"New Tricks New Pride of Austin"

“The new pride of Austin, Texas, the Rhythm Dawgs, are resurrecting the spirit of the Arc Angels on their second CD, New Tricks.

There are lots of big riffed rhythm guitars, scorching slide guitars and down and dirty lyrics. Hell, Shut Up and Drink should be the national anthem for anybody sick of the Cliff Claven loudmouth of your local watering hole. Business of Life combines sweet arpeggios with big riffs and both Anna Marie and So Lonely have such singalong choruses, they should be illegal.

Their version of TheThrill Is Gone leaves the listener begging for more.” - Richard Amery, Kenora Daily Miner and News


"New Tricks - It's All Good"

The band's numerous influences, from Foghat to Freddie King, come through with a dash of Texas roadhouse attitude. If you're a fan of guitar-based rock that's got a good dose of the blues thrown in for good measure, the check out 'New Tricks' from The Rhythm Dawgs.

With the assistance of Ex-Storyville/Double Trouble vocalist Malford Milligan and engineer-extraordinaire Mark Donovan, the band's live energy has finally been captured on CD.

Bio

The Rhythm Dawgs are a band made up of four guys from completely different corners of the musical universe. Take a blues influenced bass player, team him up with a country-rock drummer. Add a formally trained lead guitarist, and throw in another guitar player who grew up on a steady diet of AC/DC and Grand Funk. Who could have known that what would come out would be a crowd-pleasing entertainment package that mixes electric blues, classic rock, a little country, and some primetime TV for good measure.

The Rhythm Dawgs have been honing their craft on Texas stages since 1999. With 3 CDs and hundreds of live performaces under their belts, the band knows how to put on a show...not just stand around and churn out songs. The audience in drawn into the performance.

With a sound that is equal parts Texas Blues and British Rock, the Dawgs take the best of the past and make it their own. Whether it's a rock-n-roll classis from the 70's, a gritty blues tune, or one of their originals...you know it's The Rhythm Dawgs.

If you're looking for a slick, upscale, polished production...then this isn't the band for you. But if you're in the market for a band made up of four ordinary guys who just happen to be some extraordinary musicians, then call the Dawgs.
