Opening for Smash Mouth on Friday in Breitbeck Park on the Breitbeck Lakeview Stage will be The Horn Dogs, one of CNY’s top party/horn bands. Featuring 9 talented and fun musicians, The Horn Dogs will make you dance and sing all night long playing the greatest Horn, Party, Motown, R&B, Funk, Disco, Dance, Classic Rock – and even some Country tunes. It’s always a party with The Horn Dogs.
The Horn Dogs all began when 4 friends from Solvay, NY. got together back in high school to have fun and create some great music – over the years the line-up of excellent musicians have changed, but the fun and great music continues! The band is made up from members who have been in other outstanding Upstate NY bands and has come together as one of the top Horn/Party bands in CNY today. The Horn Dogs are always adding new music and keeping on top of today’s trends and still playing new timeless classics and at new venues throughout Upstate New York. If you see them live, join in the fun and feel free to come up and say hi! The band members are: Tony Callisto (Trumpet /Soprano, Alto & Tenor Sax/ Trombone/Vocals), John D’Eredita (Trumpet/Flugelhorn/ Lead and Back Up Vocals), Keith Ducett (Soprano, Alto, Tenor & Baritone Sax/Vocals), Shelly Harris (Lead and Back Up Vocals / Percussion), Larry Jaworski (Bass/Lead and Back Up Vocals), Jim Kelley (Drums/Percussion), Ed Page (Guitar/ Lead and Back Up Vocals), Jeremy Patterson (Keyboards), and Dave Simile (Trumpet/Keyboards/Lead and Back Up Vocals).
