Oklahoma City's own Shortt Dogg specializes in '80s dance, Motown, top 40, old-school funk & soul and rock-n-roll music and is one of the Southwest's most requested cover bands. Shortt Dogg delivers a dazzling, high-energy show...complete with tight musicianship, silky-smooth harmonies and powerhouse lead vocals. By any measure, Shortt Dogg is one of the most talented bands to come out of the southwest United States. The ability to fuse R&B and jazz with an irresistible "funk" and intelligent lyrical content has gained the band and extremely loyal following among fans and great respect from their performing peers. From their inception, producer Johann Kimbro choose to develop a group that would fuse traditional vocal group styling’s with funk, neo-soul and hip-hop rhythms. All of the vocalist cut their "musical teeth" in the church where they learned to harmonize. It is this combination of sweet harmonies and sophisticated funk that has propelled Shortt Dogg's success and secured the groups reputation as one of the "southwest's best party bands". Winner of the 2016 Oklahoma Gazette Music Award for Best R&B Band.
