These are the members of The Strumdogs:
Greg Pallay - Bass guitar and Lead Vocals
Greg is originally from NYC and a veteran of the NYC music scene, playing with bands such as Hookie Spooner, Catapault, The Time Bandits and Counterpoint. He has also performed with original acts such as City Streets, Citirock and Sexton. He's been playing bass for over 40 years. Greg brings his high energy and strong vocals to The Strumdogs, as well as his interaction with the crowd that gets them excited and keeps them involved. He arrived on the Charleston music scene in 2007, playing with bands such as No Exit Strategy and The COOL.
Tom Kirkpatrick - Guitars, Keyboards and Lead Vocals
Tom began his professional music career in college as a guitarist and vocalist for the band Crossfire. He went on to play with Goldsmith (who did a short stint as Bo Diddley’s backup band and warmup band for the Tams) and Back of My Hand before answering a Craigslist ad to join The Strumdogs. At that time there were three guitarists so Tom added keyboards and slide to his repertoire in order to add variety to the band’s song list and range to it’s live performances.
Tex Curtis - Drums and Lead Vocals
Tex originally hails from Savannah Ga. He and a childhood friend met, became inseparable, and formed the band Budda. They later created a more well-known band called Choice. Choice toured the East Coast for 8 years. More recently, Tex and a fellow vocalist formed St. Bryan's Taxi, which was locally known for their Alternative music style. In the fall of 2012, Tex received word that an up and coming band needed a drummer. Tex decided to join The Strumdogs. “Becoming a part of The Strumdogs was definitely one of the best musical decisions I have made in years" he was quoted as saying.
Ethan Aneshansley - Guitar and Background Vocals
Ethan Aneshansley shares lead and rhythm guitar duties in the Strumdogs. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Ethan is a veteran of numerous NY, Boston and Charleston touring bands as well as a graduate of the Berklee College of Music. The wide variety of songs in the Strumdog arsenal allows him to stretch out across many styles and help the band's "something for everyone" approach guarantee a great night of exciting live music. When not performing, Ethan can be found searching Charleston for the latest micro-brew creations and the perfect "NY Style" pizza.
