Among the promise and palm tree lined streets of Hollywood lives the genre bending 3-piece rock band Dogstar. Bret Domrose on guitar, Rob Mailhouse on drums and an absolute legend, Keanu Reeves bringing up the low end on bass. The overall vibe you pick up on immediately when around them is that Dogstar is exactly who they want to be. There’s comfort and an ease within this band of good friends full of banter and funny jabs between songs. Their music inspiration range is wide. From indie, folk, pop, Bret’s love of 80’s music, mixed with a pinch of punk as Keanu warms up with a Breeders riff and discusses his love for J Mascis. The band is pure joy and what is most striking upon seeing them play live is the collective energy that resonates with a type of innocence and love for the sole purpose of playing music. This is music meant to be played loud and played live and we are absolutely thrilled to have them in the famous Sunset Sound Studios do just that here on Cardboard Sessions 17.
