After a 20-year break, 'Dogstar' reunites at the BottleRock music festival in Napa Valley for the first time after starting back up in the 90s. Keanu Reeves, one of Hollywood's biggest actors and one of the sexiest men in entertainment today, has reunited with his old grunge rock band "Dogstar", which was formed 32 years ago.
It is with great excitement that the actor is set to perform with the band at the BottleRock music festival in Napa Valley this weekend after rehearsing in secret. There are three musicians in the band: his old friend Bret Domrose, a composer and musician who plays the lead guitar, sings, and Robert Mailhouse, a drummer, plays the bass guitar.
A third album might be in the works by the time the group breaks up, but the group has recorded two studio albums before breaking up in 2002. Among others, Duran Duran, Lizzo, and Paris Jackson, daughter of Michael Jackson, will perform at the festival from May 26 to 28.
Keanu Reeves has always been acknowledged as a good bass player, and his passion for playing has led him to join a band in the early 90s with which he has shared a musical interest in grunge music that he enjoyed playing with.
It was mainly because of his upcoming films that they broke up, but also because Bret Domrose and Robert Mailhouse both work full-time jobs, and the fact that neither has a lot of time for the music. But now they've rehearsed new material, coordinated schedules with a Hollywood actor, and it seems they'll entertain more people in the future.
“Honestly, didn’t expect this. It makes us want to play out even more. We will be rolling out some new music this summer, followed by some gigs. As soon as it’s all figured out we will let everyone know immediately.
So much to do, but rest assured, we are on it and have assembled a fantastic team that are helping us. We are also going to make a music video to support our first tune… Can’t wait to share our new music with everyone.
It’s the most satisfying and meaningful batch of songs we’ve ever done. Thanks again for being so patient with us. We truly have the best, most loyal fans!”- they wrote.
