Dr. Joe is a piano rock and roll outfit out of Austin, Texas with the
southern groove of Leon Russell, the soulful howl of Ray Charles and the
raw chaos of Jack White. Frontman Joe Sparacino grew up playing gospel
piano in rural Kansas. In an attempt to recreate that elevated experience,
he drags a 300-pound upright piano to every show. He runs the piano through
distortion pedals and synthesizers to create sonic landscape that wholly
rejects genre, while constantly referencing his deep reverence for the
American tradition. What results is a joyful noise.
Fun fact about the band: Dr. Joe is actually a practicing dentist.
