"Kansas City Local Artist"

"Most of my family would love this country-rock band and each song I listened to made me like them more. They have a good house band sound and I could tell just by listening to them that they would put on an entertaining show. I can see them playing a lot of outdoor venues and even large events because of their pure and loud country sound. Definitely worth checking out. "

"The Silas Dogan Band was "SMOKIN""

Just wanted to say that The Silas Dogan Band was "SMOKIN" Tues night at Sweetwoods. Guitars, Bass and drums had a great mix, lead guitar rides were cutting through the mix and the harmony vocals were great. Especially enjoyed the original tune "STAND MY GROUND" that is a tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan. That tune really has balls. Great job. You are fortunate to have really good solid players. Thanks for the enjoyable evening. - Leavenworth Music Reviews

The Silas Dogan Band is Country Rockin’ Blues music. It’s like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Waylon Jennings and The Marshall Tucker Band all showed up to the same Jam session
Pronounced Sie’lus Doe’gun the Band takes its name from band founder Dave Barnett’s grandfather, lifelong Yell County Arkansas inhabitant.
These guys have been around for a while. They grew up in the 70’s. Kansas boys with a passion for the sounds of Southern Rock, Blues and Outlaw Country music. They look at their age not as a barrier but an opening to create the music they have always loved and the music that is making a strong come back in the underground genre of Red Dirt music. Mark Roberts “We don’t mind sounding old school, that’s who we are and we’re proud of it.” Their songs are about truth and life. They share their stories of the good times and bad ones with the influence and experience of learning from and emulating the greats. If you’re looking for the next Justin Bieber, then this band ain’t for you. Good ol’ boys out havin’ a good ol’ time playin’ the real music you love.
“I will never give up” says Dave “All my life I had tried to be what someone else thought I should be, but when the cards hit the floor, the only one left face up was the music card.”

The Silas Dogan Band was formed in January of 2007. Originally known as Smokin Gun, the band has been through a lot of changes over the last 4 years. But none of those changes came with any "bridges burned". Fortunately all "ex" members are still good friends with the band and have helped with the bands continued success in one way or another. We would like to make a special mention of one of the early members Wayne Jordan, who passed in recent years, long time bandmate and friend.
Our FAQs - Why the name change and what does Silas Dogan mean?
With so many "Smokin Gun" bands (in one form or another) on the internet, it became clear, that to stand out as a music creator, a change had to made. The best way to do this is to have a unique name. One that is unlikely to be duplicated. Dave's Grandfather's name was Silas Dogan Barnett. Well, if the name Silas Dogan is not uncommon I don't know what is.
It is also fitting that Silas Dogan lived his entire life in Yell County Arkansas, where the red dirt of the area is well known, as the band strives to make its mark in the Red Dirt genre.
Slias was Father, Grandfather and Great Grandfather to countless musicians, seriously, too many to count. So it is a fitting tribute to the WW1 Veteran who returned home to Havana City, Ark on a train where he saw for the first time, the girl who would become his lifetime partner, friend and wife, Callie Mae Owens. They lived at the foot of Magazine Mountain, the highest point in the Boston Mountain range, in a share croppers house. Tin roof, pot belly wood stove, wood burning cook stove, well water drawn by hand and of course the two seater out house. Silas was a Trapper by trade but also worked as cotton farm hand.
Our music is about life and truth. The good, the bad and the ugly
