Description

Price from: £350.00

The band have been playing for over three years in their current 3-piece set up, having 'morphed' from an original 5-piece blues band. As a 3-piece they can more easily 'fit' into smaller venues. However, they can call on additional musicians if the occasion calls for it.

Old Dogs R&B Band

A Special Band For Your Special Event

Old Dogs are three experienced musicians who do a lot more than just 'stand there and play'. We aim to entertain our audience by involving them throughout our lively set. Our usual playing time would be two x one and a half hour sets with a short break, however, this is negotiable. We play a mix of numbers - one or two you might never have heard before - and some real get-up-and-boogie crowd-pleasers, including a couple from a very well-known movie about a Blues Band! The clue could be in the hats? We are constantly updating our already varied set list because we don't want our audience, or ourselves, to get stuck in a musical rut. It's all about having fun with a style of music that's about as alive as anything you will hear. We play the music that the audience likes to hear - not just what we want to play, from foot-tapping dance numbers to slow blues for those who like a smooch. Please ask if you have a special number you'd like us to play - If we CAN - we WILL!
