Tom has been playing guitar for over 30 years. He has a wide range of musical interest as you can see from the song list. He brings a lot to the band with his guitar playing, vocals, and back up harmonies as well as his years of experience. He is the bands glue!
He plays Carvin, Fender, Ovation,Taylor and Peavy guitars. Uses D'Addario electric, Elixir acoustic strings, Carvin, Quilter and Line6 amps.
As the bands original drummer Joe not only brought his years of experience behind the kit and in the industry, but his vocals and unique personality will be greatly appreciated by the fans.
Carl is the final piece to the Stray Dog puzzle. With his many years of experience and his down to earth attitude he is a great fit to the band. Joe, and I (Tom) grew up with Carl in Loudon and have had many adventures together from grade school to baseball to high school. But I am looking forward to this more than any of them. Welcome Carl!
