About Hootie & the Blowfish
The quartet met when they were freshman at the University of South Carolina in Columbia. Mark Bryan heard Darius Rucker singing in the showers of the dorm they shared and was impressed by his vocal ability. Bryan and Rucker began playing cover tunes as The Wolf Brothers; eventually Bryan and Rucker hooked up with Felber, a former high school band mate of Bryan's, and Jim "Soni" Sonefeld as Hootie & The Blowfish. (The unlikely moniker was borrowed from the nicknames of two college friends.) By the time they graduated, endless gigs at frat parties and local bars had built a major local buzz. "We'd started adding original material to our repertoire," Bryan recalled. "Our songs went over well, so we decided to see if we could make a career out of it. Even if we hadn't had a hit, I know we'd still be making music today, because it's exactly what we want to be doing." In the next five years Hootie & The Blowfish worked their way up the food chain from local draw to gigs all over the Carolinas and finally, the entire East Coast. Their blend of pop, folk, blues, soul and rock made them hard to pigeonhole, but easily accessible to anyone who loved good music. Atlantic Records, impressed by their regional draw, signed them and released Cracked Rear View in 1994. The album had been out for six months before the band played on the Late Show with David Letterman. Letterman told his audience "If you don't have this album, there's something wrong with you." The day after the show aired, sales went from four or five thousand a week to 17,000 a week, and eventually Number One on the Billboard charts the following spring. It remains a strong seller today. "It became dream-like," Rucker recalled. "I'd wished for it, but I'm not sure I believed it, even as it was happening. We were on tour constantly; the whole thing is still kind of a blur." At the end of the year, Cracked Rear View and the band won two Grammy's - Best New Artist and Song of the Year by duo or group for "Let Her Cry." They also took home an MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist for "Hold My Hand," a Billboard Music Award for album of the year, a People's Choice Award for Album of the Year and a People's Choice Award for Best Selling Artist, a feat they duplicated in 1996. The band kept touring, remaining a top draw nationwide and released five more albums for Atlantic: Fairweather Johnson, (three million); Musical Chairs, (one million); Scattered, Smothered & Covered; Hootie & The Blowfish and The Best of Hootie & The Blowfish as well as a solo album by Mark Bryan 30 on the Rail. Rucker has also released a solo effort, Back To Then on the Hidden Beach label. The band left Atlantic by mutual agreement in 2004; Looking For Lucky released in 2005 was their first album on their own Sneaky Long Records, manufactured and distributed by Vanguard. LIVE in Charleston, The Homegrown Concert Event DVD and CD was released in August of 2006. Hootie & the Blowfish wrapped a summer of touring in 2007 and members entered the studio to record solo albums. Mark Bryan released END OF THE FRONT in Spring of 2008, Jim Sonefeld is currently recording his first solo effort for release later this year and Darius Rucker is working on a country album to be released on Capitol Records Spring 2008. Hootie & the Blowfish will hit the road again this summer in support of their Homegrown Tour, where they ask all their audience members to bring school supplies with them as a donation to the show. All supplies collected are then donated to the local schools in the most need.

This was an excellent concert from start to finish. BNL rocked and was better than expected. I hadn’t seen them since they downsized but they didn’t miss a beat. Hootie came out and rocked... so good!!!

Awesome show! The Barenaked Ladies were a great opener and seeing Hootie and the Blowfish back together again was more than I could have wished for. It was like they never took the break.

Great show! Wish it was more of the classics but still great. Bare naked ladies were amazing by themselves. Both did some awesome covers of timeless rock classics as well.

Music was incredible. So glad to see these guys back together. Only downside was the venue did not handle the entrance well and the food and drinks were grossly overpriced.
