The Spin Doctors, one of the most popular bands of the 1990s, will make their Lakeside debut and perform hits “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes” on the Hoover Auditorium stage Saturday, June 10 at 7:30 p.m. For families with young children, please note this show is PG-13.
The band’s story began at the New School in New York City in the fall of 1988, when a fateful door-knock sparked the first meeting of drummer Aaron Comess and guitarist Eric Schenkman.
Schenkman joined forces with local legend John Popper and vocalist Chris Barron to form the band Trucking Company. When Popper committed himself full-time to his main gig with Blues Traveler, the group sought new talent.
Having assured Schenkman that he’d “check them out,” Comess joined the group along with bassist Mark White, and the group adopted the new name Spin Doctors.
Their 1992 debut album, Pocket Full of Kryptonite, took the nation by storm. With more than 10 million sales, the album featured familiar hits like “Two Princes,” the follow-up hit to “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong.” Peaking at No. 4 on the Top 100 singles chart, “Two Princes” had more U.S. radio spins than any other rock & roll song in 1993.
After 30 years, the Spin Doctors have no plans to slow down. They’re still making music like their lives depend on it, still riding the bus and still shaking the room.
