POLICE DOG HOGAN

Princess Pavilion - 27 Apr 2017 08:00 PM - 10:30 PM

Foot-stomping live music from Police Dog Hogan

Police Dog Hogan are a high-energy and eclectic eight-piece, combining fiddle, trumpet, mandolin, drums and guitars with knockout four-part harmonies in an exuberant and genre-defying fusing of country, pop, folk, and rocking urban bluegrass. Much-loved Guardian columnist Tim Dowling adds his banjo to the musical mix.

The Sunday Times has described them as “wonderful”; the Telegraph named them one of its ‘favourite new bands”; Mark Radcliffe on Radio 2 said a “great night out was guaranteed” at their joyful shows; and veteran DJ Johnnie Walker praises their gigs as “a really good, fun time”.

Eliot James (of Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party, Noah and the Whale, and Two Door Cinema Club fame) produced the band’s second CD, and Al Scott (Seth Lakeman, Oysterband, The Levellers, Asian Dub Foundation) oversaw the new album, ‘Wild By the Side of the Road’, which has spent several weeks in the official UK Americana charts.

Police Dog Hogan were one of only three UK bands invited to Nashville to perform at the prestigious Americana Music Association Awards, where DJ Bob Harris – in town for the awards – snapped them up for a recording that has become one of the most-watched YouTube videos on his “Under the Apple Tree Sessions” channel.

Last year they appeared at Glastonbury for the first time, playing to a packed house on one of the major stages (Avalon). In July they are among the headliners on the main stage at Cornbury Festival. Most shows on their last tour, from London, Bristol, Liverpool and Exeter to Salisbury’s City Hall, have sold out and been rapturously received. “Pure unadulterated entertainment” and a “band really not to be missed” was the verdict from the critic of Maverick Magazine.
