The Love Dogs, Heavy Petting

by Sarah Zupko

 

Not just another band of hepcat posers, Boston’s Love Dogs is the real swinging deal. Their brand of frenetic, head shaking, toe tapping, jump blues is swing to be sure, but it’s got a heaping helping of good old time rock and roll as well. E. Duato Scheer has a soulful voice that lends a credible R&B edge to the band’s sound and the instrumentalists just plain cook. Sax solos have a real Sam Butera (Louis Prima’s band) flair and Alison Lissance’s piano is by turns steamy, smoky, and wild.
