Bio

DOG (Dirty Old Gangsters) is an NYC based crunchy, guitar driven, have a good time, in your face hard rock band, fusing elements of Punk, Glam, and Classic Rock, creating a familiar, fun "we don't take ourselves too seriously" sound. The musical diversity of DOG's members is what makes it special:

Lead Singer, Guitarist, and Front Man WASS STEVENS is as an Actor ("Public Morals," "House of Cards," "Demolition," and the upcoming "Patti Cake$" to name but a few) and NYC Nightlife Impresario. He brings an edge, sense of humor, style, and "go f-ck yourself" attitude to the DOG Crew. His tenor range and nasty guitar licks can be compared to an Axl Rose, Slash, Ronnie James Dio, Keith Richards love child. (Now THAT'S a horrible visual...) Wass co-wrote DOG's first original EP "New York City Hustle" with Alex Valenti.

Bassist ALEX (Alex V) VALENTI has been a musician, producer and sound engineer since the 1985 creation of his first punk band "Noize Police." In 1986, Alex V was an original founder of Elektra's Dancehall/Ska/Reggae band "Skadanks," which has recorded original material, toured with and backed such legendary Reggae artists as Super Cat, Jr. Reid, Terra Fabulous, Das Shiloh, Shinehead, Sister Nancy, Sugar Minott, Jr. Demus, Maxi Priest, Shabba Ranks, and Johnny Osbourne to name a few.

Guitarist JJ SANSAVERINO is signed to Innervision Records, ESP Guitars, and Fuchs Amplifiers, and has been playing, touring, writing and performing in all genres of music for the past 25 years. In addition to DOG, JJ continues to tour worldwide with Reggae legends Maxi Priest, Ky-Mani Marley, and Shaggy, while simultaneously touring to support his 3rd and upcoming Jazz CD "International Groove."

Keyboardist (producer, and bandleader) RICKY (Ricky T) TEPPERBERG is also one of the founding members of "Skadanks." He has played and toured extensively for the past 30 years with many of the major reggae and Caribbean artists, including Dennis Brown, Super Cat, Jr. Reid, Sean Paul and Toots Hibbert. He has also been the bandleader for the High Times Cannabis Cup Band for 20 years.

Drummer MIKE SEVERINO has worked in all genres, including rock n' roll, jazz, ska, and blues, and has toured with Levon Helm, Tony-O, Ari-Up to name a few. DOG's resident hipster- he resides in Rockaway(!)- Mikey is the strong silent type.
