Pictured: The seminal jam act Spin Doctors developed their live show and built a following with frequent late ’80s gigs in Manhattan before entering the national spotlight with their 1991 studio album Pocket Full Of Kryptonite and it hits “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong.” The band was a part of the inaugural H.O.R.D.E. Tour in 1992 with Phish, Blues Traveler, Widespread Panic, Col. Bruce Hampton & The Aquarium Rescue Unit and Bela Fleck & The Flecktones. After a number of lineup changes, decades of touring and multiple studio albums, the original members are back in place. Their latest, If The River Was Whiskey, was recorded completely live.
