Keanu Reeves Reunites With His Band Dogstar

Keanu Reeves plays with Dogstar after 20 years.

Over the weekend, Keanu Reeves reunited with his Dogstar bandmates. The band performed at the 2023 BottleRock Napa Valley festival. Despite being renowned for his iconic roles in Hollywood, the John Wick star has also explored his passion for music as the band’s bassist. Though often overshadowed by his acting career, Dogstar achieved a modest but loyal following during their active years since forming in 1991.

The band consists of Robert Mailhouse on drums and Bret Domrose as the lead vocalist and guitarist.

Their sound can be described as alternative rock, influenced by the grunge movement of the era. Dogstar’s music blended catchy melodies, introspective lyrics, and energetic guitar riffs, creating a distinctive sonic signature. Despite Reeves’ fame, Dogstar managed to carve out their path in the music industry. The band toured extensively, performing at various venues across the United States and even internationally. While their success didn’t reach astronomical heights, Dogstar developed a dedicated fanbase. They garnered positive reviews for their live shows, where Reeves’ musical abilities shone alongside his charismatic stage presence.

Following their breakup in the early 2000s, Dogstar’s impact on the music scene may have been overshadowed by Reeves’ continued success in the film industry. Nevertheless, their music remains a testament to Reeves’ multifaceted talents and creative endeavors. Despite a lesser-known chapter in his career, it holds a special place in his artistic journey.
