...Off The Leash!

Hey Dawg Fans,

Always a good time to be had at The Roadhouse, and Friday night was no exception.

Friday the 13th raised it's ugly head a few times during set up...namely Ken taking a chunk out of his left thumb when grabbing a road case handle (fortunately, he reports he made no more mistakes than usual during the show).  The buzz/hum gremlin briefly visited the PA system, and our network (yeah...we gots one of those) took some encouragement to come up.  Thankfully we got all of that stuff out of the way before the show.

The band brought back some tunes that hadn't been played in a while...Never Been To Spain and Jet Airliner made appearances, and Dana brought out the 1959 lap steel guitar for Canned Heat's Let's Work Together. So, thank you dancers, listeners, tippers, drinkers, partiers, friends, and family who make up the collective Dawg pound.  We'll keep doing it as long as you're diggin' it!

WeUnfortunately, due to administrative issues we will not be playing out in May.  Our next show will be Saturday, June 2nd at Hardtails Bar & Grill in Georgetown.  That's just a few days before Ken's birthday...so expect an extra helping of craziness that night!  See the gigs page for details.

Finally, don't forget about the Rhythm Dawgs app for Android.  Download it to keep up with our schedule and for last minute announcements.
