AMERICAN DREAM
LISTEN TO CALIFORNIA
RIVERDOGS

Featuring Rob Lamothe (vocals, guitars), Nick Brophy (bass, vocals), Vivian Campbell (lead guitar, backing vocals) and drummer Marc Danzeisen (drums, vocals), Riverdogs have reunited to record their fifth album entitled “California.”

The album marks a definite return to the sound of the highly regarded 1990’s debut album mixing the soulful vocals of Lamothe with the edgy guitarwork from Campbell and solid rhythmic lines from Brophy and Danzeisen.

Riverdogs formed in Los Angeles at the end of the 80’s, when hair-metal was king, but were determined to avoid clichés, adopting an original Blues-Rock style.

Vivian Campbell of then Sweet Savage, Dio and Whitesnake fame was initially brought on board to produce their first demo effort but was so impressed with the band that he actually became a member and played on the debut. Soon after the release, Marc Danzeisen joined Rob, Nick and Vivian to complete the line-up.

Though fans and critics gave the album a warm reception and high regard, change of personnel in their record label eventually led the band members to go their own way, with Campbell settling into the Def Leppard lineup and Nick Brophy becoming a respected engineer and producer.

Riverdogs released two more records “Bone” and “Absolutely Live” in 1993, before going on hiatus for a few years. They gathered again in 2003 to record new material and play a few reunion shows. Those new songs were recorded as demos, but only completed in 2011 when their last album “World Gone Mad” was released.

“California” is a record that truly recreates the Riverdogs magic of the early days. If you like the sound of Bad Company and early Whitesnake, then this record is going to be your next hit!
