The Rhythm Dawgs

 Austin, Texas, USA
BandBluesClassic Rock

Part British Rock, part Texas Blues, and all good. It's rock-n-roll from Austin, TX that's not afraid to have a good time. Imagine The Stones and BB King going to Joe Walsh's house to listen to Hank Williams records....yeah, you get it now!


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 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.
