In an ideal world, country radio would sound more like the Doc Marshalls. With influences ranging from traditionalists such as Buck Owens and Johnny Cash to innovators like Gram Parsons and Dwight Yoakam, this New York City-based five-piece delivers an honest, unflinching honky tonk sound. Not content to remain within the confines of a typical roots band, they also boast a raucous set of Cajun breakdowns and Zydeco shuffles. Led by Texas-raised Acadian Nick Beaudoing, the Doc Marshalls have quickly forged a reputation for their wildly energetic live shows. Anchored by the fiddling wizardry of Mat Kane and the breakneck accompaniment of Beaudoing's Cajun accordion, their unique Louisiana grooves have infiltrated the halls of countless alternative rock venues where roots music is seldom heard. Whether performing Bakersfield-style shuffles or traditional Cajun French two-steps, they are determined to make converts of even the most country-shy souls. In an era when mainstream country remains polluted by bubble gum balladry and sugar-coated sentiment, the Doc Marshalls have distinguished themselves by performing covers and originals which pay homage to the genre's distinguished past. You'll find these hardened city troubadours in converted roadhouses throughout New York City and wherever bar tabs and ears remain open. Country radio be damned.
