The beginning is not so far from the end, but it’s never in silence, so the philosophy is to create good music. A drumbeat that punches groove into your stomach, and a bassline that sweeps your feet. Something refreshing, yet familiar in a way that can bring you into states of passion and anger, joy and fear, compassion and forgetfulness. Since their formation, the Acoustic/ Soul Ensemble, Satin Dogs has delivered their own music in such a way that is as spaced out as the name itself. Derived from Duke Ellington’s ‘Satin Doll’ and David Bowie’s ‘Diamond Dogs, the taken promenade has generated the luxury for the ensemble Satin Dogs to find a hole of music, dig in a bit, and come out with some more flavors for the mind to grab a taste. Satin Dogs consist of Upright/Electric Bass and Vocalist Ross Graham, Congas and Percussion Colin Beasley, Drums and Percussion Chris “Shaggy” Miller, and Acoustic Guitar and Vocalist Sergio Rangel. Creating an atmosphere of fullness, Satin Dogs sets the emotional gravity to extend a graceful hand taking you through the guttural moments that give each song its own world but is a collaboration of experiences that both Satin Dogs and their audiences relate. From ‘Voodoo Queen’ the masquerade of a beautiful person with a twisted mind, wrapped in the curse of their own creation, to ‘Love Loss’ the question of, how can you see me when I can’t see myself? But that is love and loss. Lawrence Specker, from AL.com, had once said about a couple of cover songs Satin Dogs had done “…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.”)”
Believe none of what you hear, or you must see it to believe it, either way, don’t just take someone’s word for it, give yourself the opportunity to experience the atmosphere of Satin Dogs. It isn’t the white rabbit leading you through wonderland this time.
