Kevin "Snit" Fitzpatrick:  the former founding member of the Hollisters, Kevin "Snit" Fitzpatrick steps up front from the drums to become this bands lead singer and rhythm guitarist. Always a big fan of Chuck Berry "Snit" brings his life of the party persona to the stage when Snit's Dog and Pony Show performs. Although this group has been a part time project for several years beginning in Atlanta in the late 80's, Snit's Dog and Pony show did not become a full time act until March 2001. "This is right where I want to be", Snit says. "It might be about self indulgence but it feels good being a band leader and entertaining the folks" "I've got the line up set and we are ready to rock" says Snit. In his spare time Snit can be found watching his beloved Atlanta Braves and enjoying a German Pilsener Bier! 


Sam Dunlap: Being influenced by Texas guitar players such as Freddie King, T-Bone Walker, Albert Collins and Jimmy Vaughan, and by Chicago greats, Otis Rush Magic Sam and Buddy Guy, Sam's main love Albert and BB King, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed and of course, Chuck Berry. Through out the 80's Sam has played on the road and locally in the Midwest region with The Sons and the Agents playing roots rock, rock-a-billy and original music. Moving to Florida in '88 he focused on playing blues and continued writing and performing original songs. He recorded a record on an independent label with a band called Medicine Man for which wrote most of the music.  He played in blues bands up and down the East Coast Florida blues circuit and performed three years at the Ft. Lauderdale Blues Festival. In '97 Sam moved to Houston ,Texas where he immediately felt right at home musically. 


J.D. DiTullio: J.D.'s first "informal" introduction to drumming would have to be as a baby beating on pots and pans on the kitchen floor while his mother was cooking. J.D.'s first "formal" drum instruction started in Atlanta, GA in the sixth grade as a percussionist in a symphonic band and would continue for the next seven years with traveling, performing, competitions, marching bands and the drum corp.  J.D.'s mom bought him his first drum set for $150.00 while he was in the eighth grade. He taught himself to play by listening to his favorite records. While every drum part taught in school had to be played right handed, J.D. was truly left handed. When at home , he would set up and play the drums left handed not realizing at the time the value of this added dexterity.
For the next 15 years J.D. played, toured and recorded with countless bands ranging from metal, Rock, top 40, oldies, soul, country and Blues. Most notably with "Reddog". It was during this time that he met Snit (around 1988). J.D. played for a while with Snit and the Kickers.  J.D. moved to Houston in 1995 and started playing, recording and touring with Bert Wills. He moved to Austin in ' 97 for one year then back to Houston. J.D. has toured and performed with numerous other bands. Presently he is enjoying his home in the "Dog and Pony Show" band.
