The party doesn’t begin until Shelter Dogs start howlin’ at the moon!  You’ll want to jump up and dance, shake your tail, or do anything but roll over and play dead.  Featuring a strong focus on Funky arrangements of classic favorites, it’s high energy on a long leash.  The Shelter Dogs are all adopted veterans from a deep roster of the North Shore and Chicago Area music notables, known for being loyal to the groove.  This musical depth allows for customized theme shows fetching musical surprises from Sinatra to The Pretenders, Santana to Van Morrison. While sociable, they do add an aggressive twist to the music you love.

Plus, they are mostly housetrained.


Greg Diethrich, John Edison, Todd lazar, Bill Pantle, Christine Mathy, Mitch "the Lip" Goldman, Gary Kretchmer, & Michael Willens.  Joined by Bill LeClaire, Michael Whalen, Ken Johnson, JB Bustillos and others.

In loving memory of Mark Tulloss.
