DNR was originally formed in 2002, when a group of 4
musically inclined physicians got together in a friend’s
garage to play rock music. It was a way of unwinding at
the end of a hectic day at the office. Initially, the
band was comprised of 2 rhythm guitars, keyboard, and
Slowly individual musicians were added and the
band gradually evolved into its current 8 member status
but has remained true to its classic rock ’n roll roots.
Because many of the band members are doctors by day and
musicians at night, the name “Do Not Resuscitate” (DNR)
appealed to our macabre sense of humor. The band
eventually moved beyond the garage and now practices at
a fabric warehouse where the acoustics are wonderful for
making music. .
The band focuses on danceable vintage tunes from the
‘60s and ’70’s, playing the music of such artists as
Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, Van Morrison and
the Beatles. Occasionally rock sounds of the 80’s and
90’s and classic jazz standards work their way into our
repertoire. DNR has performed at The Levitt Pavilion in
Westport and has donated its time at many charitable
events including fundraisers for pancreatic and breast
cancer, Norwalk Hospital and ALS.
DNR also plays at
local entertainment venues including Bobby Q’s,
Georgetown Saloon and the Bear & Grill. The band is
available for hire at events where the participants will
enjoy our upbeat classic rock ‘n roll sound. (For more

We get our greatest pleasure from the energy of our
audience dancing and enjoying the music we love to
play. We look forward to seeing you at our next gig.
