After more than two decades, guitarist-vocalist Mike DeAngelis
is parting ways with Hair of the Dog
. The guitarist-vocalist announced his departure from the popular Celtic folk-rock band yesterday (Sunday, November 3) on his Facebook page
“It is with great sadness that I write this posting a bit sooner than I had anticipated. As of today, I will no longer be a member of Hair of the Dog. It’s time for me to move in a different direction. I wish nothing but continued success for the ‘gentlemen’ on stage. They’ve been like family to me for a long, long time.”
DeAngelis will continue to perform with his jazz band, the Standard Clams, including their upcoming performance at Daisy Baker’s in Troy at 6:30pm on Friday (November 8). Meanwhile, next up for Hair of the Dog is a Full Moon Party at the Hofbrau at Warners Lake in Berne at 5pm on Saturday, November 16.
