Thanks to our fans who either showed up, inquired, or made an effort to show for the Pecan Festival in Florence SC this Saturday. As most of you know, a crazy cold front and rain/wind storm came through Friday and Saturday and pretty much canceled the entire festival. No bands ended up performing at all due to the weather. We are always very disappointed when a show doesn't work out. BUT the good news is...for Florence area folks....the Blue Dogs will be playing a show on Thanksgiving eve, but at the new, happening T'giving eve location of downtown Flotown, just outside of Victor's Bistro, on an outdoor stage at the corner of Dargan and Evans streets! More details will be posted on our tour dates page, but the show is scheduled to start at 6pm, with the Dogs playing one set from 8-10pm!

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.

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.

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!
