“Police Dog Hogan were good – actually, they were excellent.”
The Sunday Times
“A seven-piece of great style and a sound that is polished to perfection. They clearly know how good they are and look like they’re having a great time. At Maverick 2012 they huffed and puffed and blew the house down, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake.”
Louise Rogers, Americana UK
Police Dog Hogan
Police Dog Hogan are a high-energy and eclectic seven-piece, combining fiddle, banjo, mandolin, drums and guitars with knockout four-part harmonies in an exuberant fusing of country, pop, folk, and rocking urban bluegrass. The Sunday Times has described them as “wonderful”; the Telegraph named them one of its ‘favourite new bands”; Radio 2 called them “a band to watch” and veteran DJ Johnnie Walker praises their gigs as “just a really good, fun time”.
Hatful of Rain
Hatful of Rain emerged from the Brighton’s lively session, folk club and pub scene and first played together as this line up in October 2012. Playing original material, Hatful of Rain strive to combine powerful song-writing with musical virtuosity whilst retaining a strong traditional feel. The Hatfuls make full use of the “around the microphone” approach to performing which creates an engaging visual spectacle whilst underlining the warmth and communal style of the music played.
