THE BLUESDOG

         LeRoy “BLUESDOG” Falconi is a blues harmonica player with an exclusive style. He creates an authentic mixture of old traditional blues and rock and roll, resulting in an edgy rock blues blend. His music and playing style is influenced by several musical genres including country, blues, rock and heavy metal. To obtain this exclusive style he has studied great harmonica players such as Sonny Terry, James Cotton, Kim Wilson, Charlie Musselwhite, and John Popper. Bluesdog’s tremendous spirit, passion and energy emanates through on every song! Some have even called him the Jimi Hendrix of the harmonica, the James Cotton of today’s blues and the new Charlie McCoy of country music. He’s an exceptionally versatile player who has handled all types of situations that may arise in any performance.

    BLUESDOG has over 27 years of performing experience. He has performed at countless music festivals, benefits, as well as on live blues radio broadcasts.
