The Fifth band signed by SCF Entertainment, the Dock Martins were brought on board in the winter of 2006. The Docks were signed to complement the already popular bands Stone Cold Fox, Electric Boogaloo, The White Leppard Crue and Slippery When Wet.
From Seattle, Washington, The Dock Martins was formed when the non-identical quadruplets, the Martin Brothers, were re-united after a decade of trying to make it on their own.
Anchoring he band and keeping the time is Marky “Spike”Martin. Spike spent a large part of the 90’s working on a Snow Crab boat in Alaska. During this time he developed a need for flannel. His addiction once reached the point of wearing everything flannel. Pants, shoes, shirts, hats. Everything. After a stint at Betty Ford for the flannel addiction, Spike made his way back to Seattle to form a rock band.
On Guitar is Stevie Martin. Spending the 80’s and most of the 90’s in New York working on his doctorate in Pre-Colonial Under Water BB stacking, Stevie learned his craft by playing in the night clubs at night to make ends meet. Once he received his degree, he realized that working life just wasn’t in the cards. He called his brother Spike and suggested they form a band in Seattle, thus the Dock Martins were born.
Next up was a singer…. Enter Stain Martin. Stain happened to be the only of the brothers still in Seattle, working for their father Dr. Phil Martin feeding rats in the family research facility. Stain had never sung a song before in his life, but when Spike and Stevie convinced him to sing at a karaoke club, they knew right away that they had their man. All they needed now was a bass player.
Holding down the bottom …………….. Dino Martin. Living in Vegas Dino was holding down the Bass Ukelele duties in a Don Ho tribute band by night and handing out flyers on the strip by day, all the while missing the Seattle sound. One day while working the strip, he just decided to quit and head back to Seattle where he had heard that his brothers were putting together a new band. The rest is history.
Now the Dock Martins have moved to the east coast and joined the SCF family spreading the sounds of Seattle’s alternative music all across the Southeast.
