Last weekend was a whirlwind of amazing experiences for Doctor Robert, The Beatles Tribute. Friday, the Colorado spring weather held in Aspen and we were able to perform outside for a great après ski crowd at the Ajax Tavern. We’re always overwhelmed by the enthusiasm we receive from the good people in the Roaring Fork Valley. We were even invited to a home in Aspen to perform an acoustic set after our set at Ajax Tavern. Saturday, the band had an unforgettable 30 minute set playing at the Macky Auditorium Concert Hall on CU’s campus in Boulder, and shared the stage with members of Yonder Mountain String Band, The Head and the Heart, Rose Hill Drive, The Infamous Stringdusters, Hot Rize, West Water Outlaws and many others! We all decided this was undoubtedly the most amazing venue The Doctor has played since our formation in August, 2010. Sunday’s weather cancelled our 2nd show at the Ajax Tavern in Aspen, but we found a generous coffee shop that let us play an acoustic Beatle set to a wonderful audience. Thanks to everyone involved last weekend and to all of you live music supporters out there.
Here are several recordings from last Friday afternoon at Ajax Tavern, with a handful of photos below from our amazing Macky Auditorium experience.

Doctor Robert performed two sets of Beatles music for the Crested Butte Nordic Center’s end-of-season party last week at Montanya Rum Distillery. Playing music in the old Powerhouse building with The Still as our backdrop: the copper pot, lentil, condenser, and many other components that produce the amazing rum at Montanya’s. Thanks to the Crested Butte Nordic Center for having us! This party was a “thank you” to the 500 season pass holders, the 300 Grand Traverse atheletes, and the volunteers that make everything come together so smoothly each year. This was the 26th year for the Nordic Center, and the 16th annual Elk Mountains Grand Traverse.
Our dear friend and expert with a camera, Xavier Fane (www.xavierfane.com), took some great photos of the evening, posted below. We also had local film crew, Two Plank Productions, taking some video of the show. Look for video footage in the coming weeks on our website. As always, we recorded the night of Beatles music. We played our first version of George Harrison’s “Something” from Abbey Road, as well as a tease of the ending to “You Never Give Me Your Money” also from Abbey Road. Check for the links below Xavier’s photos.
And here are two recordings from the night, both first time performed by Doctor Robert, The Colorado Beatles Tribute:
