Based in Scituate, on the South Shore of Massachusetts, Doc Ellis is a cover band that offers an eclectic set of songs, with no genre off limits. On a given night we will cover Johnny Cash, Meghan Trainor, Motorhead, War, The Grateful Dead, Outkast, James Brown, Beastie Boys, Deep Purple, Dwight Yoakam, The Monochrome Set, Flo Rida…. you get the picture. Setlists are never repeated; we tailor our song selections for every gig and event, from formal fundraisers and family cookouts to all night rave-ups. Recognizing that music is a living breathing thing, we don’t just settle for playing the same old “greatest hits.” We’re always on the lookout for new sounds and our songlist is constantly updated with new material.
Doc Ellis also performs on occasion as Sandmen, a side project dedicated to covering the music of Mark Sandman and Morphine.
