Pedigree

Howling DogBluesy but not too serious, Dangerous Dogs are:

  • Frank Johnson guitar, vocals, writing and arranging
  • Nigel Lawson harp, megaphone, vocals and writing
  • Andrew Chorlton bass, vocals, occasional wobbleboard!
  • Brian Rodwell percussion, djembe, washboard, kajon

We play a wide range of stuff from old country blues from the 30s, to stuff “wot we just wrote”. On the way we dabble with a little Chuck Berry, a pinch of Fats Waller, a spoonful of Willie Dixon, a jar of Jimmy Reed, and a sprinkle of the wonderful Wiyos (check ‘em out!).

Dangerous Dogs LiveA live set never stays in the same genre for long. “Memphis Tennessee” may be followed by “Dirty Old Town” and then “Ain’t Misbehaving” by “Bare Necessities” and “Bright Lights, Big City”. We play for fun, and hopefully people who see us get caught up in the fun too!

P.S. We are not that dangerous, we are fully house trained!

Dangerous Dogs are available for bookings around Loughborough, Leicestershire and surrounding areas of The Midlands. If you have a gig you’d like us to play at, please get in touch.
