The Slop Stomp
Dr. Boogie
"In this era of canned pop and one-hit wonders, it's harder and harder to find new bands that embody the true spirit of rock... n' roll. Suddenly, roaring out of Los Angeles, CA comes Dr. Boogie - a four piece powerhouse. Building on the foundation of seminal groups like the New York Dolls, Dead Boys, Flamin' Groovies, Rolling Stones, and Chuck Berry while adding their own twist to songwriting. With instant classics like "Get Back To New York City" and "Down This Road", Dr. Boogie has already captured the attention of Los Angeles taste-makers and have gained huge momentum in the underground rock n' roll scene from their home town of Los Angeles to countries overseas. Their songs are filled with infectious melodies belted out at full volume and soaked in enough attitude and moxy to keep pace with the raunchy guitar riffs littered throughout, and a rhythm section that moves like a locomotive headed straight for your gut. Since debuting in Oct 2014, they've built a loyal following in the club scene, recorded and released their first EP (available on Dead Beat Records, iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby), been featured by legendary DJ Rodney Bingenheimer on his KROQ radio show Rodney On The Roq, received airplay on the Sirius XM radio station "Little Steven's Underground Garage" by DJ Genya Ravan for her show "Goldie's Garage", as well as being invited by KXLU 88.9FM to perform live on their weekly broadcast. Consisting of singer/guitarist Chris P., guitarist Dustin James, bassist Jeff Turpin and drummer Luis Herrera, they are a well-oiled machine, pumping out irresistible grooves to fans hungry for high energy rock n' roll. Current plans include the release of their debut full-length album (Fall 2015 on Dead Beat Records, Cleveland OH), a single release (Fall 2015 on White Zoo Records, Italy), a few national tours, and some gigs overseas. Armed with strong performances, and bursting with attitude, this is one band that is carving out its own place in today's music world. Keep your eyes peeled and you ears to the ground for Los Angeles' newest musical provocateurs." - Bill Cutler

"I can't really find anything to not like about these guys... Dr. Boogie are blazing their own smoky trail of snarling guitars, whorehouse pianos and honky tonkin' harmonicas that impresses upon first listen." - Veglam, Anguish Young

"Talk about chemistry - this band is like the lab accident that gave The Flash his superpowers." - Sef Ashby, The Dead Notes
