“What The Critics Say: "The Love Dogs are funny, funky, and push a beat 50's style until you can't help but tap your feet. With big thick horns and humorous, sexy lyrics, this band is built for fun. -BLUES REVIEW "Even though the music could make Leonardo's David dance, it's the songwriting that separates these Dogs from the rest of the pack. -THE NEW YORK POST "If these guys don't make you want to dance, look in the mirror. You're the dog. -BOSTON HERALD "Steamy R&B from great players with an unabashed love of rhythm! -BOSTON GLOBE "The Dogs combine tongue in cheek humor with impressive musical chops...the band captures the spirit that spawned jump music...a heavy contender for national fame. -WORCESTER PHOENIX “The Love Dogs celebrate time honored black R&B and it’s related musics. Scheer and his hounds prove they are more than ready to slip their leash and put the big blues bite on America.” -DOWN BEAT "Scheer's razor-sharp vocals (the man even scats convincingly) are a throwback to the great days of Big Joe Turner and Wynonie Harris. -SOUTHLAND BLUES, California "An awesome horn section, a killer pianist, and one of the sassiest frontmen ever to hit the stage. -CREATIVE LOAFING, Atlanta, GA "The party vibe recalls Louis Prima's band with Keely Smith and Sam Butera, but with modern flourishes and funkier sensibilities. No matter the style, these canines show considerable chops -ALL ABOUT JAZZ "This CD by the Love Dogs is by far one of the best of the year. -MUSIC CITY BLUES, Nashville "Overflowing with horns, good humour and swinging rhythms, making perfect party music. -BLUEPRINT, British Blues Connection "Whip me, beat me, make me write bad checks! You aren't bound to find in your lifetime a more danceable, funny, or just plain more fun band if you sat down and invented it yourself. -THE HARD REPORT, Music Industry Trade Mag. ”
