Dearest Dog People,
First of all, THANK YOU for being one of the nearly 2500 folks who joined us for our two 26th Anniversary shows last December and our 25th Anniversary show in December 2013. Without you, there is no show, no band, no Blue Dogs! And because of you, we literally have had some of the greatest nights of our lives as musicians. It means so much to us to have a full house of friends, fans, and family, and then to have all these musicians and friends come out and spend the evening with us—it has been incredible.
When we planned our 25th anniversary show in 2013, we realized that we had found the ANNUAL EVENT we had 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.
You helped make that dream come true.
In an effort to solidify this event as an annual affair, and turn it into a charitable event, we partnered last year with MUSC’s Children’s Hospital, which will be the beneficiary of all proceeds beyond expenses. Our friends at TITO’S Handmade Vodka came on board to help in the effort.
SO: our 3rd Annual HOMECOMING Show this year will take place at the Charleston Music Hall on Sunday, December 27, 2015. We will only be performing ONE NIGHT this year, so make sure to get your tickets early! We have a LIMITED TIME offer for everyone who attended shows the past two years—starting TUESDAY JULY 7, you have first access to tickets, but only until THURSDAY JULY 9, when they go on sale to Charleston Music Hall patrons, and then to the public on FRIDAY JULY 10. We are working on plans for this year which we will share with you very soon, but rest assured you’ll get plenty of Blue Dogs and as many special guests and special moments as we can bring onto the stage this year. More VIP tickets are available this year—they include premium seating, a pre-show reception, a show poster and a commemorative laminate.
Over the past two years some of our oldest musical friends, including Edwin McCain, Darius Rucker, Hootie and the Blowfish, Radney Foster, Doug Jones, Danielle Howle, Pat McGee, Wallace Mullinax, Bryson Jennings, Sadler Vaden and a host of other talented musicians from SC have joined us on stage, so watch out for announcements about special guests that will join us for our third annual homecoming event.
We’ll do it all again this December. We look forward to sharing another special time with you and your friends and families!
Have a great rest of the summer, and we’ll see you soon.

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.
