The Blues Dogs is a collection of Boston mutts that all love to play the blues. We especially like that rowdy, danceable stuff about how “my nasty habits are ‘bout to get the best of me.” That stuff that gets you to tapping your foot, nodding your head, and then just to shaking all over. Feeling good music.
So when we do some of that mournful stuff about how “my baby done up and left me,” everyone’s ready for one of them songs (and maybe ready for a slow dance).
The Dogs play guitar, keyboards, bass and drums. Three of the Dogs sing lead and background vocals, and we’ve been known to howl in harmony (at least until someone throws a shoe at us). And like true mutts, we’ve got a lot of influences in our blood streams: a little South Side Chicago, a little Texas boogie, a little uptown urban sophistication, and even a little jazz (but that’s the embarrassing part of the family tree…).
So when you’re ready to do some barking and scratching your own self, get off the porch and come join The Blues Dogs in howling the blues.
