Inquiring minds want to know just who is Bone Doggie?

A whiskey voice, lightning fingers, and a strong love of the nostalgic are a few ways to describe this 25 year veteran of

Bone Doggie and the Hickory Street Hellraisers

countless Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz and Progressive bands. Drawing from influences ranging from Robert Johnson, to Miles Davis to Led Zeppelin, Bone Doggie’s bold, brash and often “Tim Burton-esque”  approach to acoustic music culminates into a highly entertaining mixture of murder, mayhem and good old-fashioned family fun.

As for the Irish Bouzouki; “Lots of Irish in this bloodline.” says Doggie. “And I like playing an instrument that is a bit off the beaten track. The bouzouki has such an old-timey sound to it. The thing just rocks.” (Doggie’s bouzouki was built by W.A. Peterson, www.petersenstringshop.com.)

And what can you say about the Hickory Street Hellraisers?

Living up to their namesake, the Hellraisers are a peppery bunch of highly talented and highly spirited musicians. With the vast and diverse talents of Christopher “Ghost” Morehead on guitar and keyboards, Carrek “Bam Bam” Coleman on bass, Abby “The Duchess” Messerli on trombone, Aaron “Skwiggels” Price on percussion, and Kris “El Chupa” Cordell on drums, the Hickory Street Hellraisers tend to have a “bigger than life” sound.

All this mixed together makes a Bone Doggie Show truly an event. That is if you’re into a toe-tappin’, finger-snappin’, hand-clappin’, Wang Dang Doodle of an evening.
