It’s been 30 years in the making for the funky, rock, blues band Spin Doctors. You for sure remember those huge 90’s hits “Two Princes,” “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” and “What Time Is It” to name a few, from their breakthrough album Pocket Full of Kryptonite, one of the 100 best-selling albums of the 1990s, selling more than ten million worldwide to be precise.
If you haven’t ever seen this band perform live, or if you may have overlooked them back then, now is your chance to give them another look and listen. There’s so much more than those aforementioned billboard hits, which by the way, they say, sound different every time…
You don’t even have to know the songs to enjoy the blues grit, soul, funky riffs and smooth moves that are undeniably Spin Doctors’.
With a few ups and downs along the way, (guitarist Eric Schenkman leaving for a while, and Frontman Chris Barron suffering from Vocal Chord Paralysis) they’re back and better than ever – touring, recording and having fun, together and on their own, each with successful solo projects.
However the foursome all agree, their first and foremost love is performing with each other, and it shows, on and off the stage, with a respect that stands the test of time and makes for one heck of a performance.
We caught up with them at their 30th anniversary show at Brooklyn Bowl in New York recently for a peek at what’s next for the Spin Doctors.
