Best bluegrass we've heard in a long time!

We were absolutely, without a doubt, blown away by Dr. Wells Medicine Show!! We could not have chosen a better band for our reception! Several guests comment on how good the band was,"Where did you find these guys? They are amazing!!!" was uttered many times. They are so talented and we had so much fun. If you haven't seen Dr. Wells Medicine Show and you like bluegrass, then you are doing yourself a disservice - find them, experience the music, and leave smiling :) - Thank you, Darrald and the rest of the band for making our day very special. We will be seeking out your shows. You have huge fans in Raeford!

Good entertainment

D.R. Wells Medicine Show performed for COJO 2013 at Laurel Lakes Campground located in Salemburg, NC. There was excellent communication leading up to the show date. The band was punctual and all the members friendly. The band brought a following of fans and preformed as professionals on stage. I would highly recommend this band for Bluegrass entertainment. They will definitely be invited back to our next event.

I highly recommend D.R. Wells Medicine Show! They played at a memorial service for my uncle and they did an outstanding job. The music brought us so much comfort at such a difficult time for our family.

Wow, what a show!!! Great people and Super Music!

D. R Wells are professionals and were able to set up with little help from us. They played a wide variety of music and event told a few "tall tales"! My only regret is that we had no dance floor!

Thank you Bill. We truly enjoy playing for the residents.

A Blessing for our church

We had a great worship service with D.R. Wells and crew today. They were on time, sounded good and it was a blessing to worship Jesus with them!

These guys were great!

D.R. Wells Medicine Show played at my party over Memorial Day weekend and the music was great. I will definitely have them play at my next party. I would recommend this band for any Bluegrass or Gospel fan. They showed up on time, played for longer than expected, and were reasonably priced. All of my guest commented on how great the entertainment was and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. A special thanks to Bob Phillips for scheduling the event for me.

Thanks so much for playing at my Dad's 50th Birthday. You guys really made the party special and so much fun. Couldn't have asked for a nicer bunch of musicians to have. We will definitely have you play for us again as soon as we find an excuse for a party

D.R. Wells Medicine Show

Formed by Darrald Wells (Lead Guitar) & Robert Phillips (Mandolin) in 2011 as their small contribution in the preservation of our Southern bluegrass and gospel heritage. Darrald and Robert both grew up listening to bluegrass on Saturday night and sitting on a hard church pew listening to the Preacher come Sunday morning. To them, bluegrass and gospel is tightly intertwined and is more than just music. It is indeed a reflection of our heritage, where the struggles, hopes, and happiness of everyday life is put into song. Sharing Darrald’s and Robert’s love for traditional bluegrass & gospel are three very talented individuals; Sheila Marshall (Fiddle), and the father and son team of Bobby Carpenter (Banjo), and Jamie Carpenter (Bass). The roots of bluegrass and gospel run deep in Sheila, Bobby, and Jamie. Together they will mix a remedy that is guaranteed to warm your heart with memories and get your foot a tapping. Good medicine for an ailing soul, that’s why they call themselves the Medicine Show.
