Dogs Return to the ATL on Friday July 29! 

We are fired up for a summer show in Atlanta at a venue we've been wanting to play for some time...The Red Clay Music Foundry (formerly Red Clay Theatre), run and promoted by Eddie Owen Presents...of Eddie's Attic fame, of course. We'll be bringing with us some more South Carolina with us...our good friends and great band/singers/songwriters Finnegan Bell, now also based in Charleston. Don't miss them, and if you're in town that weekend, please make plans to join us and buy your tickets in advance, by clicking HERE. See you on the 29th in Duluth!

4th Annual Charleston Music Hall Show & Benefit TICKETS ON SALE NOW! Starting 6/30/16! 

It's already that time again....for tickets to go on sale for our annual event we started back in 2013 with our 25th Anniversary....With the 2014 show, we brought in MUSC's Children's Hospital as a charity partner, and we have run our yearly "homecoming celebration" as a benefit for what is now the SHAWN JENKINS MUSC CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL CAMPAIGN....and also for pediatric cancer research--and as such, we'll be announcing our association with the PRESS ON FOUNDATION later this summer.

Our 4th Annual Homecoming and 28TH ANNIVERSARY Benefit will take place WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 28 AT THE CHARLESTON MUSIC HALL. Special guests will be announced beginning this summer and throughout the Fall.

AND the important thing for now is....the best tickets are going on sale this week! And as we have in years past, there is a VIP experience that can be purchased for this show as well, including a preview night on Tuesday, December 27, at the Music Farm in Charleston.
