UPDATES

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

Music Farm/Columbia SC Show Rescheduled for FRIDAY NOVEMBER 7! 

Most of you know that our Sept 5 "grand opening" show for the new Music Farm in the Vista in Columbia SC was postponed due to delays in opening the club...well, they finally opened in late September, and our show has been rescheduled for Friday, November 7, and the show will include The Occasional Milkshake (featuring Mark Bryan from Hootie and the Blowfish, along with Cravin Melon/Hootie's Gary Greene and our very own Hank Futch). Unfortunately, our friends the Archetypes could not make the show work out for that date. We will miss them, but look forward to rocking the capitol city on 11/7!

Thanks so much to all our fans who responded on social media, bought or attempted to buy tickets, and/or reserved hotel rooms. We hope you will be able to join us for the new date, and celebrate what we hear is a fantastic new venue in the midlands...and one Columbia has desperately needed for some time!
