Doctor Robert’s first multi-show run of the summer brought us to Boulder, Canon City, and a return to Alamosa. This was our longest stretch so far, totaling just under 700 miles, and included a flat tire on the trailer during an intense dust storm in the San Luis Valley. Thanks to everyone at all three stops that came out to see Doctor Robert. We saw a lot of friends and fans at every show, and it’s sure nice to see familiar faces so far from home!
We started in Boulder to play Boulder Beer Company’s first outdoor patio show of the season. The weather was fantastic and the patio was filled with plenty of Beatles fans. We even had two of this season’s wedding couples make special trips to say “hello.” Here’s a few fun ones from 5/24/12 in Boulder:
Next we went to 8 Mile Bar & Grill just west of Canon City. Amazing food and the open feel of the 8 Mile made for a great night, and fans of all ages came out to dance and sing along. They were even shooting a commercial for the restaurant, so there’s a chance we’ll be on TV soon. Here’s a few from 5/25/12 in Canon City:
The last stop brought us back to San Luis Valley Brewing Company in Alamosa. After replacing one flat tire and another tire that was close, we got things together and had an amazing night playing for a lot of receptive fans. A group of college students from New York happened to be in town volunteering at the local homeless shelter, and they all came to the show in full force. Thanks to them and all the other fans who helped make quite the memorable night for Doctor Robert. Here’s some highlights from 5/26/12 in Alamosa:

We want to send a huge THANK YOU to everyone that continues to come out to see Doctor Robert. It’s been a ton of fun playing Beatles music, and the energy is contageous. Check our schedule at http://www.myspace.com/doctorrobertbeatles/shows for any updates. We’ll see you at the next one…
We had our first performance since 3/31 last weekend in Del Norte, a fundraiser for their local community center, The Ruth Marie. This is our third show in the San Luis Valley, and second one in Del Norte, and folks in this beautiful area of Colorado really know how to have a good time. Thanks to everyone that came out to support their local community center, and for singing and dancing along with Doctor Robert.
Here’s a recording of Ob La Di Ob La Da from the evening, with an incredible “Ob La Train” forming during the second verse:
And this jam at to finish “Come Together” was a little dark and adventurous:
Thanks again for all of our fans in the San Luis Valley, we’ll see you again at San Luis Valley Brewing Company in Alamosa on Saturday, May 26th starting at 9:00.
