we are a rock and roll band from Columbus Ohio. our names are nick & jon. we make backyard bbq breakup music.

the first song we wrote was its over. we were trying to write our own version of macy grays i try. in a few hours the song was done, and later that night in a text message we decided to start a band called DOC ROBINSON combining the two musical bookends of our influences dr dog and smokey robinson. we would later find out through you tube search results that DOC ROBINSON is also a world renowned fighting rooster, who has since squired several generations of fighting roosters.

we made our first ep golden daze with mike landolt, who is canadian, at vital studios in columbus ohio. It took 6 months, 237 cups of strong coffee, 74 pieces of uncle nick’s greek fried chicken, 26 separate viewings of the music video ‘out for a rip’ by canadian artist shark tank, and 1 bottle of moonshine.

next we made a full length record called deep end. It took 4 months, 13 musicians, (george barrie, jake levy, jeff bass, aaron bishara, todd hamric, seth bain, adam bidwell, terrance farmer, larry cook, adrian jusdanis, evan oberla, doug neel) 3 babies (frankie barrie, ella bass, ramona d’andrea) 2 studios (oranjudio, shred shed) 66 kickstarter backers, 7 adderals, and 1 trombone glissando.

now we are writing another record with songs called leave a light on, chattanooga, lemon misty, ring of love, morning stay and miles ahead. when it’s done we’ll play it for you.
