Coming off of a year of touring in celebrating their 30th anniversary, ’90s jam band scene OGs the Spin Doctors are returning to the Brooklyn Bowl on January 30th.
Originally formed in New York City in the late 1980s, it’s only fitting for the band to return to the Big Apple after last year’s 30th-anniversary celebration at the Brooklyn Bowl in November 2018.
The Spin Doctors exploded onto the scene with their 1991 debut live release, Up For Grabs, which featured several tracks spanning beyond 10 minutes. They capitalized on the momentum of their debut live album with the release of their first studio LP, Pocket Full Of Kryptonite, later that year.
Over the past 30 years, the Spin Doctors, comprised of Chris Barron (vocals), Aaron Comess (drums), Eric Schenkman (guitar/vocals), and Mark White (bass), have sold millions of records worldwide. They are currently in the process of working on their seventh studio album as they come off a worldwide tour, bringing their total tally of live performances to nearly 2,000.
While Pocket Full Of Kryptonite sold only 60,000 copies in late 1991, the album received a boost in mid-1992 when radio stations nationwide got a hold of the single “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong”. Behind the massive commercial success of “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes”released as singles in 1993, Pocket Full Of Kryptonite went on to be certified Platinum five times over and sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. The Spin Doctors remain part of the enduring soundtrack of the ’90s.
Spin Doctors – “Two Princes”
Before going on hiatus from 1999 to 2001, the group joined Phish, Widespread Panic, Blues Traveler, and Col. Bruce Hampton & The Aquarium Rescue Unit on the inaugural H.O.R.D.E. Tour . Other career highlights include gracing the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, earning a Grammy nomination, performing on Saturday Night Live and supporting The Rolling Stones on their Voodoo Lounge Tour throughout the U.S., Canada & Brazil. After coming back from their hiatus, the group picked right back up at Manhattan’s Wetlands Preserve, marking one of the venue’s final shows before closing.
The band now returns to another Peter Shapiro-owned venue at the Brooklyn Bowl, a fitting home base at which to end up after a successful year of touring. This show is one you won’t want to miss.
