USA, 1969…The country swears in its 37th President. Elvis Presley makes a welcome comeback. The first man walks on the moon. The Beatles do their last live performance, and theRolling Stones give a free concert that turns violent and symbolises for many the endof the 60s.
Somewhere during that tumultuous watershed year, two seasoned musicians from the deep southern states of Mississippi andAlabama made their way up to New Jersey where they happenedupon a considerably younger singer-guitarist. The three hit it offimmediately and with the inclusion of two more members began playing together in the loud, rough, frequentlydangerous nightclubs in Union City.
The hand-drawn poster read “Dr Hook and The Medicine Show – Tonic for the Soul” and it took a mixture of humour, luck and a natural feelfor many different types of music from standards and rock’n’roll to country andcontemporary pop to keep all those souls entertained.
In the years to follow, the group’s recordings brought them multiple international chart successes for which they were awarded 60 Gold and Platinumsingles and albums, and their unique concert performances branded them a toptouring act all over the world.
Despite the band having gone through personnel changes over the last half a century, founding member and original lead vocalist Dennis Locorriere has made it his goal to keep the music and spirit ofDr Hook alive and well. The talented, charismatic frontman with his brilliant group has been bringing that unmistakable sound to sold out audiences allaround the world.
Now to celebrate five decades of timeless music, the band is announcing their 50th anniversary tour that will cover their rich musical history from the biggest hits to album favourites – a musical event not to be missed!
