The Players: Greig McRitchie,
guitar, vocals; Phil Cohen, drums,
vocals; Steve (Liberty) Loria, bass,
backing vocals.
Material: Loud, simple and direct,
Dogs and Bones are a high energy
power trio whose blues rock-based
material invokes sounds like the
Rolling Stones, the Doors (sans
the organ) and even Johnny Cash.
Their lyrics are intelligent and poke
fun at love and life, similar to the
lyrical style of George Thorogood.
Set stand-outs include a Rolling
Stones’ vibe tune, “Here for You,”
and “Rescue Me,” a rockabilly
song, both of which are catchy and
possess a real commercial sound.
Musicianship: This trio comprise
a seasoned group of players who
come to the table with years of
experience. Frontman McRitchie’s
command of his guitar is striking.
He uses a formulaic approach with
his riffs, yet still manages to give Dogs and Bones: Seasoned players with crowd-pleasing appeal.
the sound a unique signature. His
voice is smooth and is perfect for
blues-style music. Sharing lead
vocals is drummer Cohen, who has
a more gritty vocal approach and is
a solid timekeeper. Blending simple
background beats with groovy lead
lines, Loria’s agility on bass serves
as the backbone of the band.
Performance: Dogs and Bones
were spot-on this evening and they
appeared to have as much fun on
stage as the audience for whom
they were performing. McRitchie
effectively played the role of cool
rock & roll frontman and Cohen
played the wild and energetic
drummer with a frenzy of beats and
flailing sticks. Loria also played it
cool wearing a top hat and making
special whoops and hollers in
addition to singing backup vocals.
Summary: Dogs and Bones present
a batch of catchy and fun
songs that are brought to life by
musicians who love to play music
and are really adept at it. Years
of experience and a true passion
for playing result in a stirring live
