The Doctors are in...

And their prescription of choice is a proverbial hair-of-the-dog, one-two punch. You know, treat the ailment with a dose of cure by the same name.

"It's simple. If you're in a funk, well ya gotta go and get the funk. It'll fix you straight up," says Dr Walter Hemingway, medical chief of staff for The Root Doctors, South Carolina's preeminent feel-good clinic. "Music - funky music- is the remedy, man."

Combine heaping portions of bass, rhythm guitar and brass with uniquely hip, feel-good grooves and you have the beginnings of a healing party that is safe to administer in massive doses to any member of the family, ages 8 to 80.

Whenever the band performs, it never disappoints, always keeping an emphasis oh having fun and making fans happy.

"Creating new music remains high on our agenda, but we also will continue to perform our favorite class dance and party tunes. we enjoy them as much as the fans do," Hemingway said. "our fans have been phenomenal, and The Doctors always have been about pleasing a crowd."

Surprise Birthday Party

Wow, what an amazing night!  The surprise party for my husband Casey was spectacular, with the Root Doctors being the 2nd of the surprises!  


Once again, they exceeded all expectations!  They are such a personable group of people, to boot - so easy and ready to talk with.  I really feel they were enjoying the spectacle as much as all of us!  I think my little 2 year old granddaughter and I stayed up on stage almost the entire time.  I know I was shocked when it was suddenly 10:30 and time to wrap up!

We just have to keep the RDs in the family, and keep having parties so we can have them play!  They may just become the extended family go-to band for weddings too!

Thank you again for all of your help, and your always quick response to my calls and questions!

Best band ever!

I had high hopes after listening to their samples, but the Root Doctors blew my expectations out of the water. They had great energy and were absolutely fabulous. We had the best time and our guests did as well. Our guests were chanting for an encore at the end of the night!! They are a talented group and I hope I have another chance to see them! Do yourself a favor and book them ASAP!
