Doctor Pizza is a smooth, funky, psychedelic space jazz band based in the Detroit area. While each band member has a wide array of musical backgrounds and influences, jazz fusion is the common ground they all share.

The project began as a drum and bass duo. After putting out a couple releases with the help of friends and session players, the two made it a point to expand the project into a full-time band.

The quartet has been writing material together for the past few years and have an album currently in the mixing process, scheduled to be released in the fall of 2017. The band’s live performances can be a mix of originals, covers, jazz standards, or a 100% improvised performance.

Doctor Pizza is:

Steve Ponce – Bass/effects
Elliott Rovinsky – Drums
Jim Stevenson – Keys/synth/effects
Kevin McKinney – Sax/effects
