The Spin Doctors and Arrested Development

Join the Academy Center of the Arts and Centra for the July Riverfront Park Concert featuring the Spin Doctors and Arrested Development on Saturday, July 14, 2018, at 5:00pm!

The Spin Doctors' four original members, frontman Barron, guitarist Eric Schenkman, bassist Mark White and drummer Aaron Comess,

can still appreciate the uncanny, enduring musical rapport that’s allowed them to maintain the upbeat energy and restless creativity that first endeared them to their fiercely devoted fan base.

“When you get the four of us in one room, things just start to happen,” Schenkman asserts. “It instantly feels like the old days. The identity of the group asserts itself. That’s a great feeling, and it reminds us that the four of us belong together.”

The current 20th-anniversary tour affords Spin Doctors fans the opportunity to re-experience the body of material that first brought them together. “Going out and playing this record feels amazing, ” Comess says. “Records that stand the test of time are the ones that come from an honest place, and this one certainly does just that. It still feels great playing these songs.”

It’s been twenty years since a new group called Arrested Development slammed the gangsta dominated world of hip hop with defiant lyrics of hope. Apparently, the world was ready for the change as AD became the first ever hip-hop artist to receive the “best new artist” Grammy, (a distinction it still maintains today in that category). In addition, the group also received a Grammy award for “best rap single” for their anthemic prayer-like hit song, Tennessee. After taking a brief hiatus, Arrested Development re-emerged with a new line and new album, "Heroes of the Harvest", and has performed sold-out concerts in literally every part of the world since. They continue to release new music and find new success in different corners of the globe. Their shows are a celebration of life. Experiencing an Arrested Development concert is an uplifting and spiritual event wrapped into one big party.
