Meet Doctor Sparkles... mad scientist, cartoon character, mystical chicken, beach bum, Santa''s Elf, spaceship landing sequence, Mexican tomcat, fantasy crooner, Mr. Gonad wannabe, Latin cornball, mushroom chorus, New Age wise guy and more... His attitude is tropically infectious, he plays the ukulele and he''s really a doctor!
Doctor Sparkles is the re-creation of Virginia Beach singer-songwriter Kevin Patrick Baiko. A folk-rock musician with a fondness for addressing the "deeper questions" in his songwriting, KPB''s creative endeavors, while ever waxing mystic, demonstrated an increasing propensity for silliness, especially in his musical tarot Fool''s Gold, a 22 song inner journey culminating in the (Gentle) Fool, an archetype to which KPB has invested lifelong fascination. Folly found fascinating fulfullment upon KPB''s re-acquaintance with his very first instrument, the ukulele. What followed was a light-hearted outpouring of epic silliness and songwriting that was to mark his inevitable transformation into the loveable wise guy who makes light of Self in the imagination, Doctor Sparkles.
His CD Sail Away is the audio recording of this transformation. Released in April 2006 as a strictly (and sillily) artistic work, the target audience of Sail Away was scarcely considered until its appeal to younger crowds (in heart or body) encouraged the development of the Doctor Sparkles live act, already sparkling with colorful costumes and facial glitter, to incorporate fanciful set back-drop and lighting. As such, he is currently working with several artists, local and national, to further develop his creative presentation into a Doctor Sparkles TV show for Children.
Nominated by Just Plain Folks for Cabaret Album of the Year, Sail Away is one creative far out collection of songs!
