Pete “Big Dog” Fetters


» See more local bands


The members: Pete “Big Dog” Fetters of Detroit is a slide guitar specialist, but also performs vocals and harmonica on his songs.

The history: Fetters has been playing music full time for more than 20 years, working all over the Midwest including Chicago, Ohio and Indiana. In August ’03, Big Dog released his seventh album, titled South From Detroit City, an 11-song live set recorded at Memphis Smoke in Royal Oak. The disc was released on Pete’s own Two Sisters Records.

What's up with the name: Fetters’ nickname, “Big Dog,” was tagged when people starting calling him that in reference to his original song “Be A Big Dog,” which he wrote many years ago.

The style: Describing his style as roadhouse blues, Fetters is influenced by modern slide guitarists such as Duane Allman, Sonny Landreth, Derek Trucks and George Thorogood. His sound also could be labeled as blues/rock or Americana music.

Got anything recorded? South From Detroit City is available through Big Dog’s official Web site at www.petebigdog.com for $13.97. All orders through the site also will receive an autographed picture and button as a bonus.

Tell us your future? Fetters hopes for the forthcoming are pretty clear and simple.

“Keep writing good, quality original music, get a new recording out every few years and continue to make a living playing music,” he said.
