Brothers Lee and Will Haraway formed The Sundogs in Atlanta, GA in the early 2000s and
quickly earned attention for the melodic Americana Rock and Roll sound of their records and
especially for their high-energy live shows.
The Sundogs released “BB Gun Days” in 2004, “Instrument of Change” in 2007 and “Cut &
Run” in 2015, which was the first release from The Sundogs to also feature songs from co-
lead guitarist Jon Harris, former leader of Jon Harris and the Sin Hounds.
Having long been compared to Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, the band started performing
The Sundogs Present ‘The Tom Petty Show’ in 2008 and have played a complete Petty
tribute every December thereafter at Smith’s Olde Bar in Atlanta.
The six-piece lineup also includes renowned Atlanta gunslinger Benji Shanks, ace Hammond
keyboardist Kevin Thomas and drummer Will Groth. Collectively, The Sundogs have shared
stages with Jason Isbell, Zac Brown Band, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Jimmy Herring,
Widespread Panic, Sugarland, Shawn Mullins, The Wailers, Col. Bruce Hampton,
The BoDeans, Burning Spear, Gatemouth Brown, Chuck Leavell, Bill Kreuztman, Blackberry
Smoke, Black Joe Lewis, Bloodkin, Lucero, The Wood Bros. and Ike Stubblefield.
In May of 2017, the Haraway Brothers released a solo (duo?) record, “The Haraway Brothers
Wish You Love & Luck in the World” with Shanks producing from Kristian Bush’s Projector
Room Studios in Decatur, Ga. In 2018, The Sundogs will release “The Sundogs’ Greatest B-
Sides” featuring 10 of their most-loved songs in their career.
