Thom Pallozola and David Henry Spangler make up the ukulele duo "Flea Bitten Dawgs". Voted “Best Old Band” in St. Louis in 2011, the Dawgs have played all around the St. Louis area in a variety of venues as well as on KDHX 88.1 radio and with the Whole Earth Nuclear Ukulele Orchestra. They have toured the Southern and Midwestern United states, winning fans along the way. Their laid back style and keen musicianship appeals to audiences across the board. From Jazz to rock and roll and original compositions, You may have seen them perform at the Ukulele World Congress in Needmore, Indiana. This time around, the Dawgs will also be joined by Mountain Dawg percussionist, Lee Kram, all the way from North Carolina.

After many years singing in bands and running around like a crazy person, Uncle Elvis, aka Mike Hind, finally picked up an instrument in his extremely late 20s (41!).
After losing his job in Christmas of 2011, he buckled down and bust his narrow, pink heinie and put a solo act together, just him and a ukulele.
Regularly appearing at Bermuda Bistro at The Beach and Tribe Road Kitchen in Hamilton, Bermuda, and the Fairmont Southampton Hotel, he’s fallen in love with performing.

Laughing, finding joy, singing along and, in a bizarre twist, lovingly heckling passers-by and audience members, Mike has found his favorite thing to do. Funny, irreverent and spontaneous, with an eclectic song list ranging from the sappiest love songs to some of the latest pop tunes, he’ll burst into song at a moment’s notice, sometimes in the middle of another song!

He recently released a CD “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things!”, another source of joy for him, with people he loves helping every step of the way, from funding through indiegogo.com to helping him write the songs on it. This truly was a labour of love.

A high point of his year is going to the Ukulele World Congress, the birthplace of the Uncle Elvis & The Flea Bitten Dawgs Ukulele Road Trip”. It’s a place where joy, love and friendship are the only important things… a concept learned there and continued through the tour and in every live show.
