KC Rain Dogs / Bio

The Rain Dogs are talented musicians who have come together to share a love of American roots music.

From rumbling, boogie-woogie piano runs to shut up-rattling resonator guitars, they shake up audiences and shake any perceived dust off the sounds of old rock, blues and country, reclaiming and reviving the work of acts such as Bessie Smith, Sam Chatmon, Muddy Waters and Bonnie Raitt while also delivering spry originals. "Acoustic guitar and upright piano with a genuine washboard beat — it’s what jazz sounded like before it had a name, and history never sounded so good."
