For more than half a century, Pavlov's Dog has been experimenting with the boundaries of the prog rock genre. The legendary band, whose greatest asset is singer David Surkamp's high alto voice, is coming to De Vooruit in Ghent on Friday 20 September.

The legend of Pavlov's Dog saw the light of day in 1973, after drummer Mike Safron brought the band together. Along with vocalist David Surkamp, bassist Rick Stockton and violinist Siegfried Carver, he unleashed their debut album on the world in 1975. "Pampered Menial" is still burned into everyone's memory as one of the most brilliant debuts of all time. Among other things, the song "Julia" is still one of the highlights during their concerts. Even though American radio thought their unique sound did not fit into the era of the dreaded "corporate rock formulas," Pavlov's Dog stuck their middle finger in the air and continued to do their own thing nicely with their second album "At the Sound of the Bell," among others.

During the recording of their third studio album, the band reached a breaking point and decided to put a stop to Pavlov's Dog. But when the band reunited briefly in 2004 for a reunion concert in their hometown, they all felt the magic again. The lure of their fans is answered with albums like "Echo & Boo" and "Prodigal Dreamer. Pavlov's Dog has got a taste for it again and the notorious band is back touring the world with their mysterious music. Come and see these living legends on Friday, September 20 at the legendary De Vooruit concert hall!
