Woof Guide to Obscure Catholic Music: Deacon Greg and the Dalmatics

New York cover band Deacon Greg and the Dalmatics is a regular sight on the charity benefit circuit, bringing their low-key mix of contemporary pop tunes and doo wop classics to galas and telethons up and down the east coast. The members of the band, Catholic deacons all, bring a straight-ahead aesthetic to their covers that makes the best use of their combined talents while respecting the source material. On particularly popular tunes the Dalmatics will occasionally add a topical reference or two to the lyrics or a bit of flash to the music. The band plays original compositions only on very rare occasions.

The Dalmatics have recorded no albums together; interested listeners are advised to look for recordings (and the band’s performance schedule) on the band’s website.
