Spin Doctors released their most recent studio long-player, If the River Was Whiskey, nearly four years ago in May 2013 through Ruf Records. The album, which is supported by a lead single of the same name, reached No. 5 on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart.
The four-piece, which features Chris Barron (lead vocals, guitar), Eric Schenkman (guitar, piano, backing vocals), Aaron Comess (drums, percussion, backing vocals), and Mark White (bass, keyboards, backing vocals), is best known for the early ‘90s smash hits “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” from their debut full-length, Pocket Full of Kryptonite. The album, released in August 1991 via Epic Records, hit No 95 on the Billboard 200 and also includes two more singles: “Jimmy Olsen’s Blues” and “What Time Is It?”
Also on the bill will be Philadelphia’s own Tim Williams. The indie rock singer-songwriter released his third studio project, a 3-track single titled Part Time Local, back in August 2016. He released his first full-length, Blue Ribbon, back in 2012. Williams, who performs more than 300 shows annual, has previously opened for Of Monsters and Men, Goo Goo Dolls, Better Than Ezra, Butch Walker, Jon McLaughlin, and Ryan Star, among others. Not only does Williams perform music at Citizens Bank Park before Philadelphia Phillies home games, he has also appeared on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and The Food Network’s Restaurant: Impossible.
