Dr. Jules on Guitar
Since his arrival in Germany from New York many years ago, London born DR. JULES has cultivated a reputation as an inspiring, exciting, and soul-stirring vocalist bolstered by his additional competences as both a pianist and guitar player.
As a guitarist/vocalist, Dr. Jules plays a range of rock, popular and folk (Irish etc.) tunes from the last 40 years.
Amongst his most powerful songs include versions of popular classics such as "The Joker (Steve Miller)", "Time to Wonder (Fury in the Slaughterhouse)", "American Pie (Don McLean)", "Leaving on a Jet Plane (John Denver)", and "Roxeanne (Police)".
He plays everything ideal for a pub or club. Ballads, Rock 'n Roll, Irish Folk, Modern Irish (Van Morrison), just about everything from the Stones to Oasis, The Beatles to Breakfast at Tiffany's. He has a memorized repertoire of over 300 songs. Ideally, his guitar act is more suited to a party atmosphere than to a background situation.
His songs are performed in a style similar to his aforelisted mentors, but he also prides himself in presenting much of the material in his own, inimitable style.
