Ugly Dog Skiffle Combo
The Ugly Dog Skiffle Combo's ever expanding set list covers many styles that exploit the diverse vocals that each member has to offer and the wide range of instruments they play including Banjo, Guitar, Fiddle, Kazoo, Double Bass, Washboard (of course), Harmonica, Mandolin, Double Bass and percussion.
Everyone in the skiffle band has a say as to what is played and this has resulted in a set list taking in American Civil War and Folk Tunes, Gershwin and Cole Porter, Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, T-Rex and Queen, Kirsty MacColl and Tracy Ullman, Four Non Blondes and Green Day along with all the classic Lonnie Donegan, Chas McDevitt and Vipers songs you'd expect from a skiffle band. The common thread to all these diverse styles is the enthusiasm and humor that the band play them with, the way the band involve the audience and the 'full steam ahead', chaotic, entertaining skiffle sound they generate.
With many years playing experience together, The Ugly Dog Skiffle Combo, have developed a style all of their own that is somewhere between traditional skiffle, bluegrass and rock 'n' roll but always having a good time.
Constantly building a loyal following The Ugly Dog Skiffle Combo have gone on to make numerous live appearances on BBC Radio Norfolk along with appearances on Anglia TV, Beach Radio and Radio Caroline!
