In 1984 Dave Ingalls, Carla Thomas, Jeff Cooperman and Randee Wilson entered the scene adding a jazz/ swing influence. The band headquarters moved to Reston Virginia, evolved again, and took a new direction enjoying a lot of Allman Brothers Band influence. Fast forward to 2016. DOUG FRASER enters the scene. The Dog Band finds new direction and Jeanne Swan came to sing with the band, adding to the country flavor. Truly a ‘Beltway’ band.
