Irving The Talking Dog Presents “The Smiling Eyes”

Inspired by the roots of Rock n ’Roll, the jingle jangle of their electric 12 string guitars, and the creation of catchy Pop melodies lush with smooth four part harmonies The Smiling Eyes are creating very special original music.

And it all started with a talking dog? The answer is yes!

On September 22nd, 2006 Todd Oliver- and his dog Irving- appeared on Late Show with David Letterman on CBS as the feature finale act of ”Ventriloquist Week”. Their performance was a hit! A month later the act appeared on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson- another hit!  Soon Todd’s publisher called and the two discussed Todd’s various talents. (Besides being a ventriloquist Todd is also a musician and songwriter).

The timing was perfect. Todd had also met three other musicians/songwriters with similar tastes, talents, and goals. Todd, along with Brian Duvall, drums/vocals, Mike Donoho, guitar/vocals, and Marcus Willett, bass/vocals, have developed a musical magical chemistry. The results :  a new debut album  of original songs already receiving rave reviews a new show touring Performing Arts Theaters during the winter months, and beginning March 1st 2011 a 2 year contract in the show “Todd Oliver and Friends”  at the Jim Stafford theater in Branson Missouri.

Now it’s your turn. Listen to The Smiling Eyes, and your eyes will be smiling too!
