Bone Doggie and the Hickory Street Hellra... / Bio

A whiskey voice, lightning fingers, and a strong love of the theatrical are a only few ways to describe this 25 year veteran of countless Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz and Progressive bands. Drawing from an awash of diverse influences ranging from Robert Johnson, Miles Davis, the Stray Cats, Led Zeppelin and Danny Elfman, Bone Doggie’s bold, brash and often “Tim Burton-esque” approach to rock music culminates into a highly entertaining mixture of murder, mayhem and good old-fashioned family fun.

And what can you say about the Hickory Street Hellraisers?
Living up to their namesake, the Hellraisers are a peppery bunch of highly talented and highly spirited musicians. With the vast and diverse talents of Abby “The Duchess” Messerli on trombone, Kris “El Chupa” Cordell on drums, "The Bret Crow Show" on Bass, "Magic" Matt Cochran on Keyboards and Sax, and Kebeer "Red Light" Leekah on Guitar...the Hickory Street Hellraisers tend to have a “bigger than life” sound.
"I'd stack this rag-tag bag of miscreants up against ANYBODY"...says Doggie..."They can play anything you can throw at them, and do it with style."

All this mixed together makes a Bone Doggie Show truly an event. That is if you’re into a toe tappin’, finger snappin, hand clappin’, Wang Dang Doodle of an evening.

Doggie’s bouzouki was built by W.A. Peterson
