Doctor, Doctor is a hard rock power trio playing live and recording out of the Oakland / SF area of California. Its sound is diverse, influenced mostly by prog-, art-, and arena-rock bands such as Muse, Tool, Coheed and Cambria, and Journey, with a few pop, jazz, and EDM notes also sneaking in.
The band started as a duo in early 2020, when Alex Smoligovets and Adrian Morrison picked up some old instruments and started jamming together under a tree during the COVID-19 pandemic. After cutting their teeth on covers of such classics as Dire Straits’ The Sultans of Swing, Don Henley’s Dirty Laundry, and… the Backstreet Boys’ Everybody at gigs around the East Bay, the guys started collaborating on their first original record, Panacea, a prog-rock-influenced EP that came out in September 2021 on all major streaming platforms.
In 2022, following a series of successful shows around the Bay Area, the duo started working on their next release, Second Opinion, which sees the band lean harder into the progressive elements of their sound. They were also joined by Karl Pfeiffer on drums, who brings hard hits and an energy that Rob the Robot, their stage iPad, just doesn’t quite match. Look out for Second Opinion on all the streaming apps at the turn of 2022-23.
