Album Notes
The Ramblin Dawgs formed in late 2007, making waves throughout their local New York / New Jersey communities with energetic rock driven modern blues performances. In January 2009, the Ramblin Dawgs released three singles engineered and co-produced by Dan Skye (Blues Traveler, Bon Jovi). Exhibiting a classic rock and blues influence with an original modern twist, the songs have garnered an overwhelming electropositive response by their fan base, "The Dawg Pound," which continue to grow numerically and geographically. The new full legnth 11 song CD "Shoot Em Up" contais re-recorded and re-mastered versions of these 3 songs making this EP/CD a collectors item. The New CD is available through the band's website at www.ramblidawgs.com or through CD Baby.

If you like Clapton, BB King, Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks, Rock and Blues, You'll love the Ramblin Dawgs!

Ramblin Dawgs - “rockin blues”
The principle behind an EP, is to get exposure to the wider world, a showcase for your talents that will increase your fan base and hopefully earn that elusive recording contract. With this in mind, Ramblin’ Dawgs have delivered a brief master class in blues rock that will definitely achieve the first objective.

Recent exponents of the Blues such as Joe Bonamassa have brought a harder edged sound to this genre in recent years that seems to appeal to the erstwhile rock fan whilst having its roots firmly in the sounds of legends such as BB King and Buddy Guy.

Ramblin’ Dawgs’ Rockin’ Blues fits into to this category with the upmost of ease , kick off with ‘Steppin’ Up’, a rockier track that takes its lead from Eric Clapton’s 80’s releases such although the slap bass into was a little worrying at first.

‘You Let Me Down’ could easily be penned by the likes of Peter Green or Gary Moore with its drag’ em down lyrics and hypnotic guitar riffing, not a track to lift your spirits rather feeling your pain. The EP concludes with ‘Worse Without You’ and they saved the best till last with its signature Blues solo’s and vocals that should be able to gain a grant from the heritage committee it’s so stooped in historical blues sounds.

There are a lot of references to some great musicians in this review and Ramblin’ Dawgs deserve to be mentioned alongside them, this EP is a fantastic blues rock release that draws from the rich vein of the genre and more than returns on the deal.

-Simon Mulholland @www.vanguard-online.co.uk June 2009


"Chock full of blues riffage and vocals. “Steppin’ up” sounds like a lost classic Cream/Clapton song, while “you let me down” is obviously an homage to B.B. King’s musical style. Closing the EP is “worse without you”, which reminds me of Buddy Guy type of number.

Ramblin Dawgs clearly have a passion for the blues, and this EP showcases it."



It goes without saying that people in Belgium and the Netherlands just adore good rock-blues. Therefore we like them to know that one of the best rock blues bands come from East Brunswick in New Jersey and are called The Ramblin Dawgs. They serve you a cocktail of rock blues, rock and classic rock which can be best described as rock driven modern blues.

Established in late 2007 the driving force behind this energetic foursome is singer guitar player Carlos “C Dawg” DC. Accompanied by Raul DC on drums, Charlie Saraceno on piano and organ and John Landau on bass and vocals. Obvious they don’t have an album out yet but in 2009 they released ‘Rockin Blues’ a three song original EP. These three songs should give us a good picture what to expect from this quartet. My absolute favorite is ‘You Let Me Down’ a slow blues in which Carlos manages to create a lot of depth in his guitar playing as well as in his vocals. But ‘Steppin Up’ and ‘Worse Without You’ are definitely worthwhile. This is a band with a lot of potential.

"If you take the sounds of Southern Rock, Blues, and Classic Rock and were to merge them all together, the outcome would sound like the Ramblin Dawgs. Ramblin Dawgs has created a fantastic sound that fuses elements of Blues and Rock into melodious tunes. If you are a fan of BB King and Eric Clapton, then you are going to flip over Ramblin Dawgs.

One of the biggest appeals to the band's music is their classic 70's/80's style that works perfectly with their Rock and Blues flavor. C-Dawg is the strongest point to the band's appeal as his soulful rugged voice blends nicely with his bluesy guitars. Add Raul DC's rhythmic drumming, Charlie's breathless Piano & Organ skills/ and Jonas Landau's dynamic bass and you have one winning band.

Ramblin Dawgs' Rockin Blues is the perfect fusion of Blues and Rock flavored with bluesy soulful vocals, out of this world drumming, and intense bass that will have you begging from more of this talented group.

I give Rockin Blues an outstanding A+ The CD is well worth its weight and gold."

Powerful rock/blues CD
The Ramblin Dogs energetic three song EP “Rockin Blues,” is full of classic 70’s/80’s blues tone we all love and remember. The first single, “Steppin Up” is a wonderful throw back to the sound of the Fabulous Thunderbirds with some dirty guitar work by Carlos “C-Dawg” DC. “You Let Me Down” also showcases “C-Dawg’s” Clapton infused playing and lets us hear the band jam out some soulful, slow tempo blues. Closing out the three single EP is “Worse Without You,” a Chicago style blues number with solid chord progressions and guitar driven riffs and solo. The band as a whole is extremely talented, but Carlos’ guitar skills stand out amongst anything else on this disc and deserve to be noticed. If you like Clapton or that old school Chicago blues sound, then “Rockin Blues” is a great CD to add to your collection.
