About Subliminal Dog Heads (SDH)

The concept is simple... Hawk Merlin Studios hires musicians using donated funds (from the "Kennel Club") to play charity sets at various events to help HMS raise money for select local and regional charities.

The "Kennel Club" is a small group of sponsors/supporters that quietly support Hawk Merlin Studios and David Bunker with this endeavor.

rotating musicians will perform as subliminal dog heads for each event!

             our inaugural event held                September 16, 2017 was a huge success! wE RAISED $6,948 FOR AREA eMERGENCY rESPONDERS.




we hope you enjoyed our inaugural BENEFIT PERFORMANCE to support your FIRST RESPONDERS!
