The Jive Dogs

About

The Jive Dogs have been evolving around Launceston since late last millennium when Peter Waddle bought the wrong banjo to play Irish folk music and instead started strumming in a trad-jazz way with a collection of University Wind Orchestra musicians. Out of the wreckage, the All-Star Whoopee Fun Band emerged to play Dixie versions of disco and metal tunes, Muppet songs and anything by Captain Matchbox. Still the only band to ever put Kiss, AC/DC, Racy, Thelonius Monk, Weather Report, Adge Cutler and the Wurzels, Tom Waits and Fats Waller songs into the same set.
