Today’s pedal line (afternoon edition) is from Dave Hogan. If you have a pedal line (doesn’t have to be in a board) for your rig, please email me a photo, bio, description of pedals and routing to email@example.com. Every Friday I’ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
Hi. Here’s my rig. Hope you share it. I like being part of your group.
Board is a Gator GPT-BL-PWR powered board w/ case.
1. TC Electronic Polytune
2. TC Electronic Mojo Mojo Overdrive
3. Mojo Hand Nebula IV Phaser
4. Voodoo Lab Tremolo
5. Joyo Analog Delay
6. Dunlop Cry Baby Wah (an old one with lots of throw, got used in ’84 for $40)
I just swapped out the Mojo Mojo with my Ibanez Tube Screamer TS-9.
Dave Hogan is a songwriter and musician from Bridgeport, Connecticut; a veteran of three critically- acclaimed music groups, Red One, The Great Upsetters and The Rafter Bats. Beyond his established talents as a songwriter, he is a guitarist and vocalist. His musical style ranges from acoustic Americana and bluegrass to electric-guitar driven alt. country, to improvisational jam band arrangements.
After the dissolution of The Rafter Bats, Dave formed the rock group Graylight Campfire who released albums in October 2008 and February 2010. Dave was invited to participate in a tribute album for Golden Microphone Records, titled Not Before My Time: The Amy O’Neill Songbook (IndepenDisc), and collaborated with Jason P. Krug and Carmen Champagne (of the indie rock duo The Grimm Generation) on their tour and album.
Dave devoted several months making invitations to friends — musicians he’s worked with over the years — to collaborate on some of his songs. Fun Box was released in the Spring of 2011.
In the fall of 2011, Tom Andrukevich reformed his band The Mill Valley Taters, teaming with Dave on lead guitar for a series of “revival” shows.
Dave’s been playing a seemingly endless string of gigs, and has been a repeat guest of The Gathering of the Vibes, Wormtown, Scottypaluza, Berkfest and Keene Music festivals.
“When Dave Hogan comes, he brings the ghosts of the honky tonks and the spirits of Parsons and Marriot, tales of road-weary love and better days ahead. A rare opportunity to see him alive and acoustic. Don’t miss him.”
