Doc Licata

"Rockin' the world, one gig at a time"

When you go to one of Doc's rockin' solo shows, you'll hear plenty of great music: roots rock, British invasion, swinging 60s and 70s, new wave, 80s and 90s favorites, modern rock classics.

 

The Good Guys delivers party rock from the '60s, '70s and '80s to put the beat in your feet and a smile on your face.

 

And Doc's "Sentimental Journey" is a jazzy and engaging solo show for "Greatest Generation" audiences whose musical tastes reach back beyond the rock and roll era to the music of Gershwin, Rodgers & Hart, classic movie themes and popular songs.

AVAILABLE NOW
FOR LIVE PERFORMANCES

Who is Doc Licata?

photocopied picture of Doc LicataDoc Licata is a veteran of the local music scene whose earliest musical memories are of "race records" his mom bought in the '50s. He sings and plays guitar and blues harp. Buffalo born and raised (P.S. 68, 81 and Riverside High School), Doc completed chemistry and education degrees at UB and taught for 34 years in Williamsville, mostly at South High, with a good start at Casey Middle. He also taught in UB's Graduate School of Education on and off for nearly 20 years. Doc treasures those experiences and loves when teaching colleagues, former students or their parents turn up at gigs.

Musical interests and influences range widely across rock, blues, jazz and classical genres. Doc's performing repertory centers on rock and blues with forays into standards and folk music. He is something of a Beatle specialist (and fanatic) and is happy to talk about his pilgrimage to Liverpool and London in pursuit of contact with the Beatles' roots and career. Solo performances include plenty of Beatles and great tunes from across the rock era. Doc played classic rock with Still Kickin' and wailed on vocals and harp with the Lucky Break Blues Band. His newest trio project, The Good Guys, plays '60s-'80s party rock.
