Details

During 2017 the band played slots at some of the UK’s and European favourite festivals. Headlining a few of them along the way. They were on fire, playing to some of the largest audiences of their career including the famous Colours of Ostrava festival in the Czech Republic. They ended the year heading back to Europe to play in Spain, Belgium and Holland.

“Live experiences don’t get much better and they have the songs to go with it. Louder Than War, Guy Smallman..

Ferocious Dog are a full-on six-piece band that encompass folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations. The combination of instruments creates a palette of sound that offers infinite variations: going in hard to get the audience up and moving, or slipping into melodic passages and dub-like fusions. The songs are deeply personal and their fans can really identify with the words. Dan Booth, on fiddle, and John Leonard playing just about everything with strings, bring a huge amount of intricacy to the breakneck pace of their songs.  Les Carter (ex Carter USM) on guitar and the rhythm section of Alex Smith and John Alexander hold things together brilliantly, and with Ken Bonsall’s lyrics and sheer likability, you have a whole greater than the sum of its parts. Ferocious Dog are well known and popular for their high octane live performances.

With Social Consciousness in mind, it is becoming public knowledge that at each gig, the band organize a Charity Food Drop for the homeless, liaising with the local Food Banks in the areas they play. Punters bring, nonperishable food, blankets, toiletries to the shows, and representatives from the food bank arrive to collect the goods, sometimes it amounts to a van full.
