Dog and Pony Show is 14 years young.

When John McClain first opened our studio out of his home in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada he couldn't have known how far it would go and how many ears would hear his work. Today, John McClain and his partner James von Boldt  are carving Dog and Pony Show's sonic destiny with the same old work ethic and a brand new vigor.
