The LOVE DOGS are a swingin’, rockin’, rhythm & blues band out of Boston, Massachusetts. Take one red-hot horn section – we’re talkin’ alto, tenor, baritone saxes and trombone – down and dirty. Add liberal amounts of barrelhouse boogie-woogie piano and stinging Fender guitar. Pour over a funky and swinging rhythm section that Blues Review magazine called “the best in the business”, and top it all off with a crazy and charismatic front man with one of the biggest blues voices around.
Season with a few years on the road tearing up juke joints, festivals and concert halls across the U.S. and Canada and on both sides of the Atlantic. Voted “Best New England Band” by Blues Audience magazine, the Dogs are Part Rat Pack party, part 20th century musical encyclopedia, and part revival meeting. The New York Post says “Even though the music could make Leonardo’s David dance, it’s the songwriting that separates these dogs from the rest of the pack” and Blues Review agrees “If there were a Superbowl for crowd pleasing rhythm & blues, a photo of The Love Dogs would be on every Wheaties box in America.”
The T-TOWN ACES were voted Best New Blues Band by the members of the Washington Blues Society (May 2012). This an all-star outfit whose line-up brags its latest edition, award-winning axeman Tom Boyle. Fronted by Steve Bailey and Dennis Ellis, two of the Northwest’s best blues bandleaders, Tacoma’s T-Town Aces are the definition of West Coast Blues. They swing hard, shuffle hard and are as greasy as that burger you just ate at Dick’s. Steve plays harp, slide, guitar and sings. Dennis plays sax, sings and keeps the party hopping. David Hudson and Curtis Smith round out the band. Keeping things anchored at the bottom and swinging in the pocket, the rhythm section has played together for 13 years.
