Feeling a bit camera shy


The Doubletake Band—the name is new but this group has been real crowd pleasers for over three decades. Like the saying goes, you get out of something what you put into it. Well, these hard-singing, hard-playing rock and soulsters have been walking the walk since they began performing at junior high school proms. They’ve called the Maryland suburbs home and built a solid reputation as a group that delivers a solid sound every time out.

Members of The Doubletake Band perform a wide variety of music that brings back the good old days when even AM radio played “the good stuff.” Growing up in the 1960s, they were introduced to a wealth of musical influences—rock, soul, country and blues. As teenagers, they developed proficiency on their chosen instruments of guitar, bass and drums. They played high school dances, pool parties, backyard barbecues, and officer’s clubs or just about anywhere that good rock and roll and soul music was appreciated. Eventually they were performing in nightclubs, on cruises, at outdoor festivals, touring the East Coast and getting involved in studio recording projects.

While bands come and go and musical tastes change, The Doubletake Band has remained true to their roots of rock and soul. That’s what they grew up listening to—the Beatles, Chuck Berry, Elvis, Wilson Pickett, James Brown and Creedence Clearwater Revival. This is classic baby boomer music that’s in demand today as much as ever and will never go out of style. There are no electronic enhancements or canned instrumental tracks used in their live performances. What you see is what you get. And that’s why The Doubletake Band is the real deal.

If you’re a child of the 60s, they play the soundtrack of your generation. Their musical cooking has ingredients sprinkled with a touch of rock; a dash of blues, with some country, and
soul baked in.

The Doubletake Band is just like the name sounds. After hearing them, you’ll want more. Once is never enough! Check out their latest CD that features their versions of rock and soul classics that ably demonstrates that like a fine wine, some music does get better with age!
Members of TDB
Buddy Shoop—Guitars, bass, vocals. Whether it’s singing a soulful ballad or belting out a raucous rocker, Buddy vocals can rise to the occasion. The same goes for his dexterous string bending ability. Strapping on either his Les Paul or Fender Stratocaster, Buddy wails with a smooth fluidity that turns heads and gets feet moving. Ron Smith—Guitars, bass, vocals. Don’t let his reserved nature fool you. Underneath that shy exterior beats the heart of a true rocker. Just watch those magic fingers fly on his Ibanez and you’ll hear why we call him “Mr. Versatility.”

Steve Parezo—Drums, vocals. Known for his impressive heavy-hitting style, Steve pounds out a driving beat from behind his vintage five-piece Ludwig kit. He sets the pace with a cadence that’s hard to miss.
