Pecan Festival Rained Out...but another Florence show on 11/26! 

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!

11th Annual Pecan Festival in Florence  


After a fun night of tricks and treats come out tomorrow for fine wine and dine at the Pecan Festival in Florence, SC tomorrow. It is fun for all ages and the Blue Dogs will be appearing on stage at 3:30PM! Follow this LINK for more information and we hope to see you there!
 

26 Years. 26 Hours. 2 Shows (& a brunch) 

Dearest Dog People,

Many of you know that last December we had our 25th Anniversary show at the Charleston Music Hall in Charleston, SC with friends and special guests from Darius Rucker, Edwin McCain, Radney Foster, and many others. It was truly a night to remember. We had one of the greatest nights of our lives as musicians. It meant so much to us to have a full house, and then to have all these musicians and friends come out and spend the evening with us…it was incredible.

That very night, we decided that we had found the ANNUAL EVENT we have 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.  Last year, 1,000 of our biggest fans helped make that come true.

So we are going to turn a milestone into a new beginning…our annual HOMECOMING show…except that this year Hank and I wanted to make it bigger, better, and give the event more meaning by having the opportunity to give back to a charity that is near and dear to our hearts. 

So this year we'll be taking over the Charleston Music Hall for two special nights - December 27-28, 2014 to celebrate

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.

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!
