The Dogwood Rockers began in 2009 in Brunswick, Ohio. The name comes from Dogwood Drive where they began their practices. The band is a throwback in many ways to the groups common in the 1960s and 1970s.
The group's sound has been in the 1960s-1990s Classic Rock mode. A typical gig goes through 7 phases including acoustic 6 and 12 string guitars, double keyboards, 12-string electric guitar, "combo" (keyboard/bass/drums/vocals), clean Stratocaster guitar, clean semi-hollow guitar, and distorted semi-hollow guitar.
