5th Annual Homecoming & 29th Anniversary & Benefit for Pediatric Cancer, 12/29/17! 

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. Our friends THE PRESS ON FUND join us for the second year and will be MATCHING EVERY DOLLAR that we raise this year. Join us as a sponsor and let's eclipse the over $130,000 we raised last year!!

TICKETS for the show are still humming along, but THIS is the TIME that general availability begins to thin out, particularly as new sponsors come on board. Know your holiday plans? If so, and you plan to attend, it would be a good idea to GET YOUR TICKETS TODAY for the best available.

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....

Doors 7pm
Lawrence 8-8:25
