Featuring the master mind of John Fosdick, Dog Leg Preacher will be performing Saturday, April 26, at the Spar Tree in Granite Falls.

A classic rock cover band, DLP offers an explosive new style of old-school rock and roll. They performed at Lake Steven's Aquafest in 2006.

Fosdick wrote all the material on the self-titled first album, collaborating with Captain Joe Kurke who created vocals reminiscent of bands like AC/DC and Motley Crue. Fosdick provides the drum cadence for Kurke's bass playing.

These two have played together for many years and are able to combine their individual artistic abilities well.

Kurke achieves the exact vocal sound Fosdick was searching for when Dog Leg Preacher was in its earliest stages.

As a virtual band on line, these two guys received airplay world-wide including Australia, Italy, France, Netherlands and on the East Coast of the United States.

"Reviewers chewed it up and spit out raves about the style and production of this musical work."

The newest addition to DLP is Chris Moser, a long-time acquaintance of Fosdick, an ex-Army Ranger and a former resident of Arlington who now lives in Kent.

An accomplished writer himself, Moser assumed the role of rhythm guitar with shared lead and vocals. He assimilated easily and quickly into the group, drawing on years of guitar playing to pick up and recreate DLP's sound.

He is looking forward to having an audience at the Spar Tree.

"It will be great to see a lot of familiar faces in the crowd."

In the last six months, DLP has moved from a virtual band to a full-blown group of veteran musicians who share the same enthusiasm as Fosdick and Kurke for this great music.

The Spar Tree is located at 106 West Stanley St. in downtown Granite Falls.

This is a small venue and seating is limited so get there early for a place to sit.

Additionally Dog Leg Preacher will be performing at the ABATE of Washington Spring Opener this year, from 7 to 9 p.m., Friday, June 13.

"This is the biggest and baddest of biker parties in the state, to be held in Toppenish.

Advance tickets can be purchased at www.springopener.com.

The show starts at 9 p.m. with the opening band, Newton's Law.
