Blue Dogs

The Blue Dogs continue to tour  and amaze crowds from young and old!
This is a great group of guys who really know how to jam, be it at the rustic beach front club the Windjammer ,where our parents grew up too, or in the crowded streets of a small college town like Athens (that I personally helped convert). The Blue Dogs is the best off shore fishing cd that you will find- the fish enjoy it too and the next thing you know, a 350 lb blue has jumped in the boat to hear Futch strumming away, a little better. Just wish my friends would quit 'borrowing' my cd!
Growing up in the South, I have heard so many great bands who start out small, playing at intimate local venues, and end up in the big time. The Blue Dogs are perhaps the best of the bands I have heard live, but unfortunately they have just not been lucky enough to catch the big break they deserve.
Blue Dogs is an outstanding album with all of the things you would look for in a great record--fun lyrics, guitar skills, great sound, and a passion for entertaining the masses. If you consider yourself a fan of artists who sing because they love to and not to get famous, southern rock, or great albums in general, then you have to pick this one up ASAP!
What fun music! I'd never heard of this band before until I saw them today playing at a streetfest in Chicago. I fell in love with the music after only hearing the last 2 songs they played. I bought the CD on the spot, took it home, and listened to it twice. The lyrics are fairly simple, but it's good old fashioned love story stuff with a bluegrass/pop twist. I can't wait to see them live again!


Blue Dogs

The Blue Dogs continue to tour, primarily on the east coast, but in recent years it has performed throughout the southeast, in Texas, the midwest, and the northeast. Over the years the band has performed on the same stage with such well-known and diverse artists as Willie Nelson, Widespread Panic, Bruce Hornsby, and Little Feat. They have also received national exposure by singing the national anthem at the final Southern 500 NASCAR race in Darlington SC in 2004, and in 2007 performing as the house band on a week’s worth of Wheel of Fortune shows.
