Thank you for helping us raise over $50,000 for MUSC Children's Hospital 

We are still so humbled by everyones generosity from the other weekend. Not only did our shows go off better than expected, but we were able to raise over $50,000 for MUSC Children's Hospital. If that doesn't just warm your heart, then we don't know what will. We'd like to extend a huge thank you to our sponsors who made this all happen:
--the fans who showed up, without whom none of this would be possible, many of whom made donations at the Music Hall the night of the show; 
--our first generation of sponsors, starting with our presenting sponsor TITO'S HANDMADE VODKA....also TACO BELL (JEM Restaurant Group), Max Sparwasser Law Firm LLC, Capitol Materials Coastal, Homegrown Hospitality Group (TBonz, Pearlz, Liberty, etc), Southwind Homes of Charleston, Richard B. Homes CPA LLC, Food for the Southern Soul (Jimmy Hagood), Opal/Langdon's (Patrick Owens), and Finz Bar & Grill;  
--an anonymous donor who matched the 25k we raised, making our total 50k; 
--the Charleston Music Hall, including Charles Carmody, Nick, Andrew Higdon (sound production)

Thanks for 27 great years everyone!!

As you know, our 3RD ANNUAL HOMECOMING SHOW & BENEFIT FOR MUSC CHILDREN'S  HOSPITAL is coming up on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 27. We have been limited in the last two years to 150 VIP tickets, which sold out some weeks back. As of 10am on "Blue Friday" (11/27), and by popular demand, we have arranged to release 50 more VIP tickets to the public!! VIP tickets include premium seating, a VIP laminate, free admission to the "Preview Show and Super Goo Christmas Jam" on Saturday, December 26, at the Music Farm, and exclusive admission to the "Pre-Show Cocktail Reception and Meet & Greet," now being held at the Music Farm the night of the show, from 6pm-7:30pm. The show at the Charleston Music Hall starts promptly at 8:00pm.

There are still a limited number of the next-best seats in the house, our "Tier 1" tickets, at $50. In order to accommodate others, we've decided to create a "Tier 2" level of tickets, available while supplies last, at $30.00, as in years past.

Our announced guests so far for Sunday, December 27, at the CMH are Kev'n Kinney (of Drivin'N'Cryin), Sadler Vaden (from the Jason Isbell Band), Doug Jones (of Cravin' Melon), and Danielle Howle...but we will announce another round of guests...and, of course, there will be surprises we won't know about until the day of the show!

Annual Thanksgiving Eve Show in Flotown! 

Hank and Bobby return to their hometown of Florence SC for the night before Thanksgiving, which we think they've been playing as long as they've been a band...at least 27 years...and it's probably the best night of all of the holiday gatherings, including through Christmas, for old friends and family from the Pee Dee to gather and greet each other to kick off the holiday season. We've got the full band, featuring Florence native Parker Dewitt on drums, and our now-regular guitar/mando combo of Dan Hood on guitar and James Bernabe on mandolin.

For the second year, our show is brought to you by our friends at Victor's Bistro and will be outside in the James Allen Plaza next to Hotel Florence in the heart of downtown Florence. Food and beverage vendors will be on hand! The event goes from 6pm-11pm, with music kicking off at 6:30pm with homegrown Pee Dee country rocker James Scott Bullard performing in an acoustic duo with Jeff Springs...and the Dogs perform from 8:30-10:30! Admission is FREE--just bring yo'selfs and yo' loved ones and join us for a great night!!

Ashland Coffee & Tea

100 North Railroad Avenue, Ashland, VA

This awesome intimate venue has been the backdrop of some great shows for the Dogs over the past couple of years. Lawrence Gray, a native of Richmond and a high school friend of Bobby's, has been a part of most of them! Lawrence fronted the band Smokin' Phones and then Mary on the Dash out of UNC-Chapel Hill, only to put his guitar down for the business world for 20-odd years. He's been woodshedding and even writing new tunes of late, so come out and hear Lawrence. BUT this time, we've got more. Bobby's first band ever was in high school with Rick O'Hara, then Spanish teacher and now headmaster at a school in Maryland, on the piano, and Lawrence on guitar and vocals. What did Bobby do...drums! Rick is coming down to sit in and make the opening show, and part of the Blue Dogs show, an official GH&O (Gray, Houck, and O'Hara...get it?) Reunion! The first ever....
