The Skylark Café & Club Presents







Beginning with 2 brothers, Dogstrum's journey is traced to a Seattle suburb basement filled with nothing but spare time and beer laden jam sessions. Legend has it that on a cool breezy night, they set sail and stumbled upon the local Darrell's Tavern weekly open mic. After a few months of confidence building, Dogstrum moved onto the Seattle Circuit. Growing up in Seattle during the 90s has lent Dogstrum their sound which has lovendly been described as "grump-punk" by the local alternative weekly newspaper "The Stranger". After a short stint with Indian native Cody Plaiss (Bass/Po' Brothers/Dirty Rugs), this power rock trio consist of Jake Flatt (Vocals/Guitar), Paul Flatt (Bass) and Trev Flatt (Drums). Dogstrum has been featured as the "Loud and Local Band of the Week" on radio station 99.9 KISW "The Rock" of Seattle. ***PRESS/QUOTES*** “Dogstrum delivers music that flexes between grungy garage and the well ordered lawn of rock ‘n’ roll, that in whatever guise pummels lumps out of the plaster as the pulverizing bass jackhammers the room whilst mewling guitar claws at the arms and percussion flies like a scalded cat which is all brought to context by a growling blues-rock vocal.” - *********************************************** “Seattle’s Dogstrum fucking throws down. Their new single, “Ticket Master”, has all the ruckus energy of a nightclub on fire. Crunchy guitars pair with powerful vocals for some seriously stellar rock n roll.” ‘7 Rad Rock Singles’ *********************************************** "Vintage sound with a twist." -99.9 KISW (the rock) 'Loud and Local Band of the Week' *********************************************** "...local grump-punks Dogstrum." -The Stranger *********************************************** “Dogstrum reminds me of bands on Hype! (Grunge documentary) and stuff from my school years, somewhat distanced from, that I'd missed out on. The sound makes one cozy. They play longer, and louder, and sound more like a grumpy smurf, and don't require a VHS player!” -Dale Anderson, Darrells Tavern
