Why book Bossydog?

Bossydog was formed from the remaining members of the popular Chicago band "Roy and the Orbitz". Our vision is to prove that a band does not have to be loud to be good. This group collectively has thousands of performances under their belts. If you are looking for good time music than we are your band! We know how to work with the crowd to help them have a great time. Once you've seen us you'll be coming back for more.





Great Professional Band

I hired Bossy Dog on Saturday, November 24, 2012. They were great, we had people of all ages. Bossy Dog had songs that my parents loved, My dad said they rocked LA BAMBA. The birthday boy, my husband loved Black Sabbath songs. My husband jammed with them. I work for the States Attorney Office, so it was thier professionalism that impressed me.They send me a contract with prompt replys. I was nervous and their professionalism put me at ease. I would recommend them to anyone.

Response from Bossydog:

Thanks for the great feedback! We also enjoyed playing for your party!

Very professional and entertaining group!

Bossydog played at Odyssey Authentic Greek Taverna in Lombard,IL and they rocked us all night long. They were very organized and played the songs the way they were meant to be played. Our patrons were dancing and having a great time. They are a very versatile group and they even played some requested songs. We hired them immediately for more shows and will continue to do so.

Bossydog is the Midwest's premier party band consisting of four seasoned musicians who have thousands of performances under their collective belt. Our goal is to keep the fans up and moving to songs from the 50's do-wop favorites to rock and disco. Some artists we cover include: The Beatles, Elvis, Creedence Clearwater Revival, ZZ Top, and Rick Springfield, to name a few. Our audiences are dancing and tapping their toes the whole night long.

Bossydog is a group of musicians who believe that a band does not have to be LOUD to be good. Our combination of well mixed 4-part harmonies and music bring the songs to life.
