The Solar Dogs is truly a beloved home grown band which has been together over five years now, and have a loyal following in Coconut Grove, where they sponsor an annual music-art-food party at Shell Lumber – the Big Howl In The Wood. Much of their music is original, but they also cover an ecclectic mix of blues, folk, and other music styles. Fortunately they do leave The Grove and perform elsewhere in town so we were able to snag them for the Acoustic Underground. This is really a special collection of talent and fine people.
Eric Wagner sings lead and harmony vocals, plays lead guitar and mandolin. Much of the band repertoire consists of original songs written by Eric. He also performs the same material in a different genre with his band RIC A native of Ohio, Eric teaches Clinical Psychology at Florida International University.
Zip Robertson sings lead and harmony vocals, plays rhythm guitar and harmonica. As a harp player, he frequently accompanies Miami favorite Valerie Wisecracker. As a singer-songwriter, he occasionally performs solo sets at parties and local venues. A native of Kentucky Zip is a United States Administrative Law Judge for the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals.
Bill Kunz plays fiddle, mandolin and banjo with the Solar Dogs. However, he is also renowned for his instrumental stylings on open-tuned guitar, charango, sitar and other exotic stringed instruments. Bill has been a part of the South Florida music scene for many years, and has accompanied countless other performers. Bill is retired as a 737 Captain for Delta Airlines, but continues to work as a pilot instructor for Boeing.
