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 a new acoustic blues grass 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 and Stevie D. on guitar, Mad Dog Blues (band) includes Jeff Becker (Hippie Buckaroos) on mandolin, Clark Chanslor on stand-up bass & and our “ringer” utility player, multi-instrumentalist Sean Bennight. 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 a fan had to say about Mad Dog Blues:

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.
