The Plate Scrapers originated in 2014 in western Maryland the way any good bluegrass band does: from a bunch of fellers pickin’ around in a circle, surrounded by delicious plates of food, strong libations, and good friends.
The traditional spirit of The Plate Scrapers is still innately intact nearly 8 years later, though they have evolved into far more than your average bluegrass band. Through diverse backgrounds and influences ranging from jazz, to hard rock, to funk, the band has taken their music to an eclectic new level.

Dave Fenstermacher and Peter Franklin add the perfect complement of musical textures to the KDC sound.
The idea for the Ken Demith Collection was formed in 2006 when Ken left the popular Dallas zydebilly band the Comelongs. Ken began calling in his talented musician friend in DFW to join him in recording and performing his songs and the idea of a "collection" of supporting band members was born.

The Learned Doctors is a collection of Maryland musicians who, above all else, love to play music, and love to create a good time for everyone around. Our philosophy is to take the performance seriously, take the execution of the music seriously, but not take ourselves too seriously along the way. If the audience and the hosts are happy, we’re happy!
While we come from diverse musical backgrounds, we’ve found that our sweet spot is classic 90’s jams, although we have an extensive catalog ranging from 60’s classics through contemporary music. We love being able to pull off song requests, and will typically attempt most requests we know well enough to sing. If you’re ailing for a fun, energetic party band, we’re just what the Doctor ordered!
