DOG & PONY sound

4 years in a row!

We couldn't have done it without your support!


We hope your Christmas was warm and fuzzy & chock full of fun and friends.

We had shows running all through the holidays (Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day) to give everyone a chance to get out and cut loose.

New Years eve was a blast with two shows; Swizzles and O'Brien's. New Years Day also offered two shows, one at O'Brien's and one at VIP. OB's also hosted a
karaoke themed murder mystery on New Years Eve.

Pal News

Pal of The Month
Andrew Galligan
(a.k.a. puppy)

Congratulations to Biny (Mike Heffernan) & Wendy on their recent ring exchanging Ceremony. It's been an exciting couple of months for Mike given the launch of his shiny new website: v.0.0.2
and the wonderful article in the citizen this past week featuring his company OpusEdge.

Congratulations to Tonya (TonTon) and husband Chris on their new house and to Pete and the lovely Sue on their new home.

Roxy & Neal are settling nicely into their new home. They moved in just before Christmas.

Congratulations to Steve Muss whose hard work and determinism (as well as enormous talent) has landed his band Sandstorm numerous gigs these past few months as well a radio spot and a contract to play the Ottawa 67's hockey games. [sandstorm website]

Congratulations to Robyn for winning a way cool riding toy - "The Plasma Car" on a radio show. Many many thanks to Robyn for giving it to our kids :)

Thanks to Les & Bruce for adding a new way cool disk of Sondheim showtunes to the 9¾ library.

Congratulations to Robin Duetta for launching his new Club, Level 2 on Rideau Street.

Thanks to Monique, our Miss Kitty, for all of her hard work and dedication to D&P and to the community as a whole. Moe is not only a wonderfully naughty and often over-the-top lovable host for DOG & PONY Sound, she is also, most recently, treasurer to the Pride committee.

Thanks to Föxxx & Hound, our Misty & Richie, for dropping what they were doing on a moments notice and relieving Miss Kitty mid-show when she recently broke her foot on a patron (just try to figure out how that happened).

Happy Birthday January Pals: Cait (Glam Kitty) 7th, Mark (aka Tonik) 18th, Misty (aka Föxxx) 23rd and Christopher (The Dog himself) 31st. The Dog will be celebrating his birthday Sunday Jan. 30th at Swizzles. When the clock strikes 12...we'll see how many of you can teach an old dog new tricks ;)
