SunDog officially enters its 20th year of rocking Northern New England!

Yep, we've had some lineup changes over the years, bought a fleet of band vehicles, played a lot of clubs, made a lot of great friends and suffered a few setbacks, but we're still having as much fun as ever!

No matter what, we still strive to entertain you and make you forget about life for a while, even if it's just for a few hours.

Happy 20th anniversary band guys!

Added another new club! December 12th at Bentley's Saloon in Arundel!
This show is from 8PM to Midnight, so if you arrive later on in the evening, you'll miss out!


We've just received the sad news that Charlie's Entertainment Center in Norway will be closing its doors forever in the early Fall (Charlie thinks he could make it to the end of September). SUNDOG will be making its final Norway performances on September 19th and 20th...

Charlie will be running all kind of "crazy drink specials" so they could sell off the existing stock of liquor and beer, so c'mon and party with Charlie and the SUNDOG crew one last time!!!
For those of you who are curious, SUNDOG has performed at Charlie's 44 times previously, going all the way back to February of 2003. We've had some really great nights and HUGE crowds, plus some really bad nights (that's right, FUCK YOU Oxford Plains 250!!!)... Through it all, we've always maintained a great business relationship and friendship that has lasted a long time. After playing clubs in Maine for almost 15 years, we can definitely say that Charlie is truely one of the nicest guys in the business and we wish him the best with whatever is next!


I know it's a bit early to be making plans for later on in the year, but SUNDOG has just confirmed NEW YEARS EVE at Club OTR in Augusta!!!

Also, SUNDOG will be hosting OTR's gigantic Halloween costume party on Friday, October 31st!


It is finally confirmed that SUNDOG will be appearing at the Bath Heritage Days festival on July 5th on the main stage from 2 - 4 PM!!! This free show in the heart of Bath will not dissapoint! Click HERE for more details.


C'mon out to Cuddy's on 5/5/08 for their big Cinco De Mayo party! SUNDOG will be playing all of your favorite classic rock tunes from 7 - 11PM!

On advice from our attorney, we are NOT responsible for criminal or civil damages if you don't make to work on Tuesday morning.


Added a new club! November 1st at the Green Room in Sanford.


Added 3 new 2008 shows at Club OTR in Augusta: June 7th, July12th and October 11th.



Flyer for the upcoming March 29th benefit show in Bath:


This past Friday (February 29th) at Cuddy's Tavern, SUNDOG performed one single FOUR-HOUR set of music with no breaks!!! That's right, 9PM until 1AM, continuous music, no breaks!

Former SUNDOG members Diamond Dave Osborne (currently performing with Smoked Salmon) and Bill Irish (currently performing with Educating Einstein) were on hand to help out with the efforts. Bob Rox was also in attendence but did not perform, due to the fact that he is slowly recovering from a freak lawn-mowing accident that involved a twister mat, two gallons of Mazola cooking oil and a midget...

MIA were Melanie Huard and Robbie Doucette.

Special thanks to Bill McKenna from Ruckus for filling in on guitar for Doug for a few songs, while Doug took a well-deserved piss break!

Now we can definitely say that SUNDOG performed one of the longest sets in Maine club history!


On Leap Year Night (February 29th), SUNDOG will be reuniting all five of its former members (with the current five!) at Cuddy's Tavern in Brunswick for a marathon set of music from 9PM until 12:45AM. We'll be playing tunes from our current setlist and a few old favorites that we haven't played in quite some time (some songs, literally, a decade!). Former members that will be on hand to play:

"Diamond" Dave Osbourne (Bass)
Bill Irish (Bass)
Melanie Huard (Guitar)
Robbie Dewset (Vocals)

Bobby Rox will even be in the house for a while, but will only be able to stop by for a little bit due to a conflict, so it's unlikely he'll be playing, but hey, at least he'll be showing up!

