John “Dog House” Doherty John didn’t earn the nickname “Dog House,” because he’s been bad. No, no…he earned that monicker because he is one baaaaaaaaad hombre. If you know what I mean. And if you don’t, well, once you’ve heard this fella bend notes into submission by way of his dog house, aka, the double bass/upright bass/bass fiddle, or whatever you’d like to call it….then you’ll know exactly what I mean. John is what you’d call a low frequency artiste. He’s a true-blue jazz lover and has fueled that love by lending his talents to a number of big bands over the years. He swings hard, as they say, and provides backbone to our rhythms along with the rest of our top notch rhythm section. When not thumpin’ the “dog house,” John can be found sampling his own sweet potato hash (hmmm…song title? I think maybe) or making sure that everyone within a 3 block radius of his home has eaten. Suffice it to say, rehearsals at John’s place keep us coming back for more!
