Ferocious Dog play a mix of high energy folk, ska and punk to get the house jumping
The band started as a Three piece in the late 80's by Ken Bonsall (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Dan Booth (Fiddle) and Ian Wagstaff playing Bodran (irish drum). Shortly after the band was joined by Dave Drury (Bass), Paul Newbury (Drums), Jimmy Carrol (Guitar/Banjo/Penny Whistle).
The Band split and reformed a couple of times in the early days, then following the tragic death of Paul Newbury in 2005. They were joined by Brad Drury (Dave Drury's Son). In 2010 they were joined by Kyle Peters on guitar and finally they were joined by Ellis Warrin (Mandolin/guitar) the last of the new and most recent line up.
The current line-up elevated the band to a new level in 2011 coinciding with the release of their self titled EP and new found success on the UK festival scene giving the band excellent exposure. With more festivals lined up for 2012 the future is looking very bright.
With there success has come new friends one of which is front man and singer 'Mark Chadwick' from 'The Levellers', and the boys have had the honour to play with him twice recently.
When the band are not out on the road they can be often found out and about in their home of Warsop and the bands true home is 'The Black Market' also in Warsop and part owned by Dave Drury
Mad Dog Mcrea raise hands, lift feet and start parties wherever they play with their dance-demanding recipe of folk, pop, rock, jazz and bluegrass. Whisking up whistles, fiddles and mandolins to spectacular and infectious effect, these musical magicians are synonymous not only with a damn good party but also with quality musicianship and the odd surprise.
Thanks to three storming gigs at Glastonbury 2013 (notably the Avalon Stage), the release of their official video ‘Happy Bus’, regular radio play by esteemed folk such as Mike Harding, and in no small part the utter dedication of their huge fan base - momentum is definitely gathering pace.
Fresh and up for it, the Mad Dogs are touring the UK throughout the whole of November 2014 (check the gig list for details) and a much-anticipated live studio album is on its way.
Mad Dog Mcrea’s name is firmly established on the live music scene, and they are in huge demand from festivals, live music venues and traffic wardens across the country. They were named ‘Best Live Act’ at the 2012 South West Music Awards, and in the same awards in 2011 their last album ‘The Whirling Dervish’ scooped ‘Best Album of the Year’. Two more nominations are secured for the 2013 awards.
The famous purple happy bus is fired up and ready for action, and there’s room for you – get on board!
