Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: Dr. Badlove and the Remedies / Doc-tor Bad Love and the Re-me-dees
Recommended if you like: It’s a little like Jamiroquai, or if Sean Paul was the singer of the Black Eyed Peas while they jammed with RDGLDGRN
Story behind your band/artist name: The say as an artist you should write about what you know, which is how the name 'Dr. Bad Love' popped out. We tried it on and it fitted like a glove... the 'and the Remedies' part of our name sums up the playful side of our band. It sort of leaves of open the questions ‘which one of you is the doctor?’ and ‘what is the remedy for Bad Love?’
Band Members: Chris (Chris B), lead vocal and MC / Phil, drums and percussion, vocals / Barry, Guitar, Bass, Synth, vocals
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC? Chris and Phil were both born and raised in DC and Bethesda, respectively. Barry is from the UK but has lived in DC 13 years.. Dr. Badlove was born in Adams Morgan but our current base is in North Capitol.
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area Chris and Barrie were involved in the DC music scene for several years, but didn't meet through music - we met because Chris crashed one of Barrie's house parties.
Chris and Barrie met Phil on Craigslist. Experience told us to exercise a lot of caution when finding musical or romantic partners on Craigslist, but we ended up as friends and roommates.
Not using acoustic drums or amps, we thought we would be able to get away with rehearsing at one another’s homes. In reality our singing is still so loud we get called in as a domestic.
Anything else we should know, or you want to share? As a band, Dr. Badlove is always working to go to the next level - musically and in our performances. We're still a relatively new act, so expect lots of change and new stuff with every show. Something unique we are working on is developing our live show to transition seamlessly between our songs - more like a DJ experience. We're also always looking for ways to incorporate more dance and theatre into our shows.
