Still working on that hot first release.



With roots in rockabilly, 1980's pop, and mainstream rock, The Rain Dogs perform original songs which are dramatic, dynamic, stylish, and accessible.

For over three decades, audiences have been engaged by singer-songwriter-guitarist Bruce Bigford's powerful vocal style, unique perspective, and signature Gretch electric guitars.

Now performing with The Rain Dogs, Bruce continues to write memorable, emotionally-charged songs which reflect the roller-coaster of real life.

Bassist Mike Briney, keyboardist Jenny Lynn, and drummer Mike Holton supply the band's sonic texture and tight dynamics - emotional momentum to keep the coaster moving.

From Celtic-inspired punk-rock drinking anthems to sweeping epics about stalking, The Rain Dogs project a memorable and moving presence. When Bruce encourages crowds to "Drink and drink and drink and drink, and then you'll drink some more", they often do. And when the band blasts a swing groove and Bruce sings about his "Goth-a-billy Baby", everyone knows what he means - even if they don't.

Fans have also come to love the band's twisted covers of popular favorites. The Rain Dogs know no sacred ground; de-constructing and re-imagining classics by David Bowie, The Eurythmics, Johnny Cash, Weezer, and The Clash, among many more.

The Rain Dogs love being a versatile live band, and they wear their hearts on their sleeves every show. In recent years, their authenticity has been welcomed by audiences at punk rock showcases, city festivals, rock-a-billy nights, outdoor music festivals, biker bars, art-hops, and house parties.
