Earth to Doris does not exist any longer, regrettably. The band was formed for the annual barbecue at the Housing Co-op where my family lived. It was supposed to be a one-off, but we discovered we were really good! Not only that, it was a blast. So we kept it going and played for dinner/dances, fundraisers, weddings and Christmas parties.
We played a wide variety of rock, pop and oldies. With five out of six members singing, we were able to cover all sorts of styles, and use lots of harmony, which was very impressive, if I do say so myself. Our motto became “If you don’t like this song, stick around, ‘coz you’ll probably like the next one.” Some of my own favourites to sing were Misty Mountain Hop, Don’t Stop Believin’, I’m Yours, At Last, I Will Make You a Believer, Harvest Moon, and more.
Our last performance was the end of August, 2010. I include the band here, though, because it was a very big part of my life for 12 years, and I’m proud of what we did!
