Root Doctor

Root Doctor, born of the fertile Lansing, Michigan music community, had its humble beginnings in the open mic scene of the late 1980s. The deeply rooted, soulful connection shared by founding members Freddie Cunningham (lead vocals) and James Williams (bass guitar & vocals) anchors the band’s sound. Root Doctor has kept one other constant over the years: a powerful soul-blues sound with precious few peers. The current line-up features prodigal original band mate Mike Skory (Hammond B3, keyboards & vocals), Bill Malone (guitar & vocals), and Bobby Gardner (drums), all veteran performers whose abundant abilities allow Root Doctor to continue their long tradition of amazing audiences and wowing critics.

Root Doctor plays a diverse mix of classic soul and R&B alongside traditional blues and inspired original material. Along with 25 years of club, concert and festival performances, they have released six recordings to local and national acclaim. Their 2013 release, New Attitude, has been receiving airplay and rave reviews from around the world, including Australia, Italy and Japan.
