In 1973, a barely-out-of-his-teens Wilmington guitarist piled his gear into the drummer’s Chevy van to play their very first gig at a University of Delaware dorm. More than 4 decades, over 8,000 live shows, and some 15 million albums sold worldwide later, that same maverick guitar-slinger is still making electrifying music, still thrilling audiences, and still the most bad-to-the-bone performer in rock.

Led by Richard Olate and his son Nicholas Olate, the Olate Dogs are a high-energy, fast-paced theatrical act filled with doggie friendly and amazing pet tricks.

Richard grew up in South America in a poor family. A third generation circus performer, Richard has been in the spotlight since he was 12, and through hard work and constant struggle, he made it to the United States at the age of 33.

His dream to have his own dog variety show has come true as he currently has four completely different dog acts. Most of Richard's dogs are rescues from shelters.

The Olate Dogs can be seen at NBA halftimes and touring the country making kids of all ages laugh and smile.

Their debut album, "The Olate Dogs' Christmas", features the dogs singing to classic holiday favorites.
