BC’s most well-known and loved 6-piece dance band, DR STRANGELOVE has become a Vancouver music and entertainment icon over the past two decades.
They have managed to remain on the cutting edge of the city's live music scene by bouncing effortlessly between styles as distinctly different asThe Beatles to Lady Gaga. Their ability to constantly re-invent themselves musically to suit the tastes of the audience of “that " moment, stems from their deep desire and dedication to always be more than a live jukebox. As well, who you see on the website is who you get. No sub players, no noses in charts or throw together units here. Just the great original band that you hired.
DR.STRANGELOVE'S shows are highly audience interactive, always humorous and always fun! The band's vast and varied repertoire, as well as their two female and three male lead vocalists, gives them the confidence and ability to welcome audience requests often putting a very personal touch on an already great evening of entertainment and dancing. They are also not afraid to dive right into a song they've never actually played before, creating an energy that is contagious!
With many years of experience, this band of friends continues to light up the stages of Vancouver and beyond as the city’s musical ambassadors for numerous corporate, private and fundraising events.
