Apres Ski in Crested Butte

Doctor Robert played Beatles music to a packed house at Butte 66 on Saturday. This was the best show and the most fun we’ve had playing apres ski at Crested Butte Mountain Resort. Thanks to all the visitors and locals who came out in masses for our first hometown performance in five months. This show brought out several rare songs, both for Doctor Robert and The Beatles, such as “Old Brown Shoe,” “Piggies,” “Think for Yourself,” “The Word,” and “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” just to name a few. Here are some recordings from the afternoon:

You Can’t Do That
Think For Yourself — The Word
Tell Me Why
Rocky Raccoon
Piggies
The Night Before
Old Brown Shoe
Lady Madonna
Come Together
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Back in the USSR — I’ve Got a Feeling
It Won’t Be Long
If I Needed Someone — Run For Your Life
I Want You (She’s So Heavy)
Glass Onion — Ob La Di Ob La Da
Get Back
Day Tripper

Doctor Robert will be performing New Year’s Eve at The Mount Princeton Hot Springs, with Beatles music staring at 9:00. We look forward to a great end to 2012 and another exciting year in 2013. Cheers to everyone that has come out to see Doctor Robert, The Beatles Tribute from Crested Butte, Colorado.

Two Years of Doctor Robert

Our first official gig, DoctoberFest on 10/16/10 at Rainbow Park in Crested Butte.

Our first official gig, DoctoberFest on 10/16/10 in Rainbow Park in Crested Butte.

October marked the official two-year anniversary of Doctor Robert as a full band, and 101 songs into the project, we’re all as enthused as we were at the beginning (if not more)! The music of the Beatles is so diverse, so complex, and so inspiring we can’t wait to get into more.

The Doctor Robert Beatles tribute band has truly been an amazing experience. We can honestly say there hasn’t been a gig where people didn’t approach us to say how much they enjoyed the show. We’ve met some great people, learned a ton, and seen a lot. There have been conga lines, circle dancing, two stepping, breakdance moves, raised-arm tunnels, some crazy costumes, and even a somersault and a worm on the dance floor. There have been people in wheelchairs and walkers, toddlers wearing nothing but diapers, newlyweds, birthday celebrants, and basically just folks of every age, size and background dancing and purely enjoying this music. Doctor Robert has been hired to play fundraisers for causes as varied as a children’s museum to a college wrestling team. We’ve played venues from dive bars to the Museum of Natural History and Science in Denver. We’ve performed for amazing couples for their weddings throughout Colorado. We’ve survived colds, laryngitis, allergies, a trailer tire blowout, a family tragedy, some pretty interesting sleeping arrangements, a chopped-off fingertip, salmonella, and more to still play shows that elicit nothing but compliments. We’ve all tried our hand at instruments we’d never really played, harmonies we weren’t sure we could master…learning all the while!

We are extremely grateful to everyone who has come out to support the Doctor Robert project, and we look forward to more good times to come. Since the Beatles only toured until 1966 (stopping well before they’d written much of their catalogue) we’re honored to do our part in keeping this music alive, and share it with y’all! As always, THANK YOU!

All the best,
Doctor Robert
