DNR - Free Concert

Date/Time

Aug 16, 2013
08:00 PM until 09:30 PM

Description

Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts presents:

The almost all-physician band plays an infectious mix of heart-stopping music: Rock, Motown, oldies, and contemporary. DNR was originally formed in 2002, when a group of 4 musically inclined physicians got together in a friend’s garage to play rock music.

It was a way of unwinding at the end of a hectic day at the office. Initially, the band was comprised of 2 rhythm guitars, keyboard, and drums. Slowly individual musicians were added and the band gradually evolved into its current 8 member status but has remained true to its classic rock ’n roll roots. Because many of the band members are doctors by day and musicians at night, the name “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR) appealed to our macabre sense of humor.

The band eventually moved beyond the garage and now practices at a fabric warehouse where the acoustics are wonderful for making music. The band focuses on danceable vintage tunes from the ‘60s and ’70’s, playing the music of such artists as Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, Van Morrison and the Beatles. Occasionally rock sounds of the 80’s and 90’s and classic jazz standards work their way into our repertoire.
