The Blues Dogs Show Band is a diverse group of doctors, lawyers, business owners, teachers, and laborers, who have a passion for blues music. The Dogs have been delivering the goods to audiences at clubs, festivals, fundraisers and concerts for over two decades. Honoring musical genres rooted in the blues, the band explodes traditional musical layers with original energy and creativity.  Their set lists are a creative mix of blues, rock, funk, and R&B classics that routinely pull audiences up to their feet, dancing.

The energetic and crowd-pleasing Blues Dogs have shared the stage with such notable artists as Buddy Guy, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Wynonna Judd, George Thorogood, Savoy Brown, Fastball, Buddy Whittington & the Atomic Fireballs, Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal, the Glenn Kaiser Band, and David Beegle.

The Blues Dogs are equally at home from small dives to large arenas.  They have been featured three times at the Greeley Blues Jam arena and the Thunder Mountain Amphitheater.  They’ve also been regular favorites at neighborhood events and charity fundraisers.
