All proceeds go to our partner, MUSC Children's Hospital, both for their campaign to build a new facility (The NEW MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital) as well as for pediatric cancer research.

THIS Friday (9/25) in ATLANTA at Terminal West! 

The ATL...a place we just don't get to as much anymore...but here we come. This time around, another "early" show on a Friday...but hope you'll make the effort, as it will be well worth it, as not only is it at one of the coolest venues in Atlanta, TERMINAL WEST, but also we will be supporting Connor Christian and his band The Southern Gothic (who obliged us with an opening set at the Windjammer on July 3, so we are returning the favor). They are a GREAT country-rock band with nothing but energy and swagger and chops...Blue Dogs fans will love them if they don't already. But GET YOUR TICKETS NOW...this is a hometown show for them, and it will likely sell out. See the link to the right of this post!! Don't forget it's an early show...the Dogs will hit the stage at 8 or 8:15 and play a solid hour set, followed by a big set with TSG. Bring it on Georgia!

Bobby in Augusta...9/18-19! 

First off - we want to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out and saw us at The Music Farm in Columbia last weekend. We had a blast and it was so good to see all of your familiar (and new) faces. 

This weekend Bobby will play a really cool event in Augusta, GA called Border Bash. It's him along with Kevin Kinney of Drivin' & Cryin', The Joe Stevenson Band, and more! Gamecock and Bulldog fans will come together on the Savannah River to celebrate the annual rivalry football game.  2014 will mark the event’s 21st Anniversary that has grown into an evening that includes music, UGA & USC Cheerleaders, School Mascots - Hairy Dawg & Cocky as well as vendors from around the Southeast!

Also, Bobby will be the special guest on Saturday night for the Patrick Blanchard Band at Arts in the Heart, also in downtown Augusta. Set is 7:30-9,. and Bobby hits the stage at 8:15 for a few songs, including some Blue Dogs!

Next Friday (9/25) we'll be kicking things off for our buddies The Southern Gothic in Atlanta at Terminal West! Can't wait to get back to see all of you Atlanta folks...

WHITE SQUIRREL FESTIVAL (Bobby & Hank duo)

Brevard, NC

http://whitesquirrelfestival.com/

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.

FRANCIS MARION INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL @ FMU PERFORMING ARTS CENTER (day)

Florence, SC

NEW LOCATION: FMU Performing Arts Center, Downtown Florence

Preparations for Francis Marion University’s Arts International festival in downtown Florence are underway. The longstanding festival, one of the Pee Dee’s great spring traditions, will bring its regular mix of art, music and food to its new location on April 11. The 38-year-old festival has been held in previous year on FMU’s campus. Activities will now center on FMU’s Performing Arts Center. The festival runs from noon to 6 p.m. There is no admission charge and all the entertainment is free and open to the public. There is a charge for food and craft items that are on sale. The premier event at this year’s festival will be a 2 p.m. performance by the Blue Dogs in the PAC’s amphitheatre. The “Dogs” are an earthy, Southern rock band from South Carolina, and a well-known favorite of Pee Dee music fans. FMU’s Music Industry Ensemble and the Celtic rock band Stirling Bridge are also slated to perform in the PAC amphitheatre. The FMU String Ensemble, Vocal Edition, pianist Paolo Gualdi, violinist Terris Roberts and pianist Sumire Worman are all scheduled to perform in the PAC Black Box. Other scheduled acts include the Jabali African Acrobats, the Chief Kamu Fire and Hula Show and the Chinese Acrobats. They will offer festivalgoers a unique perspective on arts from around the world on the festival’s International Stage. A variety of strolling musicians and performers will patrol the festival area, providing impromptu entertainment throughout the day. Other events will include Florence-Darlington Technical College’s famous welding sculpture competition. The competition will feature teams of experienced craftsmen who will create breathtaking pieces of art on the fly, using a pile of scrap material brought in for the occasion. Also on tap: an arts and crafts fair featuring the work of local and regional artisans, children’s activities, art displays in the Florence County Museum and Waters Building Annex, and an international food court. The City of Florence is joining FMU as a major festival participant for this year’s events. Other sponsors include FDTC; St. John’s Episcopal Church, which is providing space for festival parking and events; Honda of SC; Nan Ya Plastics; Florence County; Pepsi Cola of Florence; and the Florence Convention and Visitors Bureau. The festival is the union of two former festivals, Art’s Alive and the Pee Dee International Festival. Its roots date back to 1977.
