4th Annual Charleston Music Hall Show & Benefit TICKETS ON SALE NOW! Starting 6/30/16! 

It's already that time again....for tickets to go on sale for our annual event we started back in 2013 with our 25th Anniversary....With the 2014 show, we brought in MUSC's Children's Hospital as a charity partner, and we have run our yearly "homecoming celebration" as a benefit for what is now the SHAWN JENKINS MUSC CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL CAMPAIGN....and also for pediatric cancer research--and as such, we'll be announcing our association with the PRESS ON FOUNDATION later this summer.

Our 4th Annual Homecoming and 28TH ANNIVERSARY Benefit will take place WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 28 AT THE CHARLESTON MUSIC HALL. Special guests will be announced beginning this summer and throughout the Fall.

AND the important thing for now is....the best tickets are going on sale this week! And as we have in years past, there is a VIP experience that can be purchased for this show as well, including a preview night on Tuesday, December 27, at the Music Farm in Charleston.

Exclusive Presale for Charlotte BD Fans: Advance Tix for Double Door 6/25/16 Until This Friday! 

So...the Blue Dogs played their first club show in Charlotte back in 1989 at a little place called The Double Door Inn, one of the coolest rock and blues clubs anywhere. Written about by Neil Young ("Bite the Bullet") and a post-concert hang for Eric Clapton in 1982....the venue has been home to some of the greatest bands alive. Even before the recent news that the venue and surrounding businesses may be taken over by nearby CPCC, the Blue Dogs were talking about going back in there for a summer show.....and so it is!

And we are giving you a chance to get your tickets now and secure your spot (venue only holds about 200 max, so we are sure to sell out). This is an exclusive presale offer and it is happening NOW, from TUESDAY, APRIL 5 until FRIDAY MORNING APRIL 8 AT 10AM, at which time tickets go on sale to the public.

SO GET THEM NOW! Here's how:

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....
