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!!

All American Block Party

Dogs perform at 3pm! Join us for an old fashioned, All-American Block Party on September 10th from noon to 5 p.m. at Buckwalter Place, near the intersection of Buckwalter Parkway and Bluffton Parkway in Bluffton, SC.  The Bluffton Block Party has a simple mission - for all of us to celebrate American pride and spirit and to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9-11.  The whole neighborhood is invited to thank our military men and women as well as police, firefighters, EMS and others who protect our liberty and to celebrate the freedom and privileges their sacrifices guarantee.

This event will benefit Operation R&R, a program which brings military families to the Hilton Head/ Bluffton area for a virtually free vacation to help them “reconnect” with their spouse and kids after long periods away due to multiple deployments.

$5.00, Kids under 5 yrs are free Also, Military & Dependents Free.

2011 Sooie't Relief BBQ Benefit

Downtown, Greer, SC

 This is a FIRST-ANNUAL BBQ Cookoff event which received an affiliation from Kansas City BBQ, which means BBQ cookers from all over will be coming in to compete. And rain or shine, there are a plethora of activities going on around the cookoff, including lots of food and beverages, a KIDS FUN area, and of course a stage where there will be music playing from 1pm-10pm! The Dogs' acoustic trio will be performing at 7pm for a 75 minute set, but expect lots of interaction and jamming all afternoon...since we helped the organizer book all the acts! Abby Anne Cazel kicks off at 1, then Spencer Rush at 2pm, Taylor Moore solo at 3:15, bluegrass with The Bent Strings at 4:30, Doug Jones of Cravin' Melon and his family band at 5:45, the Dogs acoustic trio at 7, then the young and talented Midway Blue from Florence SC closing the show from 8:30-10, full band style!

The White Mule-Acoustic Trio

 —  —

1530 Main Street , Columbia, SC

This has been a standing room only show every time we've played it. It's great fun, and a different kind of show....the first set especially is intimate and quiet and you're truly hearing the band in an "unplugged" format. We suggest you come as early as you can to try and grab some of the few tables where you can sit, have drinks, and have a great dinner....their food is awesome, particularly the homemade pizzas! Come join Hank, David, and Bobby for a great night of music. Get your advance tickets by clicking here!
