Satin Dogs, named with a mixture of David Bowie's 'Diamond Dogs' and Duke Ellington's 'Satin Doll' is just as eclectic in their own music as these artists were in cultivating their sound.
The Satin Dogs are refreshing and familiar, with a blend of original material and cover tunes, that strive to create an atmosphere that accentuates the passion of music and delivering a strong Jam Band forum blended with a singer/songwriter heart, which keeps people coming back for more. The Acoustic/Soul Ensemble, Satin Dogs, are comprised of Sergio Rangel on Acoustic Guitar and Vocals, Ross Graham on Upright Bass, Chris "Shaggy" Miller on Drums, and Colin Beasley on Percussion.
Influences strongly include Stevie Wonder, The Meters, and Herbie Hancock, Dr. John and Dave Matthews, and have made a complete sound all their own.
We are striving to make our musical mark on the world because out of the few truths left, music is a medium that regardless of history, has always been a freedom in which everyone relates.
“...gentle, accessible and eclectic selection of covers and original songs. (How eclectic? ... so adept at reworking songs into its own style that it didn’t even seem weird when the players followed Jimi Hendrix’s “Crosstown Traffic” with John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery.”)”
“... the Satin Dogs’ play over a solid foundation of acoustic guitar, adding an organic edge to each track.”
““Roses” does seem like an old fashioned rock ‘n’ soul song on the first acquaintance but give it some time for Alabama band Sergio & The Satin Dogs are just doing it like it should be done. Sometimes the old ways are indeed the best.”
“Sergio & the Satin Dogs deliver top-notch music with a distinct sound you will never forget”
