Dr Butlers Acoustic Band are a travelling troupe of musicological minstrels, peddling the good Doctors unique good-time tonic to all four corners of the land. Performing a secret combination of early blues and jazz forms, a sprinkle of ragtime, a dash of hot swing, the essence of sweet spiritual gospel music, a pinch of the oldest of old-timey melodies and a teaspoon of Vaudevillian and Music Hall showoffery. All whisked together with the most esoteric of folk rhythms! Phew.
The result is a morally good music with tones of joy and fulfilment! They are a fantastic band to watch, they take you right back to a time of merriment, and by gone days! For people who don’t know the music, they cant help but boogie to it! Its simply uplifting and heart warming!
As the band would say, this harmonic concoction is a natural aid to titillation and when taken as directed, it is a guaranteed restorer of vitality, vim and vigour.
Dr Butlers Acoustic Band will present to you their good time rags and reels, show stoppers and sight stealers; music for foot stomping and toe tickling that joins hearts with flesh whilst invigorating the thinking mind. They stand before you as harbingers of gentility, bearers of ingenuity, possessors of conviviality, enhancers and champions of upright and virtuous behaviour and caretakers of chivalric honour.
So these guys are a great, brilliant and a lively group of the finest musicians, who perform a mixture of blues, gospel blues, folk, jazz, old-time music, old-timey poetry, ragtime and more. They are the ideal acoustic band or themed act for Beer Festival entertainment, outdoor event entertainment, and if you have an “old time, old age” theme party to organise, this band would be the perfect band to hire! People dance, clap and party along to this fantastic upbeat and merry music. Guaranteed to bring smiles and joy all round!
