New Salty Dog

The Duluth-based funk and jam group formerly known as Jacob Mahon & the Salty Dogs underwent a name change in 2020. Newer and saltier than ever, the rechristened New Salty Dog released the album Pecan, Pecan later that year and is working on a new record for 2022. The band is essentially a trio now, but often adds a variety of players. The core group consists of Jacob Mahon on vocals and guitar, Owen Mahon on drums and Calvin “Calzone” Lund on bass. Additional players are expected to be added to the lineup on the Thursday-night trolley set: Cavan “Cav Patty” Denning, Bryan “Lefty” Johnson and “Boss Mama” Colleen Myhre. “That’s the plan,” Jacob Mahon said of the proposed lineup of performers, “but we’re not always good at sticking to plans.”
