The Rhythm Dogs, formed in 2000 and based in Portland, play an unusual blend of groove-based jazz, funk, ska, blues, Latin, and Afrobeat. The band is made up of saxophonist Mary-Sue Tobin, trombonist Greg Scholl, keyboardist Chris Azorr, drummer Mark Burdon, percussionist Chuk Barber, and bassist Mark von Bergen. They have recorded four albums of almost entirely originals, the most recent being “The Dogfather” (2018).

You may have seen the dogs at O'Connor's, the Fremont Theater, or even at the Beaverton Farmers Market serving up some fresh beats.
