The Suncoast is famous for its culture and its medical community. And doctors who have a foot in each are butting heads in the upcoming Dr. Idol: Battle of the Bands competition.
Orthopedic surgeons Dr. Gordon and Dr. Morgan say that since there are so many doctors who play musical instruments, there must be similar skills in both music and medicine.
There will be 12 bands and 15 doctors competing in the Dr. Idol Battle of the Bands. Dr. Gordon's band, " McDreamy and the Anatomy" took first place last time.
Dr. Morgan and his band, "Soul Sensations" are a Suncoast favorite, but gastronologist Dr. Bob Felman, says his band, "Dr. Bob's Jazz Band" will give them a run for their money. Dr. Bob plays clarinet, and his band is popular in the Venice area.
The competition is Oct. 25th at the Hyatt Regency. Tickets are going fast.
Proceeds benefit Boys and Girls Clubs of Sarasota County.
