Lounge Doctors is an acoustic duo of piano and guitar – Michael Pelz Sherman on piano and Hal Goodtree on guitar.

Some people say we’re a rock band. Others call us a blues band. If there’s an acoustic piano involved, we’re a jazz band. Some pick up on our fondness for the 60’s and call us a British Invasion Band with a Soul twist. When our freak flag flies, we’re a folk rock band, or even a psychedelic band (late shows only). We’ve been called an acoustic duo, unplugged and jazz-rock. We’ve been known to give a nod in the direction of grunge, western swing, alternative and power pop.

Whatever you call us, we like to entertain and surprise with our original take on the notion of a cover band.
