Feed the Dog

Performing Thursday, June 27

Once in a while, a band comes along that defies categorization, and Feed the Dog is just such a band. Hailing from the Midwest, this dynamic quartet seamlessly blends an eclectic mix of genres, including jam, bluegrass, soul, funk, and Americana, into a singular sound that is uniquely their own. At the core of Feed the Dog’s music lies a lyrical sensibility that is both cerebral and emotive, with an emphasis on crafting vivid imagery and thought-provoking narratives that resonate deeply with their audience.

This eclectic and action-packed, experimental jam-grass act is a Midwest-based four-piece that masterfully blends soul-pleasing songwriting with a genre-bending, shake-your-hips instrumental flair. Their high-energy performances are driven by the unique and progressive approach of each player: imaginative melodies with graceful ambiance skillfully crafted on the violin, tireless beats both dynamic and soulful confidently assembled on the drums, driving low end with finesse and intention forged on the bass guitar, and unique approach to playing the acoustic guitar blending fast picking bluegrass runs with the strength of blues and rock to evoke an emotional contrast between melancholy and hopeful.

Whether they’re performing live or in the studio, Feed the Dog always brings their A game, delivering high-energy performances that leave audiences breathless. It’s this unique blend of styles, skills, and musical vision that has made Feed the Dog one of the most exciting and talked-about bands on the scene today.The band started in July of 2015 and has been relentlessly playing festivals, theaters, and clubs alongside regional and national touring acts. “Ding Dang,” the band’s third full-length album, was released in September 2021.
