The ClayDogs are a four piece band, based out of Lincoln, CA. The band was formed in July 2013; with an intended focus on original music. It is the resulting collaborative efforts of Bruce Tuttle (songwriter/vocals/guitar), Ron Smit (bass/vocals), Scotty Fretz (lead) and Steve Gust (drums/percussion). Their musical style swings from light rock to some jamming acoustics, combined with meaningful lyrics. The band has a small “unplugged” feel, but with a surprisingly big sound. The ClayDogs have played various venues and festivals in Sacramento and the surrounding areas.
