Dr. Roberts Band group portrait

Summer Kick-off Party
Friday May 22
DOCTOR ROBERT   - DONE -

Beatles tribute band

Back for the third year in a row, Doctor Robert is a new generation of Beatles tribute bands, committed to the accurate reproduction of over 100 songs of The Beatles' repertoire. Their high-energy shows are full of Beatles magic, as Casey Falter, Karen Janssen, Ben Wright, and Kevin Reinert love the challenge of re-creating even the most demanding musical compositions. It's all about the music and the infectious energy created when Beatles fans come together to listen to this great Crested Butte-based band.

excerpts from Glenwood Caverns' Doctor Robert interview:

     Doctor Robert gets their name from a slightly lesser-known Beatles track: the song "Doctor Robert" refers to John Lennon's "special" doctor..."

     ...last summer they were chosen to open the 1st Annual "Big Denver BBQ" on the 16th Street Mall in Denver.

     "It's fantastic to see folks of all ages appreciating our take on this awesome catalogue of music," says Wright. "After every show, we get to hear great memories or stories about the music, and the people we meet are so kind and such passionate live music fans."
