Doctors, lawyers and accountants aren't typically praised for their musical and vocal ability — until now.
The members of the Moos Bros. party band operate like professional, modern-day superheroes, trading in their stethoscopes and business cards for guitars and microphones at the end of a nine-to-five work day.
The Moos Bros. features Nick Barlotta (financial advisor with Wells Fargo in Destin) on lead guitar and vocals, Joe Calderon (surgery technician and student) on keyboard, alto saxophone and vocals, Bobby Elmore (special prosecutor for the state attorney's office) vocals and harmonica, Bart Fleet (attorney, arbitrator and mediator for Fleet, Spencer & Kilpatrick, PA) on bass guitar, Bill Kilpatrick (attorney with Fleet, Spencer & Kilpatrick, PA) on guitar and vocals, Ginger Madden (prosecuting attorney with the states attorney's office) on vocals, Dr. Billy Marshall (orthopedic surgeon and founding member of Orthopedic Associates) on drums, Dr. Jimmy Nabors (retired dentist and entrepreneur) on keyboard and vocals and Maggie Tomecek (drug court coordinator for Okaloosa County) on vocals.
Many of the Moos Bros. members got their musical start as children, including the group’s bass guitarist, Fleet.
Fleet told The Log that, before pursuing a more formal education in law, he worked for years as a professional musician and eventually went to college with the hopes of majoring in music.
After taking a 10-year hiatus from the musical scene to focus on their careers, the Moos Bros. has only been back together for about one year, devoting most of their performing time to charitable organizations.
Known for performing musical favorites of the past, including Motown, rock-and-roll, country and soul, the Moos Bros. will take to the stage together again from 7:30-11 p.m. Feb. 15.
