Dr Hook Tickets
See Dr Hook & The Medicine Show live
American rock band Dr Hook & The Medicine Show formed in 1975 in Union City, New Jersey, and was made up of George Cummings, singer Ray Sawyer and Billy Francis, who had previously worked together in another band called The Chocolate Papers. The trio then hired Dennis Locorriere – at first as a bass player, but he then went on to sing as well. Dr Hook are most famous for their novelty, easy-listening rock ‘n’ roll songs with a heavy influence from disco soft rock too. Fans of similar artists such as UK heartthrob David Essex, king of the disco Leo Sayer and fellow New Jersey band Firefall will enjoy the light-hearted guitar sounds of Dr Hook & The Medicine Show.

Chart-topping success for Dr Hook
After forming in 1975, the band enjoyed chart-topping success for over eight years, with their easy-listening, light and fun-sounding soft rock style appealing to fans all over the world. Their music is so varied that it bridges several genres of rock, disco and pop music, and is guaranteed to get everyone up on the dance floor! Their top singles included songs such as "Sharing the Night Together", "A Little Bit More" and "The Cover of 'Rolling Stone'". The band shortened their performing name later on in their career to just Dr Hook, after lead singer Ray Sawyer lost his eye in a near-fatal car crash, resulting in him needing to wear an eye patch. Inspired by this rather unusual look – and coupled with the story of Peter Pan and his nemesis, Captain Hook – Dr Hook was formed!
Dr Hook without Ray
In 1985 the original line-up split and Dennis kept the ownership of the band's name, releasing a few solo albums and touring under the name "Voice of Dr Hook". His 50th anniversary world tour commenced in 2019. Ray Sawyer also performed separately using "Dr Hook featuring Ray Sawyer" as his own stage name, until his last tour in 2015. Ray sadly passed away on 31 December 2018, but Dennis was determined to continue reviving the Dr Hook name, touring and playing the fun-loving soft rock songs their fans had grown to love.
