Harpdog resides in Vancouver, BC where he leads his own trio and quartet of hot local players churning out blues on the jazzy mellower side. He also leads The Harpdog Brown Band which is a gutsy traditional Chicago blues band with John R Hunter (drums), Jordan Edmonds (guitar) and George Fenn (bass).
