OCTOBER is going fast, and we are in the thick of bringing in our SPONSORS for this year's event....Sponsor packages available range from $500-$5000, and each level includes VIP tickets for the show on the 29th, the pre-show reception earlier that evening, AND the "Super Goo Jam" on 12/28 at the Music Farm! A huge amount of fun for two nights, and all proceeds will go directly to pediatric oncology research being done at the new MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital by Dr. Jacqueline Kraveka and her team.

The One Stop at Asheville Music Hall (SoConf B-Ball Championships)
Hey Folks (and Especially Davidson Folks and SoCon fans in general),
We're gonna do a special show up in the 'Ville on the Sunday of the SoConf B-Ball Championships.
Show is 5-8pm in the "One Stop Deli" located in the Asheville Music Hall, just a few steps from the UNC-A basketball arena.
Happy hour will be in full force, and there's great food for the whole family. Check out the menu and other info at www.ashevillemusichall.com.
A great venue that we try to play a couple of times a year. They are celebrating the the 10th anniversary of Sylvia's reopening!!
Bobby and Hank with special guest Daren Shumaker. "Bluedogs Bluegrass!"
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....
