Sleepin’ Dogz Band began as an acoustic duo in 2002 comprised of singer-songwriter/rhythm guitarist/Jeannie Burke and lead guitarist Leo Burke. Their sound is a soulful blend of rootsy jam/rock blues. Hook-laden and catchy, Jeannie’s songs are the kind you find yourself singing all day.
Leo Burke’s guitar work adds an edgy excitement to the music. His poignant playing tastefully weaves throughout the songs, often harmonizing with Jeannie’s vocals. He has the ability to rip out a face melting lead or gently seduce with a beautiful melody.
In 2017, the acoustic duo grew into a four-piece with the addition of bassist/vocalist Steven Pippin and drummer Jeff Newman. With this evolution, Leo and Jeannie moved from acoustic to electric guitar, creating a new, more jammy rock feel to the songs.
Steven’s versatile voice adds beautiful harmonies that compliment Jeannie’s voice like warm gravy over biscuits. With his melodic, groovy bass lines, he creates a funky foundation for Jeff (Thunda Foot) Newman to drive the band.
Jeff’s powerfully tasteful drumming leads the jams through every mood. Together, they launch the songs into new stratospheric heights.
The foursome put on an inspiring live show that carries the listener through many emotions. Whether it’s heartbreaking, chicken skin-inducing ballads or vein-popping, sweaty, soul-shaking rock jams, this band’s mission is to move the music lover within.
