Pecan Festival Rained Out...but another Florence show on 11/26! 

Thanks to our fans who either showed up, inquired, or made an effort to show for the Pecan Festival in Florence SC this Saturday. As most of you know, a crazy cold front and rain/wind storm came through Friday and Saturday and pretty much canceled the entire festival. No bands ended up performing at all due to the weather. We are always very disappointed when a show doesn't work out. BUT the good news is...for Florence area folks....the Blue Dogs will be playing a show on Thanksgiving eve, but at the new, happening T'giving eve location of downtown Flotown, just outside of Victor's Bistro, on an outdoor stage at the corner of Dargan and Evans streets! More details will be posted on our tour dates page, but the show is scheduled to start at 6pm, with the Dogs playing one set from 8-10pm!

11th Annual Pecan Festival in Florence  


After a fun night of tricks and treats come out tomorrow for fine wine and dine at the Pecan Festival in Florence, SC tomorrow. It is fun for all ages and the Blue Dogs will be appearing on stage at 3:30PM! Follow this LINK for more information and we hope to see you there!
 

26 Years. 26 Hours. 2 Shows (& a brunch) 

Dearest Dog People,

Many of you know that last December we had our 25th Anniversary show at the Charleston Music Hall in Charleston, SC with friends and special guests from Darius Rucker, Edwin McCain, Radney Foster, and many others. It was truly a night to remember. We had one of the greatest nights of our lives as musicians. It meant so much to us to have a full house, and then to have all these musicians and friends come out and spend the evening with us…it was incredible.

That very night, we decided that we had found the ANNUAL EVENT we have been searching for our whole career. We have always wanted to host a musical happening in Charleston that would be an annual homecoming of sorts…one that would allow us to hang out with other musicians and our families and friends and make some kind of special noise together.  Last year, 1,000 of our biggest fans helped make that come true.

So we are going to turn a milestone into a new beginning…our annual HOMECOMING show…except that this year Hank and I wanted to make it bigger, better, and give the event more meaning by having the opportunity to give back to a charity that is near and dear to our hearts. 

So this year we'll be taking over the Charleston Music Hall for two special nights - December 27-28, 2014 to celebrate

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....
