About The Dune Dogs
Conceived and delivered on Ocracoke Island in 2002, the Dune Dogs’ rural blend of hard-core country and southern rock ‘n’ roll prove that a lack of talent and professionalism are not necessarily impediments to good vibes and the “humble endings” of a Dune Dog experience. The Dune Dogs are: Dusty Baker (guitar, bass, vocals); “Hillbilly” Dickerson (guitar, bass, vocals); JimChris Dott (bass, keyboards, mandolin, vocals); Finchman (vocals, harmonics); Dick Turben (drums, percussion, vocals); and Trent D. Goatboy (drums, bass, banjo, percussion, vocals). For more information, visit
