronts, Lauren Clapper & Matt “The Cannonball” Cannon. Two guitarists, Brian “Shep” Shepherd, & Fran Lemon, Joby Parendier on bass & Ken Mondillo on drums. Everyone sings back-ups & lead keeping their songs new and fresh. This band covers artists from Pink & Lady GaGa to the Black Eyed Peas & Theory of A Dead Man to Gavin DeGraw and more! And that’s not all Doc Hollywood takes its name to the limit doing themed events like Toga Parties, Pajama Parties & Sexy Black Dress Parties. “We’re definitely not a band that can stay in one place the whole night!”, Shep explains. “We tend to get in the crowd and have fun! We love to play and meet new people! When you come to see Doc Hollywood, you will let go and leave your problems at the door!”

This band puts on one hell of show, unpredictable, you never know when they will storm the stage wearing crazy hats, sunglasses & wigs and they do trivia questions for give-a-ways like t-shirts and CD’s and even free drinks & other fun stuff. They also do a block of 80’s songs in the middle of their show causing their audience to sing-a-long to hits like “Pour Some Sugar On Me” & “Shook Me All Night Long” geared to get everyone into the party atmosphere!

“With hard work and dedication, Doc Hollywood has continued its vitality on the cover band scene. “There is nothing like the transfer of energy at a “live show”. If the band and the fans can have this engaging interaction, the show is a success!”, says Shep. You can check out Doc Hollywood at one of your favorite bars in your area. Look for them on Jan 9th at Catherine Rooneys in Wilmington, DE. Doc Hollywood is one band to watch out for in 2010!
