Doghouse, spanning the globe
(or at least the tri-state area) with Tim, Dick, Ric and Chris, playing loud
Classic Rock, coming to destroy a town near you soon! And of course Bob to take your picture as you enjoy some of the best Rock.
Doghouse started in 2000, when four Northern Kentucky
friends (Chuck Davis, Paul Riesenberg, Tom Schulte and
Dick Stewart) started jamming. It became a
frequent occurrance and started talk about playing at parties.
We needed a bass player and stole the bass player (Ric
Thelen) from Mr. Grumpy, a band with deity status in Maysville,
KY, which was destined for break-up. The band played a grade
school reunion in Nov. 2000 under the name Beer Nuts, without
Tom. This was followed with a performance at St. Tim's in
Union, KY with Tom.
The band had it's first real gig under
the name Doghouse (short for Doghouse Dick and the Instigators) at
Southern Lanes in Alexandria, KY on March 31st, 2001. The band
played many parties that summer, and started playing some bars on a
regular basis. In the summer of 2002, the band parted ways
with Tom, to become a full-force four-piece.
In May of 2006, Paul Riesenberg
decided to leave the Northern KY area for sunny Clearwater Florida, and so departed the
band. But Paul was nice enough to give us a little notice and to our
great fortune, we found Chris Moriconi, who plays great drums and isn't too bad
of a guy either. On 5/25/2006, we had a farewell and hello gig, where Paul
played for half the night and then Chris play the second half, with both
playing at the same time for a few songs.
In July of 2010, Chuck Davis
decided the rigors of the road, touring with Doghouse was just too much. He left the band but again was nice enough to give us a little notice and
we were lucky enough to find Tim Waters, who has some great vocals and plays guitar and keyboards rather well.
We're also glad to welcome back Jim 'Bobby' Oaks to the pack to take pictures, help with sound and lights, and all the other things that matter.
