$25 ADV/$35 DOS, Showtime 7PM – Doors 6 PM, Silent Auction begins at 6 PM

Advance Tickets (No service fee if purchased at Terminal West box office)

TDawg Presents is excited to announce the final pieces to the puzzle that is the official bigdaddylineup for this year’s extravaganza. Please welcome back to the mix our favorite troubadour and multi-Grammy winning songwriter Jim Lauderdale, Col. Bruce protégé Evan Sarver (bass), Donna Hopkins, and long-time friend and first-time Holiday Hoot participant Steve “Big Daddy” McMurry from Acoustic Syndicate! Y’all this show will expound the vast reach of Col. Bruce, from his amazing ability to select the young masters to bringing together an array of musicians conforming to one cohesive unit that blows your mind. This attitude and energy transcended not only the jamband scene but also the progressive/new grass genre, and you will witness the wheels in motion.

TDawg Presents is also excited to begin a partnership on the Holiday Hootenanny with the inside-out-logofast rising and critically acclaimed podcast duo of Inside Out w/ Turner & Seth (WTNS). Rob Turner and Seth Weiner have been around the music industry for about as long (if not longer!) than I have, and their perspective combines the fan with a industry insider for the perfect concoction. They will be interviewing some of the Holiday Hootenanny artists for future release. The current podcast features Leftover Salmon’s Vince Herman. Please visit their website for a complete list of their podcasts.

We’re going to have an incredible time this year, the energy coming from the confines of Terminal West is liable to blow the roof off the place! What we’ll need from YOU is to come to the show! There will be some great auction items, too, with proceeds to benefit Atlanta Habitat for Humanity! PLEASE SHARE with you friends.

Meanwhile, enjoy this gem from last year’s Holiday Hoot featuring Papa Mali with Col. Bruce singing “Turn On Your Lovelight” – Zambi! #holidayhootenanny

TDawg Presents Oct/Nov/Holiday Hoot!

6 Oct

Well, that Hootenanny sure was fun wasn’t it!?  Funny how Hoots occur, without fail, exactly when you really need that energy the most.  I know that I’m certainly still feeling the fresh grooves that WE created at the Hootenanny!  The Hootenanny movement is unique in that it combines that festivaaal vibe with the feeling that you’re at an exclusive private party, and it works for everyone involved.  HOOOOOTENANNY!!!

Before you know it, we’re gonna be having the holiday office party of the year in the form of The 4th Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny on Sunday, December 21 at Terminal West!  Once again, and hopefully for many years to come, the concert is a Benefit for Atlanta Habitat for Humanity and there will be a silent auction taking place before and during the event.

Stay tuned for complete details, including advance ticket info.  Initial lineup to be announced soon, with some familiar faces and some fresh ones interspersed amongst to make this Holiday Hoot the finest yet!

Here’s how last year’s ended, just like they’ve all ended yet different.  Can’t wait y’all!

Rev. Jeff Mosier to open for The Duhks, May 1!

16 Apr

Rev solo

TDawg Presents is excited to bring the iconic Rev. Jeff Mosier into the mix on Thursday May 1 at the Red Light Cafe!  He will be doing a special opening set before The Duhks beginning shortly after 8pm.  You never know what might happen later!  This is going to be a special night, so get your tickets NOW to ensure your spot at the show!

Mosier has been shifting focus to outside interests and his desire to work as a solo artist.  You might even get a story out of him as part of the set!  The former DJ for WRFG 89.3 in ATL (late ’80’s, he used to pick banjo over the phone with callers picking on the other end!) is a very entertaining and inspiring musician.  His many associations over the years include frontman for Blueground Undergrass and The Mosier Brothers Band, a local legendary bluegrass band Good Medicine (performed a gospel set with Vassar Clements at HarvestFest 2000!), and he is credited with teaching the fellas of Phish the art of bluegrass.  All of these lineups included his brother and guitar extraordinaire Johnny Mosier.

Below is a fun clip from a show in 2010 from The Melting Point in Athens, GA featuring The Mosier Brothers w/ special guests Curtis Jones, David Blackmon & Randy Judy.  Enjoy!

 

Hope to see y’all at the Red Light Cafe!
