Biography

The groovedoctors - raw rockin' R&B at it's absolute best. The Docs boast one of the neatest rhythm sections around. Bassman Fergie Fulton was a member of Bank's Best of Blues winners Booze 'n' Blooze, while drummer John Butters was the driving force behind one of East Anglia's most successful blues acts, The Mean Red Spiders. Together they motor!

Guitarist Tim Ainslie is critically acclaimed as one of the finest blues players on the scene. His unique style is stamped firmly on "Los Earlos", his debut recording with the band. Harmonica/Vocalist Luke Arnold is the real deal - a true honours graduate from the University of Little Walter, specialist subject: pure blues tone.

Successful UK festival appearances at Colne, Burnley, Farnham, Brentwood & Banbury along with a busy schedule of gigs in both the UK & Europe have not stopped the band continuing to write some of the most original blues material around, which features strongly on their second CD, " Los Earlos", released in May 2001. "Tequila & Pils" from this album was featured on Blues in Britain magazines' Best of British Blues CD to be released in December 2002.

The first CD "Crazy Mixed up World" was voted best CD of 1999 by BBC radio's Stephen Foster and was showcased in a live session recorded for BBC Radio 2's Paul Jones Show in December 1999."Los Earlos" was showcased in a further live session for the same programme broadcast in April 2002.

" Simply one of the most enjoyable live prospects out there at the moment." Tim Aves - Blues Matters"

"Sensational - justified on this showing. This is a four piece playing goodrockin' blues" - Farnham Blues Festival review - Blueprint

" I can't help thinking that this is just the stuff to bring blues to a new generation of fans. It's smart, on the ball, musically sound, lyrically just spot on, and completely unpretentious in presentation - not a cobweb in sight! On this form I can't recommend them highly enough." - Hilary Drysdale - Blues in Britain
