Stewart "Doc" Dalrymple

As far back as he can remember, Stewart "Doc" Dalrymple has had an intense love for music of all genres. He is a multi-talented musician, well versed in guitar and keyboard, but his love and his craft is the Bass. Stewart has an honorary doctorate in music and is a very well respected player on the birthplace of Southern Rock scene in it's birthplace of Middleburg and Jacksonville, Florida. Ever so humble, Stewart has shared the stage with many local and regional bands, including Dippin' Skinny, Timbertown and the Curt Towne Band-some of Southern Rocks finest musicians. His love for music has carried him through the high times and low times in his life. In his own words, Stewart expresses just that- "I love performing music of all genres. Music brings people together and soothes the soul in the darkest hour. Because of music I have met some very amazing people. Without it, life would be dull and very boring."
