MAPLEWOOD, NJ - If you’ve got time to kill and no money in your wallet you can party with Tycoon Dog while the sun is shining and weather is sweet. The band performed this past Sunday at Maplewood Memorial Park in the heart of its green amphitheater. Tycoon Dog got their groove on surrounded by friends, children and furry companions too.

The weather was breezy yet comfortable as passersby lent their ears and settled in a spot along the hillside with their children to dance, climb trees, strum their air guitar and play ball.

The neighborhood “Dogs” have been playing non-profit music performances since 2007 to give back to their community and encourage kids of all ages to experience live music. They perform at this location every month if you are searching to socialize, spend time with family perhaps pack a picnic to sit back to listen to some tunes. Their music brushes upon rock, blues, reggae, funk, soul, pop, hillbilly country to name a few vibes. Diversity streams not only through its band members, but the range in its style.

Jonathan Duckett has been a loyal fan and fellow sound technician for six years describes Tycoon Dog in one word as “fun.”

The musical compilation is fully enjoyable by any age group which is why resident and lead singer/guitarist in the band Scott Bailey created Tycoon Dog with his fellow band mates. The friendly neighborhood band delivers several performances in the tri-state area you can attend and enjoy for free with the whole family.

“We thank you for coming out and enjoying the original Tycoon Dog tunes with Tycoon grooves” said Maplewood resident and lead singer/ guitarist Scott Bailey pleased with the turnout.
