Dog Talk features veteran Twin Ports musicians putting a fresh twist on 1990s alternative rock. The band was a hit at Homegrown’s new band night in 2018, but required a respite after lead vocalist Kris Hagstrom suffered a horse-riding mishap. The band was back in the saddle again for a January show at Beaner’s Central. “People who knew about our hiatus situation were excited to see us back in action and said we played as though we never took a break,” says drummer Jim Hagstrom. Dog Talk also includes Bob Bursell on lead guitar and Blake Konrad on rhythm guitar. Heather Millis contributes bass and backing vocals. The band is recording its first album and will have a digital 45 available at its Homegrown show.
