The Lab Dogs bluegrass band has brought smiles to audiences all over Utah since starting out in 1999. The Dogs have played at music festivals, private parties, conventions, farmers markets, wedding receptions, corporate events and fundraisers, but no funerals (yet). We have played dozens of free shows for appreciative audiences at nursing homes and care centers. The Lab Dogs play everything from traditional bluegrass to the blues, from old-time standards to swingy newgrass originals, and we have a fantastic time doing it. No one has ever left a Lab Dogs concert with a frown on their face, and that includes the Lab Dogs themselves. We love performing and playing music, but most of all we love entertaining and interacting with our audiences. The Lab Dogs are Kevin Jones (mandolin), Erik Brunvand (bass), Peter Netka (resophonic guitar), Bill Thomas (guitar), and J.D. Frederick (banjo).
