Poi Dog Pondering Schedule

As one of today's most renowned and heralded purveyors of acoustic, rock, soul and orchestral music, Poi Dog Pondering has gained momentum on the world music scene, planting them firmly in the spotlight. They describe themselves as "multi-racial, omni sexual and unafraid to be themselves" as well as "the little big band with the strong back and supple/stubborn heart."

Like most bands, Poi Dog Pondering put a tremendous amount of effort into strengthening their reputation by participating in tours. They did a Street Performance Busking tour, which criss-crossed North America for a year. The bohemian-esque tour consisted of Poi Dog Pondering members touting their music on street corners to earn food and gas money. They even slept outdoors on their travels.

Poi Dog Pondering Background

Established in Waikiki, Hawaii, in 1986, Poi Dog Pondering came to be through the efforts of Dave "Max" Crawford (multi-instrumentalist); Susan Voelz (violinist/vocalist); and Frank Orrall (vocalist/guitarist) - who are the only constants in the lineup since the band's inception. Their debut live performance occurred at the Honolulu Arts Academy. With a name borrowed from an Hawaiian idiom meaning, "mutt," Poi Dog Pondering picked up and moved to Austin, Texas, and cultivated a strong following by keeping a rigorous tour schedule. In 1988, they released a self-titled release followed by Circle Around the Sun in 1989. The latter one drew attention from Columbia Records. The label was impressed with the band's laid-back sense of humor and mastery of different instrumentation. Columbia blended the pair of their original EPs for their eponymous major-label premiere, which along with Wishing Like a Mountain and Thinking Like the Sea, garnered the group a devout fan base.

Despite their initial successes, Poi Dog Pondering didn't have the best relationship with their label. Volo Volo arrived in 1991, but after that, Columbia severed ties with the band. Orrall decided to take a break after that, and the band relocated to the Windy City. During the break, Orrall established the Palm Fabric Orchestra, and Voelz focused on solo projects. When the band re-emerged on the music scene, their sound had shifted toward dance music as reflected on Pomegranate (1995) and Electrique Plummagram (1996). A year later, they premiered their very own label, Plate.tec.tonic. Later on, they dropped Natural Thing (1999); In Seed Comes Fruit (2003); 7 (2008); and Audio Love Letter (2011).

In 2012, Poi Dog Pondering issued a 51-song CD box set and DVD movie "Live at Metro Chicago." The film chronicles the band's early history from their days as buskers to their current status as Chicago orchestral rock and soul musicians.


Poi Dog Pondering Trivia

Besides their eclectic brand of folk and worldbeat music, Poi Dog Pondering is probably most noted for their dynamic lineup. There have been three constant members in the band's history, and the band has also seen membership climb to nearly a dozen.
