Dr Theopolis - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Dr Theopolis
From the banks of the mighty Williamette River comes Dr. Theopolis, Portland, Oregon's best band. Or at least we think so....and who better to judge than us?

Described by the Oregonian as "somewhere between the wacky funk of Parliament, the old school soul of the Ohio Players and modern rap", the Dr. is quickly overtaking bad weather as Oregon's most infamous commodity. Delicious? A tasty morsel indeed. What Zaphod Beeblebrox was to Intergalactic alcoholism Dr. Theopolis is to gettin' down. Thats just how we roll.

The group consists of 12 Portland musicians whose past or current projects include The Decemberists (Kill Rock Stars), The American Girls (Trauma Records), The Blue Cranes, Triclops Organ Trio, Lael Alderman (Geffen Records) and Ezra Holbrook (Capitol Records) as well as Little Sue, Jeremy Wilson, Fistful of Cash, Rollie Tussing and many more of the northwest's finest.

The Dr. has played events like the Bite of Portland, Hoodfest, North by Northwest and the Portland Trailblazers halftime shows and has shared a stage with Fishbone, Calobo, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, De La Soul, Death Cab For Cutie, The Blind Boys of Alabama and some naked guy that got tackled by security (true story). Musical credentials and gratuitous nudity aside, the band has earned a loyal Northwest following with it's high energy live performances, kick ass songwriting and massive sex appeal. I swear I'm not in the band. Yes I am.

The Dr. has released 2 full length albums, "The Voice Of The Future" (2002) and "Astronomical" (2004). Both were met with rave reviews including an "A" grade from the Oregonian and In Music We Trust as well as a nomination for best hip-hop record from JustPlainFolks.com. With plans for extensive procrastination on the horizon, look for the band to continue its rise toward world domination, fuel conservation and a Trump-free nation. As a wise man once said....wham, bam then slam some ham. Thanks for your support.
