Four out of Five Doctors- Synesthesiologists

Isaac played keyboards and accordion, for years with Paper Scissors, and also in other shorter lived bands such as “New Teen Paranormal Romance,”, “Night of the Iguana” and “The Lithe.” He played guitar and theremin in Four out of Five Doctors.

Though for years his music was in the surf, ska and punk realms, he has been getting more jazzy in his more recent years. Lately he has been playing with Shane Connor of The Longshots.
