This is a tight 4 or 5 piece jump and R&B band – they’ve been together for over 20 years, and this is their first appearance in Gloucester!
Show em some love!
Dave B and the Hot Shots
This 5 piece group performing authentic interpretations of vintage R&B Jump Blues/New Orleans music from the late ‘40s through the mid ‘60s, was formed in the early ‘90s and retains three of it’s original members, Dave Birkin – sax/vocals, Mark Shelford – guitar/vocal, and Ken Steiner – acoustic bass/vocal. The current line up also includes Richard Malcolm – drums, and Jim Heffernan – keys.
In the early to mid ‘90s the group worked steadily in Fanuil Hall Market place at Cricket’s and The Marketplace Café. The group became active again in the mid 2000’s. For the past 2 ½ years the band has enjoyed a residency at a Worcester club “The Sahara” and semi-annual stints for Swing City in Somerville and Cambridge.

Brad Byrd with Donnie (Sheldon) Knowles and Ricky Rocket…
I heard some of the most beautiful music from this band. The kind that makes you heart swell…When I walked into the room and saw the soft lighting and Brad singing solo it gave me the best feeling…Brad Byrd is one that I could listen to for forever. They are going to be at the Dog Bar for four more weeks. That’s if I heard correctly. Must see must hear.
Dan King is back in town and KBMG is going to rock your world at the Dog Bar this Friday night. Master musicians under one roof and offering up a great variety of songs. Ones that you will be able to sing along to and dance to as well.
