Two guys from Ohio and New Hampshire caught up with each other in Key West, and started making music, loads of it, together, separately and with other folks in different bands.
Together, Nick Brownell (the Ohio half) and David Bryce Warren (New Hampshire) are the Raw Dawggs, a two-piece, electrified alternative rock duo that plays everyone’s favorite covers while “bringing the rawness to the island,” as their merchandise declares.
Warren is the drummer and Brownell is the guitarist and singer.
“They produce a sound that is massive and it can be heard throughout the island whenever they perform,” says Warren’s website.
Brownell was voted Entertainer of the Year earlier this year at the first-ever Key West Music Awards. Warren plays six nights a week at several Duval Street clubs and bars and has released two original albums on which he writes, records and plays every instrument and sings every song.
The Raw Dawggs will perform on Thursday, June 23 at 8 p.m. at Key West Theater as part of its “Summer Sounds: A Local-ish Concert Series” running from June to August.
