The Good Time New Orleans Dance Band!

Playing the best mix of vintage

Rock N Roll, Blues, Funk and R&B,

with that distinct New Orleans flair!

Dr Rob Dahmes founded The Prescriptions in 1988 along with other personnel from JoEllen Smith Hospital. Originally the band was formed to play for a private party, but everyone had so much fun, it was decided we would try to make a go of it. Over the years, many wonderful musicians have played with the Prescriptions including Jody Dickerson, DDS,  Mack Cantrell, Bill Brasted, PhD, Phil Maddux, John Wakeman, PhD, Bill Lanxner, Glenn Weber, Ben Alter, Bob Green, Debbie Green, Wendy Talley, Lauren Barrett, Amber Rouleau, Cydney Hedgpeth and Susie Hall. In its’ various forms, the band has played numerous clubs, festivals, fund raisers, weddings and private parties. We have played in almost every major hotel in New Orleans. We have played for West Jefferson Medical Center, City Park Dog Park’s semi-annual fund raiser, the Celebrity Chefs’ Charity fund raiser, Save the Lighthouse and others. These days the band plays around town more than ever at places such as The Blue Crab, DMAC's and Rivershack Tavern, as well as doing weddings and private parties. Currently, the band consists of Dr. Rob, Brad Carr,  Dr. Glenn Hedgpeth, Stephen Dupree and Kelly Shaw. We play music from the 60s on up and tend to focus on Rock N Roll, Funk, R&B, Blues and a little bit of country, all played with that New Orleans flair! Please do us the honor and come see a show and be sure to say hello!
