Synopsis

Loop Doctors play a medley of different styles, including jazz, drum and bass, jungle, hip-hop and rap, spiced with effects and samples. An overall category could be nu jazz, but Loop Doctors can also be seen in clubs, where people actually dance to the music. Loop Doctors usually perform as a duo with Peter Szendofi on an octa-pad, from which the grooves, bass lines and additional synths are played, and also on the acoustic drums. Aron Romhanyi plays keys, as well as vocals and rap. Since 2006 they regularly tour as a duo, but also with special guests including Gary Willis (bass), Eric Marienthal (sax), Brandon Fields (sax), Chris Hunter (sax), Roalnd Szentpáli (tuba), Llibert Fortuny (sax) and Varga Gergő (sax). In this concert, they will play as a duo and introduce their latest album, Frontier Science.

Artist Information

Loop Doctors

The basic idea for Loop Doctors came in 2005, when founding members of the band, Aron Romhanyi and Peter Szendofi came together with Gary Willis for Szendofi’s solo album recording. The band was eventually formed, with special guests Gary Willis on bass and Kornél Fekete-Kovács on trumpet. Together, they recorded the first album High Voltage.

 

Albums
High Voltage featuring Gary Willis on bass was released in 2006, and received best jazz album of the year at the Fonogram – Hungarian Music Awards 2008. Their second album White Orange Black (2008) featured classical tuba virtuoso and composer Roland Szentpáli, who broke barriers of modern arrangement with the unique use of tuba as a bass instrument. Entering a Room was recorded at Peter Karl Studios, New York City in 2014 and featured Chris Hunter, Gary Willis, Brandon Fields and Roland Szentpáli.
