Doctors Orders is a ten-piece AMAZING  band based in the Washington, DC and Baltimore metropolitan area. They have been playing together as a band for nearly 20 years. Whether it’s a wedding, anniversary, corporate outing, birthday, or event at the country club, their versatility allows them to customize the repertoire to suit your guest list. They offer first rate entertainment with an energetic show that is sure to be a hit with your guests.

Fronted by dynamic singer/saxophonist Kyle Johnson and Miriamm Wright, a nationally renowned singer of Peaches and Herb fame, this band delivers a big sound that is sure to make your party a success. “We’ve played every kind of party imaginable,” says Johnson, “anniversaries, country clubs, we even played a party for servicemen at Quantico celebrating their return from the Persian Gulf.” From top 40 to 70’s to 80’s to standards, they’ve got all your bases covered. “The chemistry of the band is obvious from the first chord”, remarks guitarist Bill McCarron, “it’s not like it’s really a conscious effort on our part, we just have a blast playing together.”

Hi Ray,

Great seeing you last week! I just wanted to pass along a note regarding Doctor’s Orders at Lisa & Michael’s wedding this past weekend. The band was PHENOMENAL. I heard so many great things from guests but what really brought it home was the feedback I got from our staff. These folks hear bands wedding after wedding after wedding, not just here but at previous hotels they’ve worked at or still do part-time. For them to have such glowing reviews shows how undeniably magnetic the band was so please pass along to them my sincerest appreciation. They are welcome back any time!

All my best,

Assistant Director of Catering

Mary loved them!

“I have done a lot of weddings this season and last weekend’s band, Doctor’s Orders, was by FAR the best and most professional. I will recommend your company first to my brides after my experience this season.”-Mayflower Hotel

We are still basking in the glow of our daughter’s wedding.  It was just amazing!  Doctor’s Orders was absolutely fabulous!!!  We would highly recommend this band.  Although we were able to access their videos online beforehand and thought this group was great, they were even more spectacular in person!  The reception was lively, thanks to Doctor’s Orders which kept our crowd on the dance floor all night long.  The musicians were superb and the singers were out of this world!  Throughout the evening and in the days since, we continue to receive rave reviews from our guests about how great the music was.

“I am the father of the bride and was given the task of finding the music. All that I can say is that the band made the night “magical”; their talent is on another planet compared to comparable bands in Pittsburgh. The dance floor was full the entire evening. The musicians were all very approachable. They coordinated seamlessly with our party planner and videographer. They read the “vibe” of the crowd perfectly. The word is already being spread about them here in Pittsburgh. Can’t wait to see the video so that we can experience it all over again.”

“Doctors Orders played at our wedding. I would not only recommend them, I would urge you to use them if live music is what you were looking for. They were simply amazing! Their band leader, Steve, was always responsive, took personal time to talk on the phone and brain storm ideas. When the big day came, WOW is all I can say. The entire wedding was up dancing, singing and having a blast. Young, old and in between our guests loved the song selection and were able to enjoy.They knew exactly how to keep the party going, our guests did not want to leave and they actually played an encore! Kyle facilitated our toasts and speeches with ease. They were easily the highlight of our wedding (other than getting married)! Definitely worth it! Thanks again to the band.”

“Doctors Orders was the best wedding band! They had our guests on the dance floor the entire night, and everyone left saying that it was the best band they’d ever seen. They were incredible! A few of our engaged friends even stopped by after the wedding to get the band’s info so they could book them for their own weddings.”

“This band was phenomenal! They were professional in every aspect and had our guests dancing during the entire wedding reception. They are able to play a wide variety of music and adjust their songs to the make sure everyone is having a great time.
I was continually told by many guests how much they enjoyed their performance. Do not miss the opportunity to book this band for a reception or another special event. You will not be disappointed. Bravo to all of the band members for making my daughter’s wedding reception such a success.”

We cannot say enough good things about Doctor’s Orders! They were beyond amazing, from the their music at cocktails, to the first dance, through the whole evening–such a fun band with wonderful music–every song was great! The entire dance floor was packed the whole night, they created such a wonderful energy for the evening and never even took a break! They were the best band and every guest has been talking about how wonderful they were!! Thank you so much for such a wonderful evening!

“We were looking for a top notch band that was versatile to try and please all the guests that were going to attend our daughters wedding. We asked them to learn (4) songs not on their song list. No problem for them, not only did they learn them they played them to perfection. These guys are simply professionals. They are clearly the best wedding band we have ever heard. From their singers, to their musicians, to their floor show they are quite simply the best. If you want your dance floor full all night hire them.
“On behalf of Navid and I, as well as all our guests, we want to thank you for the stellar performance that Doctors Orders provided on our Wedding night. Everyone complimented the group so many times, you all were such a hit!”

“Everyone raved about the music your group provided, during the wedding and after. You made our wedding reception memorable and the best EVER! We cannot thank you enough for helping us make our wedding reception such a huge success, and working with us to meet our budget.

We truly appreciate it. The lead singer was amazing! Couldn’t be more happy! We hope your night was as enjoyable as ours.
