The group made its live debut at the "Giving 2010" benefit event on May 3, 2010 at The Troubadour in Hollywood, California and had so much [fun that we] are going to do some gigs," says Sorum, who calls Perez "the most amazing rock singer." Matt adds, "I am loving playin', man, and these guys play the stuff I grew up with — [LED] ZEPPELIN, [JIMI] HENDRIX, CREAM, FREE, BAD COMPANY, [BLACK] SABBATH, etc. So look out for us."

CARNIVAL OF DOGS is described as a "'70s rock cover band" that "will have you swinging from the rafters and singing along to every song."
