About Us

About the Hound Dogs


 Our upbeat, happy shows entertain audiences from kids to seniors.  We're  three veteran performers who have played at festivals, senior  facilities, libraries and town events and have also appeared on TV and  radio programs.  Our goal is to always leave people smiling and happier  than they were were when we got there. 

What we play


 We play toe-tappin' swing standards and upbeat blues and jazz from the  20s, 30s and 40s as well as new tunes and funny originals in foot-stompin' washboard band style.  Our shows include ukulele, guitar, kazoo, harmonica, mandolin, banjo, washboard, jug and spoons.  Where  else can you hear a solo played on spoons? 

What we do


 We  engage audiences with sing-a-longs, trivia questions, jokes and by  letting people play the percussion instruments we bring along.  We also  have exciting educational programs for kids or adults on playing  washboards, spoons, jammin' on the jug and even how to play a paper bag!  Some Washboard/Jug band history and Folk Song Tradition is included in these fun filled sessions.
