Record Label

In early 2008, Michael Wright, Mark Glisson and Derek Castello; former members of the Legendary Groove Monsters teamed up with Russ Kellum of the popular band Tru Bluez to form the Bone Dogs.

All very accomplished musicians in their own right, it was quickly obvious there was a musical chemistry between them from the very first jam session. Not at all interested in being just another band they focused themselves on performance, dynamics and improvisation. Drawing songs from their past set lists and bringing in many new songs as well as constantly writing originals, the Bone Dogs developed an extremely loyal fan base and quickly became the talk of Brevard County for their live shows. These weren’t a night of the hits, these were concerts fit for big stages..which was always their goal.

In the short time the band has been together they have had the honor to play with Pat Travers, Dangerous Dan Toler of the Greg Allman Band, Todd Sharpville, Jason Ricci, Leanne Binder and Michael Allman; Greg’s son. They also have attracted interest from an independent label as well as former Brevard resident and highly accomplished and sought after Los Angeles studio musician Paul Ill who will be producing their first studio recording this summer.

They have headlined at the Band Shell in Daytona, the Southern Social Experiment festival in Rome, Ga, the Steve Miller Biker Blues Bash in Brevard, played the prestigious Melbourne Art Festival and opened for one of their favorite bands Gov’t Mule on August 1st 2010.

The Bone Dogs are one of the hardest working bands based in Brevard doing roughly 140 shows a year including the weekly Jam they host at Wynfield’s Sports Bar in Satellite Beach.
