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....
