Gear Grinders (Greg Wickham, PopSkull Rebels, Strawbilly, & Sundog Surf)
Bands will be in the garage
SUNDOG, Kansas City's premier instrumental rock band, is booking gigs for 2020. This professional three-piece group has been playing KC's best music venues and special events for over 20 years: Knuckleheads, Uptown Theatre, Kansas Speedway, Crossroad's First Fridays, Wichita Art Museum, and more. Not your average cover band. If you're looking for something completely different for your next event, check out SUNDOG.
Three-plus hours of reverb-drippin', guitar-driven, surf-inspired instrumental rock. If you like Dick Dale, Los Straitjackets, The Mermen, Big Lazy, or Link Wray... you'll love SUNDOG. (All of the above information is completely true, what follows should be taken at face value - and we wear masks.)
STRAWBILLY A Honky-Tonkin', Psychobilly, Rip Roarin' Grit Snortin' Booze fueled Rockin Traditional Country all American good time fo sho.
POPSKULL REBELS "PopSkull" was a slang word in the Civil War for Cheap Whiskey, we are influence in Ol'school Country and Rockabilly, and a little punk thrown in for good measure! J Doyle is Founding member of the Rumblejetts and Gretsch Artist. JD also in the early 90's was a member of the Roots/Country band the Bindlestiffs. B Clipper Sifton is from KC's Cry Baby Ranch, a local favorite! Lafayette Dixon, all I can say is just wait! he's like a bull ready to bust out of a gate at a Rodeo!
GREG WICKHAM Raised in the Kansas City area on a wide variety of musical influences, Wickham’s music rips through the crossroads of roots rock, country, and Americana. Having shared lead singing and songwriting duties with brother Fred in alt-country’s critically acclaimed Hadacol (to whom the quote above refers), Wickham and the band established themselves as vital forces in the alt-country/roots rock music scene with Better Than This (Checkered Past Records) and All in Your Head (Slewfoot Records), leading to features and glowing reviews in Guitar Player, Q Magazine, USA Today, Billboard, No Depression, and countless other national and international publications.
