Dogtown Roadhouse presents MG Bailey in concert on Saturday, March 25, 2023.

MG Bailey, a gentle giant of a man armed with a formidable array of unconventional instruments from Chicago, Illinois, has been blending punk, blues, pop and soul influences for his entire musical career, without any regard to what sells at the time and forming a one man band.

When his last band broke up in 2008, he found himself in his basement, tearing apart forgotten, half-broken instruments and duct-taping them back together to form the first loadout for his current venture. He experimented with electronics and looping for about a year and a half, but his mind kept returning to a street musician he’d seen in Memphis a decade previously, busking on Beale Street with a homemade guitar, a couple of drums, and a bucket on the ground. Feeling the pull of something more organic and tangible, he began incorporating things like found objects and analog effects pedals, tightening up his rhythm section chops, adding and removing elements from his live rig as inspiration struck or experiments fizzled.

Indeed, M.G. Bailey stands out based on sheer, undeniable authenticity. Upon seeing him perform, there is no doubt that his complicated setup of pedals and processors and drums and jangly things is only onstage with him because it’s the most effective way he’s found to express his song and furthermore, there is no doubt that the songs take center stage.

Still, it’s Bailey’s bracingly honest, jarringly emphatic self-assessment that may be the best descriptor of his music. MG brings a full sound and unique approach that can catch an audience off guard in the best way. Lots of laughs and crowd interaction that have kept the drinks flowing and the toes tapping!


Dogtown Roadhouse is located at 302 South Locust Street in Floyd, VA.
