I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

   "Tommy Marsh & Bad Dog is a red-hot blues outfit. He has a strong crowd showing up on a weekly basis seeing great out-of-town talent with some very hot locals. The Ventura Blues Society sponsors the weekly event, with a featured artist showcased, (with) Tommy Marsh and Bad Dog backing that person. Afterward there is a jam with Bad Dog, that is fun to watch. At some of these jams you can see some real talent come to life. The room was humming with people casually dancing, some more intense than others - all having a wonderful time. If you are in Ventura you need to check out The Tavern. It is a fantastic place with good food and spirits." -  B Noel Barr, Random Lengths News.
    Wailing Guitars, Soulful vocals speak to the listener.... drawing from Blues, soul, country and Southern Rock roots, Tommy Marsh and Bad Dog have a sound you will truly enjoy listening to. Great originals and a few extended guitar solos make Tommy Marsh and Bad Dog a real Jam band -  one you will want come back to see again and again!
