"The Shock Doctors"

The Shock Doctors are really everything you want in a cover band for your venue… punctual, witty and talented. It’s not easy to find a group that can perform such a popular mix of danceable classic rock and pop to keep audiences interested all night long. I have definitely seen a spike in the number of people that come out when they are on the calendar. They are always my first call when I need a classic rock band to fill the night.

Simply put… The Shock Doctors rock!”

Recreating the Classics of Rock and Roll
In the age of the mp3, the iPod and the portable DJ, live music -- and those who perform it
on actual instruments -- is sadly a waning art form. Many have said
that real, pure rock and roll is dying, or even dead. Thankfully, there
are still veteran musicians out there that can dissect and re-animate
your favorite classic rock hits with surgical precision. Enter The Shock

The Shock Doctors are a multi-genre cover band
dedicated to keeping the classic rock hits of yesteryear alive. Formed
in 2009 in Orange County CA, this quartet of seasoned musicians
coalesced out of the common goal to pay proper tribute to the integrity
of the greatest rock and roll bands ever.

The Shock Doctors
not only bring radio hits alive for the “classic vinyl” crowd, they
introduce these timeless songs to a new generation – just as the Guitar
Hero and Rock Band video games have done in suburban homes nationwide.
Built upon the versatile, powerful vocals of Mark Hudkins, the subsonic mastery of bassist/backing vocalist Mark Severson, the guitar acrobatics of “fret doctor” Chris Bell, and the powerful backbeat of drummer Eric Awwesome. The Shock Doctors provide spirited
performances aimed at passionately and accurately recreating your
favorite hits. Just as most “tribute” bands faithfully perform the songs
of a single artist down to the greatest sonic detail, The Shock Doctors
take this musical scrutiny many steps further and apply it to dozens of
your favorite artists from the past four decades. Their repertoire is
wide, spanning from the 70's through the present, and covering not only
classic rock anthems, but New Wave, 80s hard rock/heavy metal, pop, 90s
alternative rock, and Top 40.

The Doctor will shock you now. With the electricity of Classic Rock and Roll.
