TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny 3 Days Away – Sept 19-20! Artist Preview: Freddy’s Finest & Col. Bruce Hampton

16 Sep

My how time flies!  Here we are the week of the 17th edition of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny y’all!  The temperature will be just right for a big ol’ bonfire, and the music will keep you moving all day and all night!

If you’ve not had a chance yet to catch Col. Bruce Hampton, mark my words you’re in for a special treat.  His shows seem to always fit the moment, never a weak link.  The Zambi master will bring it on Saturday evening, you know that for certain.  Below is a fun clip from last year’s 3rd Annual Atlanta’s Holiday Hootenanny in December (mark your calendars for SUN DEC 21 and the 4th Annual Holiday Hoot!)

Freddy’s Finest has evolved into quite the funk/jazz ensemble that can really tear it up.  A perfect for the 6:30pm set on the Grateful Fred Stage, and an ideal band to directly precede Col. Bruce!  Check out their Lettuce jam from the Moonshadow Tavern not too long ago.  Let’s just say it’s a very involved jam where each participating musician brings it!

Music On Main Street joins Hoot Family!

11 Mar


TDawg Presents is excited to bring Music On Main Street – a musical gem in Lilburn, GA – into the Hootenanny mix!  Not only are they a sponsor for the Grateful Fred Stage, MOMS will lead the 2pm HOOTENANNY JAM!!

My good buddy Scott Mecredy, his wife Alicia, and so many friends, have constructed this establishment from the ground up in a house that dates back to 1895 and converted it into a place for music lessons, an instrument store, and a vital music venue.  Well worth the journey from anywhere in metro-Atlanta and beyond.


Y’all we’re going to have a special time in just a few weeks up at Cherokee Farms!  Bring on the fresh springtime air and evenings just right for a big ol’ bonfire, bring on this time for healing and personal growth, and let’s use it as an opportunity to appreciate what is in front of you, beside you, and inside of you, all the while enjoying some kick-ass music by some of the region’s finest!

Remember, you can save a few bucks and really help the Hoot out by purchasing advance tickets!  Regardless, be sure to show up with your posse of friends and family!  HOOT HOOT!!

Big Week of Shows for TDawg Presents!

30 Sep


Come on out for a special early weeknight show at The Red Light Cafe on Thursday, October 3, with one of the most dynamic bands touring these days in The Ragbirds!  Fresh off having a baby in August, Erin Zindle leads these road warriors back on the road for the first time since that time on the proudly proclaimed “Brave New Baby Tour”.

Brave New Baby Tour

They will be traveling in their new bio-fuel vehicle tailor made for including a new little family member!  I personally am looking forward to welcoming them with open arms and an amazing audience Thursday night!  It’s also my wife’s birthday, and The Ragbirds is one of her favorite bands.  So if you know her, come on out and celebrate with us.  If you don’t know her, come on out and celebrate with us!  Below is a great video of the band performing one of my favorite songs by them, “Brave New Beat”, from Music City Roots.  Enjoy!



On Saturday, October 5, Strung Like A Horse visits Music On Main Street for an evening under the large oaks in a beautiful backyard setting in historic downtown Lilburn, just 20 minutes east of the ATL.  It’s an early show, starting at 7pm, and be ready for two sets of the some of the finest self-proclaimed “gypsy punk garage grass” you’re ever going to see!  Cover is only $10!  These kind folks are on a roll right now, doing good things, and are the top band out of Chattanooga right now.  DO NOT MISS THEM!  Music On Main Street is a very family friendly venue that is BYOB and you can bring your own dinner spread, too.  Be sure to bring a blanket and/or chairs!  Below is a video of their song titled “Gypsy Jane”, some of which was filmed at beautiful Cherokee Farms.
