Kick The Dog is on hiatus;

Thank you for ten great years!

Named one of

Minnesota's Best Cover Bands by CBS!

Kick The Dog Band Heads to the Doghouse.  

After a decade, Kick The Dog will be playing our final shows before taking a hiatus.  We’ve always tried to do more than just playing cover songs well; we wanted to be fun, entertaining, and involve our fans in the party!  Our band’s lineup is the best it’s ever been; we’re a family.  But a lot changes over ten years…

While in Kick The Dog, our members have:

  • Seen relationships come and go
  • Brought about a half dozen kids into our lives
  • Experienced numerous career changes
  • Adopted pets
  • And seen our favorite pet companions pass away

Through all this change, and over the course of hundreds of shows, we’ve made sure Kick The Dog kept rockin’.  However, we’ve recently decided to put the band on hiatus and do some other things.  We encourage you to come out and see our other musical endeavors and continue supporting live, local music.

We want to thank our sound techs, vendors, venues, and especially our fans for all the support over the past decade!  We couldn’t have done it without you!

Rick 'Rock' Paukert and Kick The Dog Band

PS.  It was like seventy in Dog-years!
