The band formed in 2011 by their mutual love for the sequined singing bosom of Dolly Parton. They deliver foot stomping, rhinestone infused fun with a unique blend of glitter, glamour, and Rock and Roll. No stuffed bra’s or impressions needed, just loads of amazing tunes created by one of the greatest performers to ever live.
Doll parts has been actively spreading the gospel of Dolly Parton to venues throughout the east coast. Since Dolly doesn't hold back, they don’t either! Make no mistake they “BRING THE Y'ALL, Y’ALL!”
It is impossible to leave a Doll Parts show without a smile on your face. I've seen them perform a hand full of times the last couple of years and I never leave unsatisfied. I recently just booked them for an event I'm throwing for this very reason. They bring such a wonderful and bubbly energy to every performance and it's exactly what we need to close out our event.
What could be more awesome than a Brooklyn-rooted Dolly Parton cover band? Their name alone could make me smile for days. I've seen Doll Parts play dozens of times around the city and am always telling similarly-minded music fans that they HAVE to check them out. So I was psyched to learn that they were available to play at my wedding reception. If "Nine to Five" doesn't get your friends on to the dance floor, it's possible you need more fun friends. ;) Ukes, drums, guitar, amazing vocals! Thanks, Doll Parts, for bringing the party to our big day.
Doll Parts is a fantastic band!!! Before I saw them, I remembered listening to Dolly Parton on her TV show when I was a kid, but really had no sense of how many great songs she has written. Doll Parts brings Dolly Parton to life and makes her music accessible to anyone, no matter what genre you prefer and even if you don't like country. With three rich voices that blend/harmonize/duet beautifully and accomplished musicians, Doll Parts puts on a terrific, lively show that leaves you wanting more (and really, I've gone to every show I could since I made it to my first one). Doll Parts' music is melodious, spirited, catchy and generally upbeat. The band does a great job of mixing classics with lesser known gems to create a well-rounded experience. Its music and presence are infectious and maintain that wonderful balance of optimism and worldliness present in Dolly Parton's music and attitude. Dolly might not like me saying this, but I think Doll Parts brings new life to her music and enriches it with the band's innovative approach.
Doll Parts is pure fun. They take their sincere love of Dolly Parton and her music and create a show joyous, raucous, and melodious. The music ranges from classic Dolly to songs she penned for other artists and they put their own special spin and arrangement into each tune. The fun they're having on stage is palpable and infectious. They're a sure hit for any party or event where people want to cut loose and have a good time.
I have been a fan of Doll Parts for a long time, and I was completely thrilled when they were available to play at my wedding on very short notice. Communication was easy and straightforward, they arrived early to set up and do a sound check, they looked great (which is important since they are in my wedding photos!), and the performance?? What an incredible, energy-filled show they put on, and even customized some songs, and fit in a funny speech about us! It was exactly what we were looking for - everybody got up and danced! I have such great memories of that day, and they made it extra-special! I LOVE YOU DOLL PARTS!

What to Expect
Doll Parts will get everyone to the dance floor! We sing all of Dolly's hits including: Jolene, Islands in the Stream and 9-5 but we also do her lesser known songs and covers of her covers including Bon Jovi's Lay your Hands on me. There is something for everyone. We've played weddings, birthday parties, concert venues and more!
Acknowledging the reality that no one performer could possibly “cover” Dolly Parton, Doll Parts is an entire band dedicated to the music of Tennessee’s Iron Butterfly. Though billed as “Brooklyn’s Premier Dolly Parton cover band,” Doll Parts is not some hipster-ish exercise in irony, but an earthy and talented quartet of true artists. Rather than simply singing songs karaoke-style, they pay full homage to the country and bluegrass roots of Parton hits like “I Feel the Blues Moving In,” “Jolene” and “Please Don’t Stop Loving Me.” Perfect for Parton purists and newbies to her Smokey Mountain sound, Doll Parts captures the spirit of a true musical genius in inventive ways, incorporating sophisticated harmonies and haunting instrumentals.
Additional Booking Notes
We are a 4 piece band but can add a full horn section and piano if you would like. For our 4 person set up we need 3 vocal mics, bass amp, guitar amp and a PA to plug into. We would love a full drum kit but if you pay the cab fare we can bring the drums.
