Lounge Doctors define their style as #FolkrockJazz, a blend of the Laurel Canyon sound (Byrds, Buffalo Springfield) and Memphis Soul (Stax, Volt, Booker T & the MGs). Hal brings the folk rock (guitar) and Michael brings the soul (keyboard).
A good example is Lounge Doctors cover of In The Waiting Line. It keeps the chill of the Zero 7 original, but adds a 70’s edge. The revolution will not be televised.
As a performing band, Lounge Doctors play in configurations of 2 – 5+ musicians. Michael & Hal have been playing together as a duo in bars and clubs since 2014. As a power trio, the Doctors play with drummers including Lars Hartmann, Ed Butler and Bob Jackson. The LDs debuted their 5 piece band at Blue Note Grill in Durham just recently with Clayton Ware on Guitar and Mysti Mayhem on vocals.
