“Dave Dorman and Chris Canning are the power plant who are Dog Gone South, one of the hardest working blues outfits in the south.
Dave drives the guitar, double stomps and vocals, Chris put the icing on the cake with the harmonica.
With over 120 gigs under their belt in the past 12 months alone, the guys clock up over 30,000kms per year gigging around Victoria and interstate.
Their new album ‘Bring Ya Foot and Stomp It’ is due for release in May. To celebrate the boys have hooked up a 4 week tour in July starting in Northern Victoria, then onto Far North Queensland, then winding down the coast and finishing in Byron Bay.
Dog Gone South’s musical style is unique, taking in old country style blues to thumping it out Chicago style, putting their own stamp and flair on it. Their sound is bigger than the sum of it’s parts and guaranteed to get the joint jumpin’, and yet they are just as comfortable with the foot off the juice in a low key environment, such as a winery on a Sunday afternoon.
They will be supporting one of the great Australian music icons, Phil Manning, at The Piping Hot Chicken shop on May 30th. They will also be appearing at The Wodonga Blues Festival and The Melbourne Docklands Festival later in the year with more in the barrell. They are also the main stay performers on the successful Geelong Blues Cruise aboard the Hygeia Party Boat, Little Creatures Brewery and a list of others. They will also be touring along the Murray to Mildura as well as Tasmania before year’s end.”
