Mad Dog Friedman, harmonica player, musical innovator and founder of many popular Colorado blues acts over the years including King Comfort, Harmonica Loowinski, Papa Juke, the Mojo Medicine Show & Blue Lightning, has put together an acoustic blues jam band with a unique blues style indigenous to Colorado in the 21st Century while still honoring the blues roots. We call this music Colorado Country Blues because it combines the “Colorado Sound” (jam grass) with traditional rural blues. The result is Mad Dog Blues, a coalition of top-notch, veteran musicians dedicated to exploring this new sound in both their song writing and performances. Along with Mad Dog Friedman on harmonica, the Mad Dog Blues Experience (5 piece band) includes Jeff Becker (Hippie Buckaroos) on mandolin, Clark Chanslor (White Water Ramble) on stand-up bass, Sean Bennight (from St. Louis) on acoustic guitar and Mark Kaczorowski (Blues on the Lamb) on acoustic guitar. We hope you enjoy our original “Colorado Country Blues” sound, a unique fusion of delta blues, bluegrass, honky-tonk, hokum and acoustic jam music.

Here's what folks have to say about Mad Dog Blues:

"Mad Dog Friedman — harmonica player and principal songwriter for the group Mad Dog Blues — knows what’s up. As he says it, he writes from the moment and sings from the heart." The act's newest, Happy Dance, was recorded live at the KGNU studio and amplifies the group’s "Colorado Country Blues" sounds, something hard to find amongst the cacophony of popular genres. And it is that: funky, heartwarming, and drenched with the old-school storytelling of folk songs past. It hits the soul." ~Rooster Magazine, January 2019

"Fine night of sharp, syncopated Blues. Wonderfully expressive performance with a depth of feeling and sense of humor and play you don't always find together." ~‎Duane Davis, owner of Wax Trax Records in Denver, Colorado.
