The Stereo Dogs
Saturday - Aug 03, 2019 7:30PM
Affectionately referred to as a “jamming band of high schoolers pumping out 80’s hits,” and “teen sensations” by Mobile’s Lagniappe Magazine, Stereo Dogs is an emerging rock band with incredible talent. These 19 year-old musicians are dedicated to providing an intense and enjoyable rock and roll experience to their fans as they play originals and covers to rave reviews. Their momentum as a band accelerated in 2015 with the release of their first CD (self-titled “Stereo Dogs”), and their spin on classic rock always stops viewers in their tracks!
The band was founded in 2012, but came to fulfillment with its current members in August of 2013. At that time all of the members were 13-years old and they started playing at regional venues on a regular basis. With an interest in traditional classic rock the band’s love of 60’s, 70’s and 80’s music spills into their originals, which tend to make transitions from explosive old school rock to a series of funky cut-time rhythmic phrases.
Expect a raw rock and roll show with unexpected injections of funk and jam-band spontaneity. Plug In! to the Stereo Dogs!
