The Duke Street Dogs have been referred to as a “populist” band. They play a mix of old and new, original material, country and jazz, rock, Tin Pan Alley, bluegrass, and old-time. With a love of melody, an appreciation of all that’s come before, and an ability stretch their musical chops, the Duke Street Dogs mix all these elements into their live shows. The Duke Street Dogs CD is the culmination of the musical journey they all embarked on as part of Rebecca & the Hi-Tones over 30 years ago. The intent of this band is to play what each loves, with attention to the details that define the diverse material. With a playlist numbering over a thousand, the Dogs always surprise and delight with a new take on Americana.
