Dr. Dan and the Stray Dogs
The Stray Dogs Band play popular, classic rock ’n’ roll songs from the ’60s to the ’80s—popular songs that have stood the test of time. Stuff that everybody knows, can sing along with, and dance to. Because of that, we appeal to a wide variety of audiences and everybody has a good time wherever we play.
Although the core of The Stray Dogs Band is a three-piece with guitar, drums, and bass, we usually include a fourth member for improving the sound. Cincinnati’s best guitarist, Scotty Anderson, frequently plays lead guitar for us and does he ever! Scotty has won numerous guitar player competitions for jazz and country, hailed by Guitar One magazine as one of “America’s 10 Best Unknown Guitarists,” nderson has recorded three CDs to date, two of which are available through J Curve Records and from www.scottyandersonguitar.com. In addition to recording, Scotty worked for a music products manufacturer throughout the 1980s and ’90s, performing at NAMM shows and clinics across the country. His concert performances have included playing for the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society in Paris, the Massachusetts Folk Festival in Boston, and opening up for the Doobie Brothers.
Looking East: A Jackson Browne Tribute Band is a Cincinnati-based band dedicated to playing the timeless music of Jackson Browne. Browne, an American singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the 1970s, blends great lyrics and stellar music, and that is why he is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and winner of the Steinbeck Award, among other honors. As one of the first to sign with Geffen Records, he led the way for The Eagles, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt and the rest of the singer-songwriters and bands out of southern California.
Looking East was formed in 2010 by drummer Peter Wimberg (a Browne enthusiast who has met the legendary musician on three separate occasions) and consists of seven talented musicians and vocalists: Mark Bauer (guitar), Ed O’Donnell (guitar), Paul Saas (bass), Chris Hazelwood (keys, lead vocals), Peter Wimberg (drums), Danielle Daniels (vocals) and Cara Nicolas (vocals). The ultimate goal of Looking East is to perform the music as originally written with not only male lead vocals but also females in light of the many who have covered his songs, from Linda Ronstadt to Bonnie Raitt to Emmylou Harris. Every detail of the music, from the intricate guitar riffs to the soulful backing vocals, is carefully replicated. The band spent a solid year rehearsing and perfecting each song before performing for the first time in public; now, they are eager to share Browne’s incredible music with the community.
The selection of music played by Looking East spans Browne's entire career, from Saturate Before Using to Time the Conqueror, including all of the classics and some of the more obscure (but still rockin’) songs. The music of Jackson Browne can be appreciated by all, as every one of Browne’s songs tells a story from his life to which anyone can easily relate.
