Lost Dog Found - Press
Soul. Rock and Roll. Modern Swing. Pop. Dance. Americana... Lost Dog Found can be (and has been) described with a lot of musical adjectives. Combining those genres into their own distinctive modern sound is where Lost Dog Found has set itself apart.
The band has set out to become their own genre, and their live performances have become one of the sweatiest, electric, crowd interactive parties you'll ever attend, widely regarded as being one of the best live acts and dance bands coming out of the San Francisco Bay Area (and we tour up and down the west coast regularly).
Lost Dog Found has performed hundereds of shows, corporate events (including Google, SAP Systems, and MTV), at venues near and far
(like Downtown Disney, Chase Palm Park, Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender), dozens of city concerts (Santa Barbara, San Mateo, Santa Rosa), and is contracted for private functions much of the year.
With an arsenal of cover material and their own danceable original work, Lost Dog Found knows its in the memory making business, and has mastered the craft
of providing the highest caliber of entertainment to a wide swath of age ranges and people.
The Critics Agree....

"You know we might be about due for anther jump and jive revival. And here is a band that could lead the parade. A hot new swing ensemble out of San Francisco, Lost Dog Found. They gather up the styles of Dixieland, New Orleans soul, jump blues, swing, rock and soul to perform their own original tunes. These songs might not be swing standards. Yet." - Read Article

"Lost Dog Found not only have a timeless sound but they also have the personalities, look, and professionalism that exceeds your highest expectations.
We had them play at a 50’s themed summer picnic and a 1920’s Gatsby themed winter party with overwhelming praise from our employees and guests. I now find myself wanting to identify other themes that would afford us the ability to bring them back again and again. We are all big fans of their music."
