Formed in 2011, The Sonoran Dogs have exploded upon the bluegrass scene. The “Dogs” headlined the 2014 and the 2015 Prescott Bluegrass Festivals, and headlined the 2014 Tucson Folk Festival and the 2016 Laguna Beach, CA Bluegrass BBQ.
They have performed at California’s Summergrass, Parkfield, Susanville, and Blythe Bluegrass Festivals, and for the San Diego Folk Heritage. They also performed at the Reno Nevada Bower’s Mansion Festival, and Colorado’s Fruita Fall Festival. The Sonoran Dogs are regulars at Arizona festivals in Flagstaff, Sedona, Marana, Wickenburg, Lake Havasu, and Casa Grande.
The group is made up of seasoned veterans who have come together to enjoy bluegrass music and friendship.
They play a collection of traditional bluegrass standards, new-grass, Americana, folk, Celtic, and original compositions. Every concert is different, as they often improvise the set to follow the mood of their audience. It makes for a fun and dynamic show!
