Eva and the Dogs Boys are a trio from the Finger Lakes area playing acoustic & bluegrass music- with attitude!

John (MandoBoy) Denniston - Mandolin and Tenor/Lead Vocals JD cant hide anymore - he’s developed into one of the Northeast’s top mandolin players. As a lifelong resident of Palmyra. He and his patient wife, Maureen have three children. Steeped in the classic Bill Monroe mandolin-playing tradition, John has developed into a serious musical performer. “MandoBoy” has also greatly extended his vocal range to become a key lead and tenor voice. He has been a part of Seneca County Bluegrass, Lisa Bigwood and The Washday Band, and Cabin Fever. 

Tom (TBone) Farley – Guitar virtuoso and sometimes old time banjo picker brings a thoughtful appreciation for all kinds of acoustic music and usually is pivotal in the instrumental arranging of the new songs. As a guitarist and frequent lead vocalist (he also sings baritone), “Bone” owns our single microphone so we’re extra special nice to him. His playing experience includes Lisa Bigwood and The Washday Band, Cuttin’ the Grass, The New Aliens, and many revisits of The Dugway Dirt Band. 

Elaine (Eva) Verstraete Bassist and lead/tenor vocalist is a fast study. Elaine is in real life a respected illustrator and university faculty member, who draws from a wide-ranging musical background. She has a restless desire to sing almost anything and has drawn heavily from her strong family musical history. Eva draws from a wonderful musical experience with Lisa Bigwood and The Washday Band and is currently one half of regional recording artists , birds-on-a-wire, with her close friend, Brooke Pevear.
