Come down to the Adrift Hotel for a night of good tunes and good beer. Larry Robb duo will kick off the night followed by Laney Lou and the Bird Dogs. The bluegrass band pushes the envelope of what a traditional string band is generally described as by fusing folk songs with country, pop, and rock. They’ve been hitting the road hard for the last four years, sharing stages with the likes of Keb Mo', The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Corb Lund, Hayes Carll, The Mavericks, Wynonna Judd, Mark Chesnutt, Blitzen Trapper, The Lil’ Smokies, Lewi Longmire and many more. The Bird Dogs released a live self-titled studio album in 2016, recorded at Basecamp Studio in Bozeman. Their follow-up album, titled The Vigilante Session, was recorded live at a forest service cabin in the Tobacco Root mountains.
Born under the big sky in Bozeman, Montana, Laney Lou and the Bird Dogs consist of Matt Demarais on vocals/banjo, Ethan Demarais on bass, Lena (Laney) Schiffer on vocals/guitar, Brian Kassay on fiddle/mandolin, and Josh Moore on vocals/guitar.
