Diesel Dog

Diesel Dog is a Roots Fusion band from Norfolk County, Ontario.

We have been performing at festivals, fairs, events, and clubs for the past 15 years. It’s hard to count, but we have played 100’s of shows.

Depending on the event we play either play an acoustically oriented set, or we plug in for an electrified set of tight and funky rock 'n roll.
When performing acoustically we play a rootsy, 'bluegrassy' blend of Americana inspired original material mixed with some choice cover material.
When we perform electric we have a great big dancable energy; a funky intensity that always gets the crowd on their feet and into the music. Our electric show is full of improvisational twists and turns, anchored by one of Ontario's tightest rhythm sections.
Whether we come out acoustically with our hillbilly funk, or plug in for a set of electrified roots-rock psychedelia, people end up dancing at Diesel Dog shows.
We’ve been either headlining or doing the late night sets at the Come Together Music Festival for the last 15 years as well as headlining the Big Rock music Festival for 4 years. Highlights for the band include opening spots for Little Feat , Col. Bruce Hampton Ret. and Johnny Winter and last summer we were invited to do 2 separate sets at Mumford and Sons’ Gentlemen of the Road Festival. After winning RELIX magazine's "Jam-off Contest" in June 2009, Diesel Dog received editorial coverage in July's issue as well as a track on July's CD compilation.
We have developed a strong regional following and have just finished our 4th all original CD. An east coast Canadian tour has been booked for this summer and we are looking forward to another busy spring, summer and fall in 2014.
