A New Chapter

Posted by Rick Bedrosian

Dog HiresSummer 2014 marks the beginning of a new chapter for Hair Of The Dog.

2014 seemed a long way off when Hair Of The Dog formed in 1993.

Founding member/leader Rick Bedrosian (bass and vocals) has been there from the beginning. Rick has guided the group through three decades and will continue to do so into the future. Fiddler Larry Packer (Sha Na Na, The Band, Cat Mother and The All Night News Boys) hooked up with The Dog after the departure of the late Mindy Jostyn in 1997. Eric Finn (electric guitar, mandolin, violin and vocals) has been on board since 1999. Eric’s virtuosity on stage and off has been a cornerstone of Hair Of The Dog’s sound since he first plugged that SRV Stratocaster into his Mesa Boogie amp at Eamonn’s pub. Brian Gibney (acoustic guitar, electric guitar and vocals) played his first gig with HOTD in 2013 and it already seems as if he’s been with the band for years. Drummer Joe Morizio took over this past spring. Joe’s a pro and he beats a savage Celtic tattoo.

The boys are having more fun than ever and it shows. Come on out and see for yourself.
