Remember where you were when you last heard...
Our service was started because at weddings and events we noticed that frequently younger DJs play music they like, and far too loud - which sends older guests scurrying outside or they go home early to escape the noise, concussion, and contemporary "music." Few were dancing. It seems the only ones having a good time at parties these days are the D.J. and a few soon-to-be hearing impaired teens. Hey, nothing wrong with that. That's good fun and very popular if you are a teen or a twenty-something...
But...what about the REST of the guests?
We created "Da Spin Doctor" ©® to do just the opposite - and for the rest of us who enjoy the music of our lives!
DJ-ing started on the radio, and Professor Bob can take you "back to the future." We share the best music from NOW plus the 1940's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and TODAY.
Da Spin Doctor plays it the way it was originally performed, and as loudly or as softly as YOU want it - before, during, and after your food & beverage service.
Delectable and digestible dinner music? Yum, yum!
Dance music? You bet! Rock & Roll? Oh ya, baby!
We do our best to accommodate your requests.
We don't play "dirty" hip hop or "cop killer" rap, and we only "scratch"
when we are itchy!
So, what DO you play?

A Personal Message -
A lot of folks ask why I do this. After all, I have a great career as a college
professor. So, why?
I think I have an answer, if you
will allow me two minutes of your time to explain…
I grew up in a time when popular music came into its
own. I was fortunate to live in a time
after big bands like Glenn Miller evolved from simply providing dance music to backing
up solo singers like Frank Sinatra and Helen O'Connell. Big Bands also featured vocal groups like the
Andrews Sisters and the McGuire Sisters.
Those four part harmonies evolved into street corner Doo Wop during the
50’s and 60’s. Then, those great harmonies
from groups like the Four Preps and Four Freshmen incorporated rock and roll
rhythms, which skyrocketed rock, rockabilly, and rhythm & blues performers
like Elvis Presley into our pop culture and forever into our lives. Motown capitalized on all that went before
and developed something entirely new to share with mainstream America and the
world. The Beatles and the Stones arrived, broke all the rules, and borrowed from all of the previous influences, crafting pop music into what
we have today.
Like many young folks back when I was a radio DJ, I assumed
that because music was popular (unlike ‘classical’ music) that pop music was
disposable. It didn’t seem important or
necessary to preserve last year’s hits because what was important at the moment
was what was new and popular.
But now, looking back I realize that pop music reflected who
we were at the time, evolving over time. It made
us laugh. It made us cry. Music is a memory marker in time to recall with
a smile our first date, our first kiss, our first car, our high school prom, our
wedding song, and where and who we were
when we heard those wonderful tunes.
So, the reason I do this is to share with you the music that
marked who we were at the time, who we became, and who we are becoming, like
mile markers on our personal highway. I
play current music so that this generation will have its own memories of this moment. Music triggers memories, some sweet and some
bittersweet, that are truly the history of our souls.
I was so wrong back then; Pop music was not disposable, but
essential to preserve and to share with those we care about. I do what I do to share the best music of our
lives so that we can each personally remember our “best of times.” What could be more important than that?

My music pulls me through
