It was a hot Saturday night and every hotter inside Neumann’s Bar in North St. Paul. I went to see the great Blues band Bluedog. Where ever they go they rock the house down. With their mix of blues and Minnesota sound music. I was not surprised that after talking to the band, that most of the music they sing on stage is their own music. They are famous throughout the five-state area. We are blessed to have Bluedog in our area. Whatever I write would not describe the musical magic experience you will get when you listen to their music.
I had been invited to watch the band by an old-time friend and drummer of the Bluedog band Greg. I’ve known Greg for about 15-20 years. If you do not have a great drummer in the band, the music is off. Greg keeps the band on tempo.
Tom is Bluedog’s bass guitar player. I found him very fun, amusing and played the guitar with skill, love that showed in each pluck of the string. The lead guitar player Eric! Eric is Mr. magic on the lead guitar the music from the lead guitar is from Angels from about. It is good because the two female singers are mother and daughter duel, Joni and Alex.
Each mother and daughter singing alone or together with pizzazz! Both have each their own style of singing. Alex also plays the keyboard with vibrations I have never seen. A very unique sound and blessing to my ears. You never be disappointed by listening and dancing to their music. I loved Joni voice the lead singer. Her voice is a pleasant experience and beautiful to listen to. You can feel the emotion in each song when Joni sings.
I love the music that permanents at Neumann’s Bar that night. Only the best bands play at Neumann’s Bar. Bluedog didn’t miss a beat, and the energy can be felt in each of their songs. They are a Blues band but play a variety of music genre, all I might say exceptional well! I think that is why they have won many awards. I will not repeat them in this blog. You can find more about Bluedog at the end of the blog in the links provided.
I give Bluedog five stars in music, five stars in tempo and movement of new music sound, five stars in entertainment. They are in the top 10 bands in the five-state area in my opinion. It is an honor to write these few words about you Bluedog!
