My Dog Bill crafts heartfelt, free-spirited Alternative Rock with various songs rooted in Folk, Funk, Reggae, and Americana. The band fortifies performances with unyielding musicianship and zeal radiating positive vibes, sonic dynamism, and bona fide joy into people’s lives. Michael Shawn, Ted, Brian, and Paul's musical evolution revolves around inspiring the masses with their music and mindset. 2015 will always prove My Dog Bill’s well-deserved victory party.
Since reconnecting via Facebook in 2013, My Dog Bill has embellished its song catalogue while playing Greater Philadelphia venues like The Rusty Nail, The Legendary Dobbs, The North Star Bar, Doc Watson’s Public House, and MOJO 13 with fine local artists: Three Fourteen, Chronic Wolf, The Tommy Froelich Trio, Mesa Jane, Sacred Cube, Emergency Brakethru, RaLeaf, and The National Bird. Additionally, bands like SuperMonkey and Sunshine Riot asked My Dog Bill to join the bill when each tour came into town, and radio programs 93.7 WSTW’s Hometown Heroes, WCHE 1520 AM, PLM Radio, and the Live at the Nail Radio Show featured My Dog Bill songs, promoted, and interviewed the band. Working with charitable organizations forever beats at the core of My Dog Bill’s melodic mission. Michael Shawn, Ted, Brian, and Paul played the 5th Annual Spring Festival and Summer Jubilee in Trainer, PA with other local artists Second Place Champions, SynnerG, Anthony Caserta of Boy in Black, and Three Fourteen to raise money for the town’s community center. Recently expanding the duo to a four-member band, the guys performed at Fennario and Freddie's Tavern & Grille during the summer months, competed in Gorilla Music’s Battle of the Bands, and reached the finals held at The World Café Live Philadelphia on September 6, 2015.
