Where: The Red Light Cafe
Time: Doors 8pm, Showtime 9pm
Admission: $10 adv/$12 door

Come on out Thursday night for a rockin’ evening of Southern-flavored funk n’ soul y’all! I have to say that Secondhand Swagger is one of my favorite new bands in the Atlanta area, and they are sure to bring the house down! Led by frontwoman Abby Wren, this group is gonna bring IT and will have you gettin’ down!

Their counterparts, Major & The Monbacks, are from Norfolk, VA, and are widely recognized as one of the top old-school style soul bands in the region. This is their first time in the ATL so come on out and see for yourselves why there is such a stir about them up around the Virginia Beach area! You’re gonna be hearing some mighty fine horns this night. Awwwwww yeah!

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!

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!

Chattanooga’s own Strung Like A Horse has been tearing it up for several years now, and TDawg Presents is excited to have them as a staple of TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny!  Their unique brand of music, which they affectionately describe as Gypsy-Punk-Garage-Grass, will have you boogeyin’ late into the night!  Check’em out below in a clip from Music City Roots.

TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny Just One Month Out! Sept 19-20!

20 Aug

2014 Fall Hoot poster (web)

We are just ONE MONTH out from what promises to be one of the finest parties of the fall season in TDawg’s Back Porch Hootenanny! It’s not often that one of the musicians involved (Jared Womack) just won the dobro competition at the nationally renown RockyGrass Bluegrass Festival in Lyons, CO.  It’s not often that the caliber of musicians present all weekend long are so stellar, full of amazing energy from various musical styles including blues, bluegrass, jazz, Americana, Southern rock, and singer-songwriter!  The cross-pollination of musicians is going to be at an extremely high level, so be ready for the unexpected!

**Please consider purchasing your ADVANCE TICKETS NOW to help forward the cause, especially if you know you’re going.  Don’t be bashful – share this event with your friends and family.  They’ll have as much  fun as YOU will!

If camping isn’t your thing necessarily, there are two hotels down the road about two miles that are easy to get to.  Please go to the event page for that and other information including the schedule and links to each artist!

While I don’t anticipate  the legendary Johnny Knapp making the journey to Cherokee Farms to play with Col. Bruce Hampton & The Madrid Express, I can’t resist putting this video on here from the Red Light Cafe in December the night before the Holiday Hootenanny.  A nice Zambi moment for your afternoon.  HOOOOOOOOOOTENANNY!!!
