"Enlighten Your Ears - The Docs"

A new bold sound of rock from our very own town, College Station, introduces a modern, energetic style of music intertwined with that familiar, classic rock tone.

The Docs encompass all shades of rock, from alternative and grunge to 70’s rock. The four members fuse these different genres of rock together to create a timeless masterpiece. After seeing the Docs perform, a writer for The Loopscoop in Houston wrote, “Don’t take my earlier ‘Kings of Leon’ comment as pigeon-holing the band. Their music is much more adventurous than that. It has that same vigor, but allows each of the band mates to explore their instruments more.”

Each song that I have listened to by The Docs has made me feel distinct intense emotions. The music grasps your attention and your senses as if you can feel the rhythm of the music in your fingertips. The song, “Groove,” starts off with a smooth and edgy tone that progressively transitions to a hard rock vibe with passionate vocals. Especially in the track “Games,” it is impossible not to become engrossed with the instrumentals and vocals. Overall, with its use of depth and expression, the song releases you from your current frustrations, creating a relatable connection with the band.

The Docs have already performed in surrounding cities such as Austin and Houston with Black Pistol Fire, The Features, and Whiskey Myers, just to name a few. The Docs will be releasing their first EP this fall that will inspire listeners; the band can only grow from here. - Defacto Productions

"Loopster Live: The Features with The Live Lights and The Docs at Fitzgerald’s"

The show started the minute I walked in the door on Thursday night. The Docs had already said their hellos and were on their way into the first song while I was grabbing a beer from the bar. The first question popped into my head: Had I just walked into a surprise performance by Kings of Leon? That’s the world I have to accept as the current generation of rockers finds their way into a spotlight, they’ve been looking up to bands from my early adulthood.

The band from College Station played in front of a home crowd full of parents and friends. In fact, the exuberance of the spectators nearly outmatched the band of the night, The Features.

Don’t take my earlier “Kings of Leon” comment as pigeon holing the band. Their music is much more adventurous than that. It has that same vigor, but allows each of the band mates to explore their instruments more. Guitar solos pepper throughout the songs. Check their self-titled EP for a good sample of what I’m talking about. Download it while you’re at it.

Hopefully they’ll have a few Houston tour dates in the near future so you can check them out for yourself. It’s never too early to have another band to have on your radar and if “Rose” is any indication, they’re green dot deserves to be flashing.

The Docs ended up finishing their night with an impromptu encore demanded by the crowd. It was the first time I’ve heard “Free Bird!” yelled out in the audience in a long time. I’m going to blame that on one of the parents that were there for the show. Instead, the band jumped into a cover of “Jailhouse Rock” for we old and new fans.

A reading from the Book of Tombstone, 1:13:

And so it went that the ghost of Doc Holliday himself stumbled into central Texas and appeared before four starry-eyed boys with a holy mission: to accrue noise complaints and maybe do some resurrecting.

The famous outlaw first made his presence known to Jerod Justice in a basement open mic. Holliday inhabited the speakers and, in his best George Straight impression, sent Jerod on a pilgrimage to the sandy beaches of Country Music, margarita-in-hand.

Two towns over, Jeff Dolman opens his violin case, only to find his instrument replaced with heavy-gauge guitar strings and a handle of what the Russians refer to as “water.” It was easily the rowdiest violin recital in Texas history, and in some parts, he still answers to “Jeff The Baptist.”

Meanwhile, Holliday’s ghost appears to brothers-in-punk Ryan Brownlow and Dalton Weis in the midst of a 10-deep backyard moshpit, commanding them to depart from the land of Hardcore. As if on cue, a local punk unwittingly walks under a nearby mosquisto zapper and the kid’s beeswaxed mohawk catches aflame. They took it as a sign.

And thus the “The Wicked River Band” was created, and it was good, amen. But after a year of gigging, sharpening their skills, and wandering the red-dirt desert of Country, our four young heroes happened upon the humble church of Southern Rock. They held council with Pastor Jack White and Preacher Robert Plant, and thenceforth spread the gospel of Rock & Roll as “The Docs” (as a nod to Mister Holliday), sermonizing with their own rowdy brand of experimental, yet undeniably classic, rock and roll. 

Since then, The Docs have released a self-produced demo and their debut LP “Audacious”; shared stages with Bob Schneider, Black Pistol Fire, Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights, Whiskey Myers, Quiet Company, Driver Friendly, The Weeks, Saving Abel, Sol Cat,  and countless other nationally-acclaimed acts; rocked huge festivals such as the Pecan Street Festival, Rock The Republic, Firefest, and Chilifest; and resurrected rock music with their honest intensity and pure grade, 100% American heart.

In short, The Docs go where they are called, giving dance lessons to the dead and teaching us living folk how to die loud, proud, and with our boots on - the way Doc would have it. Amen.
