Catch us THIS WEEKEND at Music Farm Columbia & TawbaFest Rock Hill! 

Columbia! You won't want to miss this show on Friday 9/11. We've got a killer lineup for you including ourselves, The Distributors (Murray from Tootie & The Jones), & The Nick Clyburn Band! If you haven't been to the Columbia Music Farm yet - you've got to come check it out. Saturday, we head up 77 and will play the 2nd annual TawbaFest at Riverwalk in Rock Hill! It will be a great day with friends with over 25 food vendors, regionally brewed craft beer, wine, and mixed drinks available for sale- all while jamming out to live music along the river, sounds pretty great, right? Can't wait to see everyone this weekend!

Bobby Houck with Phillip Lammonds in Pawleys Island THIS SUNDAY! 

Anyone down on the Grand Strand this Labor Day weekend won't want to miss the rare duo performance of Blue Dogs lead singer Bobby Houck with Blue Dog Emeritus Phillip Lammonds, who is now a Curb Publishing songwriter and writing up a storm with the best of them! Expect Blue Dogs classics, including many songs Phillip and Bobby wrote together, plus some new Lammonds gems that Bobby probably hasn't heard either! In the Hammock Shops Gazebo from 7-10pm.

Just Added: Tawba Fest! Rock Hill SC Saturday 9/12/15 

This 2nd Annual event expects to draw twice as many as its first year last year....which brought 5000 folks out! It's "Fitness, Food, and Fun" and there will be activities, food, beverages, and music featuring the Blue Dogs full band! Held down on the river in the new Riverwalk development in Rock Hill, it's happening from 2-10pm, and it's sure to be a great time! Go to www.tawbafest.com for more info! But it's free to the public, and on, rain or shine! Music will happen from 6-9:30pm. Opening band tba--and Blue Dogs play 7:15-8:15 and 8:30-9:30!

Blue Dog Days of Summer... 

Just a note to thank everyone who came out to see us in May, June, and July--and to wish everyone a wonderful rest of your summer! Like you, we like a little time off when the Dog Days arrive...so we'll take a break from shows through the month of August, but will be back in action this Fall, starting with The Music Farm/Columbia SC on 9/11/15, and of course ramping up with anticipation to our 3rd Annual Homecoming at the Charleston Music Hall on Sunday, December 27! But don't worry, we'll be checking in, and keeping the merch store open, and answering any inquiries about bookings or anything else. Stay in touch, and get your CMH show tickets soon, as we are back to doing just one show and know it will sell out sooner than later! Be safe, and we'll see you soon.

JULY 24-25: Raleigh & Charlotte! 

Ladies and Gentledogs, The full band hits the weekend trail one more time before we take our traditional August summer break....and before Hank Futch heads North for his new adventures....so come join us for a great weekend of summer jams and a rousing send-off for our boy Hank...and speaking of old school, we are coming back to Raleigh and going back in time to the Pour House, the site of some awesome Blue Dogs shows....we think it's the perfect time and place to come back to Raleighwood. And on Saturday, we'll return to the Neighborhood Theatre and look forward to a great show as usual....opening bands each night, Friday the Nasty Habits, a local Raleigh Americana band, and Saturday our friends Finnegan Bell, an incredible SC folk-rock band. FOR BOTH NIGHTS, advance tickets are $5 cheaper, so go to the "shows" page and click on the appropriate link. SEE you next weekend!

We are looking forward to returning to Asheville..first of all, the Southern Conference basketball tournament is in town, so Hank (College of Charleston) and Bobby (Davidson) each have a "Dog" in the hunt! Looking forward to seeing our friends in town for that. We have a great opening band from Athens GA, The Corduroy Road, opening the show, so the show will start promptly at 9, and the Dogs will take the stage around 10.
