"The Bash Dogs have a resume to prove their willingness to play for big, rowdy crowds; recently they won KROQ's Battle of the Bands in Southern California. In addition, The Bash Dogs have played for two sold out crowds at the House of Blues, as well as having played multiple college and high school shows."

-Golden Voice

"To classic rock fans, it’s six songs of comfort food, with some tastylicks from singer-guitarist Nate Barrett and some big grooves from bassist Schmok. And while it’s next to impossible in this era to make classic rock sound fresh, the trio gives it a shot [...] Their sheer power and rawness put them in league with other garage-rockers who serve up antidotes to all that is overpolished. Bash your heads accordingly."

-BuzzBands LA

"This is sheer brilliance in songwriting, execution, and production. Though the quality here should stand beyond comparison, to overlook the Jim Morrison style of Nate’s vocal delivery would be admittedly ignoring the elephant in the room. On that note, The Bash Dogs could somewhat be likened to an alternate-history revisioning of the Doors, but certainly not limited to them, and that’s only part of the story."


"Instantly bursting in with groove-fuelled riffs and a pounding beat, opening track ‘Momma Don’t Know’ gives a clear indication of how heavy The Bash Dogs are willing to go, occupying the space between punk rock and the darker end of the indie rock spectrum. ‘Let’s Get Saucy’ comes next, giving off a live show presence before fading into a dreamy, shoegaze track as it nears the end of the song."

-Shout It Loud Reviews

"Oftentimes artists are playing a completely different song on their albums compared to how they perform it live. However, with The Bash Dogs, if you’ve listened to this EP, you’ve basically seen them live. All you’re missing is the moshing…well, in this case, bashing."

대표적인 밴드는 더 배시 도그(The Bash Dogs, 사진)다. 라디오 방송국 KROQ 주최 경연대회에서 우승한 이 밴드엔 혼혈 한인 네이트(기타, 리드보컬), 제레미(드럼) 바렛 형제가 속해 있다. 

더 소스 측은 "록과 레게, 잔잔한 음악을 포함한 다양한 장르를 즐길 수 있는 행사"라며 "닭의 해를 맞아 보다 활기찬 한 해를 기원하기 위해 루스터(수탉) 록으로 행사명을 지었다"고 밝혔다.

"Who hasn’t engaged in some good bashing from time to time.  Only, most of us are guilty of it around the office water cooler or via a snarky Snapchat (or two). But with The Bash Dogs, there’s nothing mean spirited about this LA band’s bashing.  This trio’s so chill when you meet them, it’s hard to imagine that the grinding guitar riffs and raw screaming comes as second nature to Nate, Jeremy (Jerm) and Nathan (Schmoky Bear.)"



"Rock n’ Roll with modern pop is what differentiate The Bash Dogs with any other contemporary band with the same goal. Recently, The Orange County boys announced their most recent EP alongside their first headlining tour in the state of Colorado."

"The Bash Dogs sound like they walked from a stage at Woodstock to The Roxy (they actually walked onstage wearing Dalmatian masks, but close enough). In the generation where everyone plays alt rock, they don’t. Their style is clean, loud and pure classic rock."

"With compelling rhythms and electrifying vocals, The Bash Dogs made their Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) debut on the campus during U-hour Tuesday. As the band rocked out on the stage at University Park, students were seen walking from all directions in search of the explosive sound. The surge of musical electricity that The Bash Dogs provided was the perfect form of escapism, in which week 10 requires."

-The Campus Crop

“There are bands that take classic rock and follow it by the book. Ironically, this is the epitome of what rock stands against – the anthem is do your own thing and forget what anyone else thinks. Then, there are bands who take classic rock and add their own spin. They have fast paced, make-you-move instrumentation with fresh, sometimes soulful vocals, but leave plenty of time for that shredding guitar solo that made them fall in love with rock ‘n’ roll in the first place. That is The Bash Dogs.”

-Creative Control Magazine

"Three, two, one...Bash Dogs. Or at least that’s what sophomore communication studies major Christopher “Nate” Barrett and brother Jeremy Barrett thought they heard during NASA rocket launches as kids. Thus came the name of their band. “We view ourselves as just a bunch of teenage dogs – a bunch of grimy, street, teenage dogs that want to bash our brains out,” said Nate."

-The Los Angeles Loyolan

"The best way to describe these young surfing rockers can be found through two adjectives, unique and talented."
