Dogs In A Pile

There are few music festivals with the legacy of the High Sierra Music Festival (HSMF). After more than thirty years, HSMF has truly become far more than the sum of its parts. Sure, there's a ton of world-class music on several stages, parades, activities for kids, crafts and vendors, killer food, and all that. And of course, there's the camping scene, a hippie town that springs up almost overnight on the Plumas County Fairgrounds for the four-day festival around the Fourth of July each year.

The first weekend of "Pigeons Frasco Dogs Tour” featured high energy performances from all three acts over Memorial Day Weekend in the northeast. The tour kicked off on Friday 5/24 at the famed outdoor Stone Pony Summer Stage and included a collaborative encore with all three bands on stage together. The supergroup performed “Born To Run” by Asbury Park’s very own Bruce Springsteen, followed by “Run Like Hell” by Pink Floyd. Watch the full 20+ minute performance HERE.

Dogs In A Pile (DIAP) made their Stone Pony Summer Stage debut this past Friday to open the triple-threat summer tour being dubbed the “Pigeons Frasco Dogs Tour”. Andy Frasco graciously switched set times with DIAP to let the Asbury Park locals relish a little longer in the special occasion with their family, friends, and fans.

This week, we had the opportunity to sit down with Johnny Buck, the executive director and co-founder of Rooster Walk, to discuss the upcoming Rooster Walk 14. The festival began in 2009 as a tribute to late high school friends Edwin Penn ('the rooster') and Walker Shank. From its inception, the festival has focused on supporting a charity that grants college scholarships to deserving seniors at Martinsville High School and provides instruments and funding to enhance local school band programs.

The High Sierra Music Festival, one of California's longest-running annual music festivals, is celebrating its 32nd year on July 4-7, 2024, in the golden Sierra hills of Quincy. Headliners this year include Ziggy Marley, Primus, and Greensky Bluegrass. They will be joined by a wide variety of bluegrass, jam, Americana, funk, folk, and worldbeat acts on multiple stages at the Plumas County Fairgrounds.

Dogs In A Pile (DIAP) announced their Summer Tour dates today – which includes return trips to Seattle (WA), Portland (OR), and Weiser (ID). The eight dates will also incorporate first time visits to the Colorado cities of Crested Butte, Vail, and Bellvue. Two shows in Montana – a first-time headlining date in Bozeman and an inaugural visit to Whitefish – will close out the June run.

Following the overwhelming demand for the first leg of the "Pigeons Frasco Dogs Tour," Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Andy Frasco & The UN, and Dogs in a Pile are thrilled to announce an extension of their joint tour into the late summer. This next phase brings the powerhouse trio to additional iconic venues across the United States, promising more nights of unforgettable performances.

Dogs In A Pile continued their countywide Winter Tour on Saturday night in Stroudsburg at the Sherman Theater, supported by local acts The Tribe and Mosey Beats. The evening began with The Tribe, a Funk/Jazz/Hip-Hop fusion band from Wilkes-Barre, PA, which set the mood for the cold and rainy night.

In this insightful interview, Jeremy Kaplan, the talented keyboardist from Dogs In A Pile, shares his remarkable journey from a high school student supported by Billy Joel's generous foundation, to a flourishing musician intertwined with Joel's legacy. Kaplan's connection to Joel extends beyond a mere meeting; it's a narrative of inspiration, opportunity, and the transformative power of music.

Dogs. So hot right now. Readily apparent by another pair of sold-out shows. This time at the Bluebird Theater in Denver, CO. The sellouts mark the third and fourth of the year out of seven headlining shows thus far. Coming off a mini-tour in the Midwest opening for Andy Frasco & The U.N., Dogs In A Pile (DIAP) landed back in the Centennial State – a place they’ve heavily familiarized themselves with over the past year.
