1-dr-hookDr. Hook & the Medicine Show, shortened in 1975 to Dr. Hook, was an American rock band, formed around Union City, New Jersey. They enjoyed considerable commercial success in the 1970s with hit singles including “Sylvia’s Mother,” “The Cover of Rolling Stone,” “Sharing the Night Together,” “A Little Bit More” and “When You’re in Love with a Beautiful Woman.” In addition to their own material, Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show performed songs written by the poet Shel Silverstein.

The band had eight years of regular chart hits, in both the U.S. (where their music was played on top-40, easy listening and, to a lesser extent, country music outlets) and throughout the English-speaking world, including Canada, Australia and the UK. Their music spanned several genres, mostly novelty songs and acoustic ballads in their early years; their greatest success came with their later material, mostly consisting of disco-influenced soft rock, which the band recorded under the shortened name Dr. Hook.

After years out of the limelight, Dr HOOK™ is now back on the road, fronted by Dennis Locorriere, the man who originally sang all the songs you remember and still love, presented in an evening of not only great music, but one that also brings to audiences all the fun and humor that was synonymous with the name DR HOOK.

And through all these years, I’ve never once heard them play “Stairway” or “Freebird”, which is good, since those aren’t permitted here.
