The next show at Cooldog House Concerts near Kenton will feature Brock Zeman with special guest Todd Murray Saturday, Jan. 27 at 3 p.m.

Over the course of 11 albums, Ottawa-area singer songwriter Brock Zeman has built a reputation as a writer of great depth and passion, through his thoughtful, often personal songs. But he’s got a rough, rockin’ side as well. Joined on tours across the United States and Canada by collaborator Blair Hogan and often by drummer Dylan Roberts, Zeman and his crew can put on a powerful show that has attendees rocking as much as feeling the stories that he tells in song.

Influenced by a range of classic rock artists and everything in between Todd Murray has shaped his dynamic and powerful voice to fit his unique style and tone. Various projects throughout his years of playing from "Murray and White" an acoustic rock duo to his full band project in late 2012 called "Drone Motive" have entertained audiences with their original songs and their inspiring performances.

Todd Murray has performed from Philadelphia to Charlottesville, Virginia at festivals, competitions and venues. His sound has been described as timeless and instantly recognizable, and yet completely unique and adventurous.

The suggested donation is $15 per person, or $12 for ages 10-18 and for active military personnel with ID.