Either way, be sure to c'mon and check out SUNDOG do something that we've never done before! After all, a leap year night on a weekend doesn't happen all that often!
Cuddy's is located at 103 Pleasant Street in Brunswick, for more info: call (207) 725-2977



Another new club! We have just confirmed March 1st at Club On The Rocks. This club is located in the former Hazel Green's nightclub building on Water Street in downtown Augusta. Directions and club info are available here: Club On The Rocks Website


New pics from the 12/15/07 Montsweag Roadhouse show, the 2007 New Year's Eve show at the Outback Pub and the 1/26/08 show at The Nostaglia Pub are now online! Check 'em out at The SUNDOG Pictures Page. We are sad to inform everyone that one of Central Maine's coolest club is closing it's doors. Wiseguys (located in Waterville) will be closing at the end of the month, so obviously all of our dates have been cancelled. Best of luck to Mike, Nick and the Wiseguys crew!!!

SUNDOG has a new member!!! Attached below is Marc's announcement from the SUNDOG MySpace page:

All of us are pleased to announce the addition of keyboardist/vocalist GERALD BRANN to the SUNDOG lineup! Gerald brings to the band 25 years of experience performing as a professional musician and has a degree in Jazz piano from the University of Maine. He's played in the bands "The Barking Spiders", "Ultimate Sin" (Ozzy tribute), and "The Deal", but he's probably best known as "Elton" in the Elton John tribute act "Yellow Brick Road". He is considered one of the premiere Elton John tribute musicians in North America and has performed throughout the United States and Canada. Don't worry, nobody has left the band. It's just that what was once four is now five. Gerald has toured with us tons of times as a sound tech, so we've already tested his road stamina. Marc will continue as the main lead vocalist with Chad also singing a handful of songs every night. Bringing Gerald into the band broadens our ability to deliver to you a great show and gives us the ability to play a ton of songs that we've always wanted to play, but couldn't because of keyboard limitations. We're a pretty tight ship over here as far as who we let into the inner circle. Bringing in a fifth member was never even on the radar screen until we stumbled across Gerald. Individually Marc, Chad, and Gerald with their pipes and stage experience could be front men for almost any band in the northeast. SUNDOG now has all three. This means a better show for YOU. We're very excited about our new addition and we hope you'll continue to come check us out as you have for years. Through the grapevine I've heard that Gerald has been making great strides at rehearsals. (We don't actually ever rehearse together as a band; we hire a temp agency to do it for us). So as far as I know Gerald could be making his debut as early as this weekend at Cuddy's in Brunswick and Wise Guys in Waterville. Details to follow. I want to thank you all for continuing to come hang with us for all the years we've been at this. We cherish all of our friends greatly, and hope that you'll continue to support us as we make this new "fuel-injected" transition. I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed!!!


Happy 2008 to everyone!!!Pics from the 12/29 Fifties Pub shows are now online!Pics from the New Year's Eve show at the Outback coming soon!

Hey folks... Just got word that 2 of the clubs that had booked SUNDOG have permanently closed. The Tillbury Town Tavern in Gardiner and Right Proper Charlie's Pub in Portland have both closed their doors for good.

Well after about a month-long break, SUNDOG has finally got back at it, returning to "Cuddy's" in Brunswick, on Friday the 11th.But that's not the big news...Did you think that was the big news? Did you? Huh? Chill out dudes... Like WTF?!?

There's been yet another lineup change in SUNDOG. From now on the bass guitar will be held down by Chad Dacus, one of the founding members of SUNDOG waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the mid 90's! Chad has played rhythm guitar, bass guitar and has done both lead and background vocals... I wonder if he plays drums? Hmmmm, he'd better not, or I'm out of a job.

Anyways, we're all excited as a duck in water (pig in shit, Douggie with a Kit-Kat bar and milk) that Chad has returned to the group after a 5 year hiatus!

We'd also like to add that we wish Bill Irish all the best of luck in the future. He's an amazing talent and a great guy, and we're going to miss his presence every weekend, both on the stage and off. He's been a blast to be around these past few years, and certainly helped bring the band to a higher level.

Stay in touch, bro.

I'll be trying to post as much SUNDOG content as possible, as often as I can...Remember the more you drink, the better we sound!!!
