The Hardest Working Band In West Hartford!
It was June 23, 2007 and Lonesome Eddie and the Bird Dogs were invited to perform for the first time as a band at a house party in West Hartford. Under an EZ Up Tent and with no sound other than a few small amps and 1 microphone, the band played an acoustic set that many at the party could never hear. And that might have been a good thing. One thing that did happen was that the band had a blast.
Two important things happened after that first performance, the band found a drummer and the days of a strictly acoustic gig were long gone. It was time to plug in and turn up the funmeter!
Now, 7 years later, the band has performed in public at parties, fundraisers, our favorite watering holes, and even Blue Back Square in West Hartford Center on a beautiful July evening in front of over 300 people as well as Riverfest 2009 in Hartford, Ct.
Beginning in the Summer of 2011, the band has added a horn section. The Brass Puppies are veterans of the popular Hall High School Jazz Band. At each gig the band plays, the Puppies join them for a stretch of songs that are becoming the highlight of every Bird Dog gig.
The second half of 2014 is figuring to be a busy one for the band. It features the band first out of state gig on Shelter Island, NY on August 9.
If you enjoy listening to rock, blues, country, and even a little punk, you'll enjoy the antics and music of Lonesome Eddie and the Bird Dogs - The self proclaimed "Hardest working band in West Hartford".
