The Groggy Dogs be a band that fuses punk, metal 'n ska wit' sea shanties 'n traditional Celtic melodies, deliverin' a forceful 'n fun sound that invites ye t' dance 'n party wit' a few jugs o' grog.
An unknown plague was sweepin' the whole world when The Cap'n, marooned, realizin' that his supplies were diminishin', decided t' embark on a new adventure in search o' ports t' plunder. He knew that his guitar 'n his grog-worn voice wouldna be enough t' navigate through the roarin' seas 'n winds so he united the crew: The Voodoo Witch 'n its magical violin melodies, The Cook who wit' his secret recipes cooks charmin' bass lines, The Buccaneer who wit' the strength o' his accordion makes the lootin' t' be remembered, 'n The Deadman who wit' the rhythm o' his drums maintains the morale o' the crew 'n makes ye vibrate t' the bone.
The Groggy Dogs idea was born in April 2020, a month after the confinement due to the Covid-19 crisis. Mauro (The Cap’n, Vocals and Guitar) after having gone through several Celtic music projects wanted to continue with the idea of taking traditional Celtic melodies and giving them a more hooligan and forceful sound. Being a huge fan of traditional sea songs, he thought it would be a good idea to take some of those old songs and add them to the mix of Punk Metal and Ska. That's when Fátima Caballero (The Voodoo Witch, Violin), Carlos Ghirlanda (The Cook, Bass), Seba Santa Cruz (The Buccaneer, Accordion) and Lucas Hidalgo (The Deadman, Drums) join the crew.
