About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

The Sundogs are a four-piece Madison-based band, founded way back in 2000, specializing in lively covers of popular yet diverse guitar rock from the 1960s onward — Beatles, Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Hendrix, Cream, Peter Frampton, The Who, The Eagles, The Cars, Tom Petty, U2, Nirvana, Green Day, Dire Straits, and a few surprises when they can work them in. The three constants since nearly the beginning have been founding members Jon Martin (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Grant Petty (lead guitar), and Janesville bass player Graham Judson who joined in 2005. Relative newcomer John Weekes brought his amazing drumming chops to the band in 2019. Although the Sundogs occasionally play clubs and taverns, the majority of our gigs are now fundraisers, festivals, and private and corporate parties. We bring a highly professional work ethic to our bookings, taking pride in excellent communication with the client concerning music preferences, event schedule, technical needs, and other practical concerns. Please see our five-star client feedback!

Private PartyReviewed on October 25, 2022From Nekoosa, WI

The Sundogs were great. It was a great party and they were awesome to work with and sounded great. I look forward to booking them again for more parties at Sand Valley!

The Sundogs put on a great performance for our event. All of our guests were very happy with the music selection. It was really easy to communicate with Grant to discuss anything that we needed leading up to the event. Thank you again!!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on June 15, 2017From Madison, WI

Such a talented group, the music was fantastic! Our corporate event was a huge success and we received so many compliments on our choice of music, all thanks to The Sundogs! The sound was well managed, hats off to their technician. The music selection was enjoyable for all age groups at our event and the vocals were spot on. We look forward to our next opportunity to book The Sundogs!

The Sundogs:

Thank you very much, Rachel - we enjoyed playing for your event!
