The Dogs are a Rock n Roll group started in 1997 by 4 seasoned and accomplished musicians looking for a better alternative to "Classic Rock". They have avoided the standard Drek of the usual cover band format, and replaced it with polished deep cut vinyl tracks that take you back to where you were when these gems were released. No schlocky costumes or tribute band gimmicks, just great tunes served up by a tight musical unit who truly love what they do, and who give the proper respect and reverence these musical masterpieces deserve.
After 17 years of steady gigs, The Dogs are clearly running on all cylinders and have the same enthusiasm and love for this music as the day they started. With over 90 songs in the current library, The Dogs can easily play 3 gigs without repeating a song. The list of artists runs from Steely Dan, The Grateful Dead, The Cure,Cake, Beatles and Stones, to Zappa and Jethro Tull to name a few. Their state of the art sound system delivers a crisp clear live experience enhancing the musical details of their performances. So come on out and give them a listen. That's all these dogs really need!
