It's already that time again....for tickets to go on sale for our annual event we started back in 2013 with our 25th Anniversary....With the 2014 show, we brought in MUSC's Children's Hospital as a charity partner, and we have run our yearly "homecoming celebration" as a benefit for what is now the SHAWN JENKINS MUSC CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL CAMPAIGN....and also for pediatric cancer research--and as such, we'll be announcing our association with the PRESS ON FOUNDATION later this summer.

Our 4th Annual Homecoming and 28TH ANNIVERSARY Benefit will take place WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 28 AT THE CHARLESTON MUSIC HALL. Special guests will be announced beginning this summer and throughout the Fall.

Exclusive Presale for Charlotte BD Fans: Advance Tix for Double Door 6/25/16 Until This Friday! 

So...the Blue Dogs played their first club show in Charlotte back in 1989 at a little place called The Double Door Inn, one of the coolest rock and blues clubs anywhere. Written about by Neil Young ("Bite the Bullet") and a post-concert hang for Eric Clapton in 1982....the venue has been home to some of the greatest bands alive. Even before the recent news that the venue and surrounding businesses may be taken over by nearby CPCC, the Blue Dogs were talking about going back in there for a summer show.....and so it is!

And we are giving you a chance to get your tickets now and secure your spot (venue only holds about 200 max, so we are sure to sell out). This is an exclusive presale offer and it is happening NOW, from TUESDAY, APRIL 5 until FRIDAY MORNING APRIL 8 AT 10AM, at which time tickets go on sale to the public.

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.
