Biography

Dr. Will uses too much sugar and alcohol ... Appropriately so: Because of this, on his latest album, Itching Again, you can experience the dirty streets, the melancholic smell of whiskey-drained nights – the life of pirates, drunks and whores!

Dr. Will spent the first half of the 90's in London, recording and producing Indie Bands as well as touring Europe with his Blues Rock trio The Shout. By the end of the 90's, after residencing in Louisiana and an extensive interchange with the local musicians, Dr. Will brought the original New Orleans Rhythm 'n' Blues to Europe. In addition to his growly Blues voice, the visual component became a more and more important element of his shows.

He now presents self-penned songs that break the confines of Blues, being compared to the likes of G. Love or Tom Waits. Concurrently Dr. Will's commitment to a long tradition of storytelling adds to the uniqueness of his song arrangements.

When Dr. Will and his band The Wizards enter the stage, pure shindig is being celebrated: Clanking megaphone and distorted banjo meet mannequin, Voodoo Priest and Radio DJ are working their way around bedside lamps and an old telephone. This isn't just your old Blues Rock Band fiddling away endlessly, it's a theatrical performance! The Wizards are a wild bunch of weird-headed, yet highly professional musicians. With their high-energy-playing they pimp the Blues back to life and revolutionize it at the same time. Dr. Will & The Wizards present a show full acoustic and visual surprises that will make you put your hands in the air and yell:
“Ooh, I like that Voodoo!”
