Thanks a million to Xavier Fane for these amazing photos taken of Doctor Robert, The Beatles Tribute. These were taken on August 5th, 2012, at the 40th annual Crested Butte Festival of the Arts. We had a great time finishing out the weekend of live entertainment, the third in a row for Doctor Robert that weekend. Check out Xavier’s photos at http://www.xavierfane.com/.
Doctor Robert, The Beatles Tribute from Crested Butte, Colorado, had it’s first three-night run since May this past weekend. Thanks to everyone that came out in Telluride, Lake City, and Del Norte to see some of their favorite Beatles music played by Dr. Robert. Though we were tested by some band members being “under the weather,” we rallied for three great shows and had a fun time despite the ailing voices. Not only were the shows a great time, but the road trip through southern Colorado was spectacular with all the aspen leaves changing to gold, red, and orange. What an amazing time of year to tour through the Colorado Rocky Mountains to play Beatles covers.
We started at the Telluride Conference Center on Thursday, playing an amazing room with some very enthusiastic dancers. We had our first “runner” who was making laps around the room, even sliding across the carpet with his socks on. Thanks to Tony with Cadence Hospitality for putting in all the effort for promoting this last-minute show. Thanks also to the event and wedding planners that made it out for the show, we’re lucky to be playing several Colorado weddings this year and next.
Friday night brought us back to Lake City to play our second show at The Depot Saloon. This night really proved that Lake City folks really don’t hold back, and love to have a good time. We played 55 songs from 8 to midnight, possibly the most songs we’ve played in any one night so far. Thanks to John at Depot Saloon for always being so accommodating, he’s a big part of this small town vibe and the packed house helped make us feel at home.
Saturday was our second show at Wildwood Sounds in Del Norte. Once again, a packed house brought great enthusiasm and appreciation for Doctor Robert’s Beatles Tribute. Stephen and Konnie sure have created a great little room in this small town for live music. As it turned out, this may have been the first time Wildwood had an entire room of dancers. It started with just a few early on, but by “I Saw Her Standing There” in our third set, the whole place was on their feet. Thanks again to everyone at Wildwood, we really appreciate the support.
Here’s a few video clips from Wildwood, sorry the camera angle got bumped and Ben on the drums isn’t very visible:
