Dr. Notorious is a singer-songwriter of blues-rock songs. His songs are very rhythmic with lyrics that, at times, are not entirely unwise, often are salacious, and not infrequently a little stupid too. He writes songs, he sings, he plays guitar, he plays harmonica, and, if you buy him a drink, he may even dance for you (or with you, it depends).
Dr. Notorious (aka Howard Botwinick) has been singing (according to some) and songwriting (according to most) for more than 20 years. Up until recently, his performances were largely confined to living rooms (and a few bedrooms). Over the last three years, he started to move into the public arena; sitting in with friends’ bands and playing the occasional public cameo performance. Now in 2011, Dr. Notorious has taken it up a notch with solo public performances. His widely acclaimed (yeah right!) public solo debut was January 8, 2011 at the Bazaar Cafe in San Francisco. Then he went onto performing at the Trickster Arts Salon. And he’s already booked to return to the Bazaar Cafe and will perform at the Center Camp Stage at Burning Man this year. Who knows where this will lead? Who wants to come along for the ride?
