The joint's always jumpin' as this seasoned band of professionals gets 'em dancing.
From the Santa Cruz Sentinel:
"Listening to these guys at Locals’ Night, you’ll feel like you’re in a Detroit Motown nightclub and a New Orleans House party. " - No Jive!

Grammy nominee Cindy Edwards always reaches down, pulls out the best part of a song, and then holds it up in front of her audience as if to say, "This is what I'm talking about!" Monterey Bay veteran vocalist and front man Bobby Mariano is our newest member of the Road Hogs, adding yet another strong voice to our musical offerings. You may remember Bobby from the Monterey bands the Lovin' Sound and Those Guys.
Well established Santa Cruz based band at 24 years with multiple lead and harmony singers and an extensive repertoire of dance and listening classics that spans multi generations of audiences. Totally self contained and able to configure ourselves for anything from a hopping night dance club, an outdoor festival, to an intimate acoustic setting.
Our personnel are consummate musicians who when not performing with the Road Hogs are playing or recording with with Vince Gill, David Laflamme performing the music of It's A Beautiful Day, Dick Clark Productions, Rank Strangers, Michael Nesmith, Leslie Uggums, the Osmonds, James Taylor, Paul Rodgers, and many more artists. The Road Hogs have shared the stage with Average White Band, Sons of Champlin, Hellecasters, Bone Shakers, and Blue Oyster Cult, to name just a few

Quote from BD 2-2013:
Central Cali folks.... I just got back from a show at Pono WHICH WAS NOT HAWAIIAN. Can you believe it? Went to handle the door for a band which included two friends, tho I had never heard them play before. I was blown away by the Road Hogs. They are a Santa Cruz group who can play everything, and play it incredibly well. They took me through many parts of my love of music: blues, r & b, reggae, rock, and more, that I had not visited for a long while Sadly, I didn't hear any Hawaiian but I'll encourage them to work on that.
Look for and attend gigs by the Road Hogs. You'll go away either tired from dancing, or simply feeling blissed-out from hearing new and old songs that you love. You can thank me later.
Note from a prior Fundraiser:
I just wanted to send another big THANK YOU to all of you. Without your help we wouldn't have had any success. In the end we were able to raise $11,000 for Kevin. Add 2K more that has come in through other donations and I call it a huge success.
You have also generated a new fan club and a long list of followers who will keep track of your future moves.
Best wishes, DH
