Based out of North Carolina, Andrew Saltz, and his band SALTY DOG, is a powerhouse premiere band - a tour de force here to stay! SALTY DOG is a ground-breaking [Indie/Alternative, Roots Rock, Funk Rock, Native Music, and R&B] full-service entertaining act who delivers exceptional live music experiences through soulful and fiery performances with advanced style and flare that is omnipresent in his music. The music tells relatable stories through encompassing all aspects from sweet healing soul vibrations of bright Pop harmonies to the darkness and rebelliousness of Alternative Rock. Performance services are available in three formats: duo, trio, and full band. All formats are presented through high-quality production and sound that can be customized to suit large outdoor venues or small indoor settings. His band makes up a group of seasoned musicians who all enjoy playing & singing their own originals along with a few covers catering to your entertainment needs. Rocking the guitars is Caleb, a veteran of the Christian Contemporary/ Rock music world, and a virtuoso in his own right. Bringing the bottom end of the band to life, and serving as visual timekeeper is the extremely talented John Sutton on drums. Thumping on the bass is Thomas Grell. Fronting the band, with his amazing vocal talents is Andrew Saltz. SALTY DOG is known for evoking Native American elements through his highly progressive songs. He strives to bring attention to indigenous treatment and has won over an eclectic audience of young and old everywhere he performs. Although he's been close to "making it" several times, he has found happiness and acceptance in regional music circuits. Andrew is very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Live Music Producer Tom Jackson. Tom has worked with 100’s of artists and worked with major artists like Taylor Swift, The Band Perry, Jars of Clay, and more, on their live shows. From incorporating tunes from his newly released freshman album, the band crosses over genres with ease and keep folks dancing all night. If any band members look familiar to you, it’s because they have played with well-known regional bands over the years. If you’re not pissed off, then you’re not paying attention. Each member brings a creative mind and a lot of heart to every performance. SALTY DOG would love to see you soon at a upcoming show so be sure to follow and book him online today!
