A Brief History of Burglars Dog

Burglars Dog first played together in a back room of the Riverview Hotel in Taroona in the 1970s. Unfortunately the room was removed soon after. The Dogs went on to play at the Duke of York, the Cornish Mount, the Wheatsheaf Hotel and Hobart’s great music pub in the 1980s, The Doghouse Hotel (it can only be coincidence that all four venues later closed). At their height, they even appeared once with James Morrison at the Casino (yes, alright, it was only for a couple of numbers, he may not remember it, and the venue is still open).

Undeterred, Burglars Dog has continued to this day, playing an eclectic mix of 1930s washboard band tunes, traditional jazz and blues. The band features Alistair Scott (banjo), Monty East (guitar), Dave Scott (T-chest base), Rainer Gartz (clarinet and Sax), Ric 'the hat' (mouth harp) and Nigel Legge (washboard & percussion).

A session with Burglars Dog is one to remember. Don’t miss them.
