The Blues DoGS
The Blues DoGS Show Band (Disciples of Gods Son) started over 15 years ago as a Christian blues band.
As our music was heard , our popularity grew we were called on to do larger and larger events . These new challenges demanded that we add different genres and songs to our set lists so we could help make these larger and larger events successful.
We were then asked to open a major blues festival and at the same time to open for the sensational Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
The decision was made at that time to add a horn section so our energy and music would serve these events in a bigger and more powerful way.
This was the start of the Horn DoGS , our beloved horn section.
Having this fantastic horn section makes us unique and we became even more popular with the largest events in Northern Colorado.
With these new larger events we added more interesting ,challenging , and unusual songs to our musical retrepoiur.
Whether its Christian blues/rock, big band, swing , funk, gospel, country/rock, rock, R&B ,or blues you desire the Blues DoGS Show Band has you covered.
Our unique horn sound, tight vocal harmonies , unbelievably talented crew of solo artists on guitar, harmonica , keyboard coupled with two powerful lead singers will hold you spell bound at times and always make you want to dance .
Yet through all of these wonderful semi forced evolutions of band members , musical genres and event changes the Blues DoGS Show Band holds true to our Christian philanthropic roots and the ideal of using our God given talents and passions for music , people, fun and service to serve others while having the time of our musical lives. You’ll be hard pressed to have more fun than the band at our shows.
