LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in Laconia will host The Love Dogs on Friday, October 24 at 8 p.m. Admission is $15 and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
Take one red-hot horn section - we're talkin' alto, tenor, baritone saxes and trombone - down and dirty. Add liberal amounts of barrelhouse boogie-woogie piano and stinging Fender guitar. Pour over a funky and swinging rhythm section that Blues Review magazine called "the best in the business", and top it all off with a crazy and charismatic front man with one of the biggest blues voices around. Season with a few years on the road tearing up juke joints, festivals and concert halls across the U.S. and Canada and on both sides of the Atlantic.
Sound tasty? It's a recipe for music and mayhem, for intensity and irreverence; it's The Love Dogs. The Dogs combine elements of jump blues, New Orleans R&B and early rock 'n' roll into their own powerhouse sound. The band's lineup consists of Scheer, Alizon Llssance (keyboards, vocals), Myanna (alto/tenor sax, vocals), Glenn Shambroom (guitar, baritone sax), Randy Bramwell (bass, vocals), Steve Brown (drums, vocals), along with part time Dogs Mario Perrett (tenor sax/vocals), Mark Paquin (tenor sax, trombone) and old friend "SAX" Gordon Beadle (tenor and baritone sax). Voted "Best New England Band" by Blues Audience magazine.
Catered dinner buffet available before the show. Call 527-0043 for details and reservations. www.pitmansfreightroom.com
