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

WHITE SQUIRREL FESTIVAL (Bobby & Hank duo)

Brevard, NC

About the White Squirrel Festival

Some people won’t believe it when you tell them white squirrels exist. We weren’t so sure ourselves until we saw our first one. A relative of the gray Eastern tree squirrel, white squirrels are thriving in Brevard, NC accounting for an all-time high of 40% of the Eastern tree squirrel population. This particular species of squirrel made its way to Brevard in 1949 as a result of a carnival wreck in central Florida and the town is gearing up for their 10th annual celebration of this unique wildlife population.

This nutty Memorial Day Weekend festival has a little bit for everyone. The 2014 festival kicks off Friday night with Love Canon followed by George Porter, Jr. and the Runnin’ Pardners in a free concert Throughout the weekend, bands like Scythian, the Jeff Sipe Trio, Shannon Whitworth, and many others are performing live and for FREE.

The family fun continues with a memorial parade organized by the American Legion on Saturday morning at 9 a.m., followed by a Presentation of the Wreath at the county courthouse War Memorial at 10 a.m.

Thrill-seekers will enjoy the 8th Annual Squirrel Box Derby in which creatively-designed derby karts race down Jailhouse Hill clocking in at 35mph or more. Races are open to kids 8-11 and 12-17, adults and businesses. Contestants compete for trophies awarded for the fastest critter and nuttiest design and the Golden Nut which is awarded to the local business with the best overall speed and design.

For those who are still skeptics, attendees will have a chance to meet Pisgah Pete, a rescued white squirrel, who will make his annual appearance at the festival. In addition, festival goers can learn more about how white squirrels live and what we can do to help rehabilitate wounded or rescued squirrels.

Additional events include the 6th Annual White Squirrel 5K/10K foot race, the White Squirrel Photo Contest, the White Squirrel Dance-off and street festival. This Memorial Day Weekend, there will be plenty of nutty fun for everyone in Brevard.
