Noise Ordinance Presents
Doctor Rick EP Release Party
Saturday, September 23, 2017
Bar & Restaurant: 5:00pm
Forged in the dimly-lit, beer-soaked bowels of Burlington, VT’s basement scene, Doctor Rick was put here for one reason: to help you get your fix. Brennan Kensey (Bass, Vocals) and Zach Santarsiero (Drums, Vocals) consistently hold down an infectiously groovy rhythm section, casually sprinkling in improvised solos while constantly pushing the energy higher. Patrick Callahan (Rhythm Guitar, Lead Vocals) keeps listeners on track with catchy, super-relatable lyrics that will be stuck in your head days after a show, all while trading licks with the Big Bad Booty Daddy himself, (E)Rick Soszynski (Lead Guitar), who shreds through solos and melodies with effortless levity.
Starting out as UVM students in 2015, Doctor Rick has been honing their craft up in VT for 2 years now, playing frequently at places like Nectar’s and Higher Ground. These guys work hard to combine everyone’s favorite aspects of blues rock, funk, and bluegrass into a cocktail delivered with surgical precision, straight to the brain. Now operating on a stage near you, dishing out blistering dueling guitar riffs backed by bombastic drum fills and tone-perfect bass bombs, the Doctor has a fix for whatever ails you. Need your face melted? Come on down. Wanna dance yourself outta your shoes? Stop by. These guys are just what the Doctor ordered. No appointment necessary.
The Wormdogs are a knee slapping, swamp picking, sun-stanky foursome from Burlington, Vermont featuring members of Squimley & The Woolens + Doctor Rick.
