Alpha Dog is a three-piece rock band who have been compared to The Breeders, Throwing Muses, and Concrete Blonde. Their influences include the Talking Heads, Pixies, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ani DiFranco, Sleater Kinney, Duran Duran and The Dixie Chicks. Joey, lead vocals and guitar, has seen the band evolve through various writing styles and blends before settling on the perfect mix. Throughout the years, Joey has developed a strong vocal presence. Angie, drums, joined the group in 1998. Her style of rhythm and timing allows songs the ability to breathe. Kari, bass and vocals, is the most recent addition to Alpha Dog. Together the trio forms a unique blend of vocal abilities and melodic harmonies. Founded in Milwaukee in 1998, Alpha Dog has just recorded and produced their second CD entitled Poochie's Pride. Some of the bands they have played with include Harlow (VH-1's Bands on the Run) and Milwaukee favorites such as You're Pretty, ebb-n-flow, Ditz, Dimes and Mudflap. They have also received radio play on WLZR, WLUM, WMSE and WWSP. Venues they have played include the Milwaukee Ale House, BBC, Globe East, Reed St. Station, Tasting Room, Witz End, Alverno College, Rosebud Theater, Mission Coffee House in Stevens Point and the Miller Oasis Stage. 'These three women from Milwaukee, WI blend edgy moods and punk energy to form a unique powerhouse of rhythm and style.' Jeff from weavilradio 'Alpha Dog's edgy music and vocals with the guts and grit that haven't been heard since Chrissie Hynde brings faith to new music, and confidence that rock hasn't all turned into soulless techno. Simply put, Alpha Dog is between rock and a soul place' Jon Gilbert Leavitt_Radio Stonewall.
