presents powerful package of covers that range from jazz to acoustic
alternative folk, classic rock, country and bluegrass with three-part
harmonies that can fire up an evening for even the most eclectic and discerning
audience. The name "sundog" comes from the mountain term for a "rainbow"
of colors created by ice crystals around the sun in the high country. Like
the varied colors of a sundog, the band Sundog can please most any audience with
a fun and energetic evening of varied music Sundog is: Deanna Webb
Koebnick, Randy Kelley, Chris Koebnick,
and Ron Wheeler.
Multi-intrumentalist Randy Kelley is sure to please with his impressive command of acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin, and the ever attention-getting fiddle. Randy has performed with bands all over the U.S. and beyond, including Hawaii, Guam, the British Isles and Australia. Whether singing a backup harmony, playing a jumping fiddle tune or letting loose on soulful rock-n-roll guitar licks, many years of music-making shows in everything Randy does.
The smiling drummer for Sundog is Ron Wheeler. His experience from Denver to performing Latin and ethnic percussion, dinner theater, R&B, rock and Country and Western are evident. Rick’s upbeat positive energy, sense of humor, and precise rhythms sew the musical fabric of this band together.
Last but certainly not least is the unassuming bass player Chris Koebnick. Chris is an accomplished bass player with over 20 years of experience on fretless bass as well as fretted bass playing. Although he plays all kinds of music, jazz and funk influences are evident in his singing bass leads and stylings. Chris also rounds out the trio of vocals with Deanna and Randy for impressive harmonies.
With a songlist of hundreds songs, which makes them a
great request band, and the ability give dance instruction if the group would
like, it is obvious SUNDOG has been around the musical block. Dressed to the
nines for a formal gig or outside on a deck in shorts, SUNDOG can read the
audience and play accordingly. These veteran performers possess the stage
presence, polish, crowd-smarts and musical expertise to be counted on to “get
the party started!”
