“People of all ages laid on the lawn and grooved to the tunes Saturday as nine bands vied for the ultimate prize at Rock the Park competition at Riverfront Park. Ultimately the judges chose the Auburn-based band The Good Doctor to take home the grand prize of $750 and an opportunity to play opener at the Downtown Countdown New Year's Eve Celebration. Singer Jonathan "MCsquared" Avant is from Montgomery and said it was great to be able to win in his hometown. The Good Doctor played last and didn't get to see some of the performances from earlier in the day. Because of this, Avant admitted they didn't know if they would win or not. In the end, however, The Good Doctor found its rhythm and took home first place. "This is one of the best, if not the best, gigs I've ever had," Avant said. "Much props to everybody who played a part in throwing this amazing show." Bulletproof Marshmallows won second place and solo artist Patrick Cross took home third.”

“Got a hunger for some funk? If so, you should head to Dingus MaGee’s this weekend to get your fill of jazzy jams and soulful sounds of The Good Doctor. Their unique blend of funk, jazz and rock is sure to get you on your feet and feeling good. Hailing from Auburn, Ala., this clan of five will be making their Statesboro debut with a two-night run on Sept. 15 and 16. Not only are they extremely talented when it comes to making music, but they also have a certain humor and wit that seals them as the total package. The band consists of Austin Solomon slapping bass, Russ Garner setting the beat on drums, Jonas Schultz delivering sexy sounds on the sax and keys, Chris Deason blowing out pure funk on the trumpet and, last but not least, Allen Long laying down rhythm on the guitar.”

“For some, music is a passion or a hobby. For The Good Doctor, music is life. This Auburn area band is a rock group, influenced by funk, jazz, hip-hop and country. The multi-talented and professionally trained group was formed in 2009.”

“The Good Doctor Offers A Cure For The Common Party. Trust us, this won’t hurt one bit. When the musicians from The Good Doctor perform at downtown nightclub Belloo’s this weekend, your sole ailment might be an insatiable hunger for funk. The act consists of four guys who met at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass. After graduation, they moved to Opelika and found their fifth band member. The result: a unique blend of funk, rock and soul. With instruments like a saxophone and trumpet, this act demonstrates a musicality that reaches beyond simply re-creating danceable tunes. The five musicians recorded a CD at The Loft Recording Studio in Columbus and expect to release it soon. The band formed about a year ago and has built a following both locally and in places like Atlanta, Birmingham and Florida. Expect a mix of covers and original tunes. Members of The Good Doctor cite influences ranging from The Beatles to Steely Dan...”

“Auburn's Favorite Bands. Lance Acreman believes that the local bands are the ones that will keep the crowds coming back this fall. Acreman also mentions that local band Fallback is good, but he believes the best band in Auburn at the moment is The Good Doctor. The Good Doctor formed in February of this year and perform covers and originals that range from funk to rock. Vocalist/sax and keys player Jonas Schultz has been a part of the Auburn music scene since he was 12 years old. His father is the musician Uncle Roy and Schultz used to perform with him. “I guess I just got hooked,” he says. Although Schultz is from Auburn, the rest of the band hails from the north. “We play original funk, jazz, rock and covers too,” Schultz says. “We kinda play everything so we can fit in anywhere.” The Good Doctor consists of four members and sometimes brings in a trumpet player. They are all full-time musicians. The Good Doctor has been making its rounds in Auburn, playing popular bars l”

“The Doctor of Funk Is In. The Independent will be welcoming back local funk/jazz band The Good Doctor this weekend. The Good Doctor is a group of schooled musicians (Berklee, to be precise) who bring considerable talent to the table with tenor sax, keyboards and guitar that shifts seamlessly from funky rhythms to rock riffs. They have an EP of the same name, a brief introduction to the variety of styles the band has to offer. Jonas Schultz handles lead vocals, sax and keys. He keeps it funky on tunes like “Jammin at the Snake Farm” which sounds like vintage Parliament. Bassist Aus “The Sauce” Solomon locks in tight with Destiny on drums for “Sexy Trang,” a tune that is as soulful as it is humorous. Schultz dominates the sax with bluesy lines and fluid jazz runs, then puts it down on the keyboards within the same song. “Love Juice”is the perfect song for guitarist J Weezy to run through exotic scales...”
