Doctor Stomp and Professor Oz are back! From about 1998 until 2006 the Bridport, Dorset based duo developed a cult following for their unique brand of folk and roots music. Their zany act which needs to be seen to be believed includes jaw dropping showmanship and instrumental wizardry.

Upcoming Gigs:


Thu 1st June, Fanny's Meadow, SOMERSET, t.b.c.

more details coming soon

The double act performed together at a great many events across the west country including several appearances at Glastonbury Festival. They both worked exclusively as musicians from 2000 until 2006 focusing mainly on Doctor Stomp and Professor Oz duo gigs.

When they get together they have been known to draw from a diverse range of musical styles including bluegrass, blues, old-time, vintage country, American folk, cowboy songs, hillbilly, jazz, celtic folk, English folk, and world folk music.

Upon going their separate ways Doctor Stomp rebranded to Stompin' Dave and has continued to make his living entirely as a musician making appearances all over the UK and beyond.

Concentrating on American roots styles Dave has performed at many bluegrass, blues, folk, and rock n roll music festivals including some major festivals such as Bestival, Camp Bestival, etc. Dave was nominated for a British Blues Award in the acoustic act category 2014.

Oz has been playing in many local bands as well as with some touring musicians visiting the west country such as London based bluesman Errol Linton and zydeco maestro Flaky Jake.

Oz the perfect foil to Dave’s exuberance adds backing vocals, guitar, fiddle, and lap steel to Dave’s lead singing, banjo, guitar, keyboard, fiddle, harmonica and flatfoot dancing.

The duo met whilst both studying music at Bournemouth and Poole College back in the early nineties so they have now been performing together for over twenty five years.

Since disbanding Dave and Oz have kept up the odd performance together mostly at private events. They brought the house down at their last official "reunion" gigs at the legendary Evershot Village Hall in 2015 and 2017.
