Ladies and gentlemen, welcome, welcome, to 75 Bands in 75 Days, where we’re showcasing some of the best talent that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, at least one band per day, leading up to December 31st, to ring in a new year. This list is in no particular order and it is not a chart or a countdown. It’s merely a list of bands or musicians that we feel are worthy of checking out. The band for day 62 is an Everett band called Sundodger.
Helping to bring back grass-roots independent guitar rock in the Pacific Northwest, Sundodger blends straightforward guitar-driven anthems and simple song writing of classic ’70s rock with contemporary musical influences that define the present day.
The new project was formed in 2014 by long-time band mates and Seattle natives Jeff Norman Ryzr and Dan Engel. The music is influenced by the straightedge punk they loved in the ’80s, the classic rock of the ’70s and the indie rock they produced together through the ’90s and 2000s — all blended together to create a sincere, pounding rock show. Newcomer Scott Laird on bass, brings his own influences from his time spent in Athens, Denver and Chicago. Drummer Darrin Wood also recently joined the group and rounds out a driving rhythm section.
