Dr Dave Band

The Dr. Dave Band is a high-energy “good-time” Country Rock band that knows how to turn on a crowd.  Dr. Dave describes the music as “Kick-Grass Country Rock.”  Picture country-rock on steroids with an infusion of bluegrass banjo and fiddle.  The performance can be described as a cross between Garth Brooks and Skynyrd with some “kick-grass” Charlie Daniels, and Earl Scruggs thrown in. The Dr. Dave Band has performed at concerts with national artists including Lone Star, Styx, Trace Adkins, John Fogerty, Outlaws, Charlie Daniels Band, Marshall Tucker Band, and more.  The band has received the Herald Tribune Reader’s Choice First Place Award for Best “Live Music Group” 5 of the last 6 years. Local performances have included the Sarasota New Year’s Eve Pineapple Drop, Van Wezel Friday Fest, Sarasota RocktoberFest, Siesta Key Beach Seafood Fest, Marine Max Aquapalooza, and many more.  The Dr. Dave Band is in the “make people happy” business. Our mission is “Putting Smiles on Faces, Happiness in Hearts.”

The Whole Band

The Whole band is a mix of many of the Sarasota area’s most talented musicians.  Quickly gathering a large local fan base, they have just released their first CD:  “The Whole Band: Live at Blase’ Cafe“. 

Their live show is something to behold, with an amazing blend of original music and mind-blowing versions of covers that showcase the exceptional vocals and musicality of the Whole Band. Their roots are wide, weaving in Americana, Blues, Rock, Bluegrass, Country and R&B.  With super tight three-part harmonies, poignant original lyrics and a groove all their own, they always leave listeners with a smile and a natural high. 

Lead singer, Callie Chappell is an award-winning songwriter with a soulful, soaring voice that goes right to the heart. On super-smooth lead vocals and adding incredible guitar skills and songwriting is Kevin Thompson.  Add the young prodigy, Zack Yoder (he can play and sing anything) to the mix and the blend is complete and heavenly!

Dave Peirce is a world-class pedal steel player that can play any style the band throws at him.  Master of the groove, J.P. Coley plays stand-up bass and electric bass guitar.  Finally, keeping it all together is the very much in demand and versatile Steve Apostoli on drums and cajon.

Fans have described the band as “magical”, “amazing”, “the best band around”, “tight”, “a love fest” and “fun”!
