With the rich, bluesy vocals of Darius Rucker and gleeful harmonies of guitarist Mark Bryan, bassist Dean Felber and drummer Jim "Soni" Sonefeld, Hootie & the Blowfish, sold over 25 million records world wide after their infectious melodies hit the airwaves in 1994 with hits such as "Hold My Hand", "Let Her Cry" and "Only Wanna Be With You."
About the Howegrown Concert Series:
The basic idea of the Homegrown Concert is on the night of the concert, ticket holders are asked to bring any school supply item to the venue with them, as a donation, and following the concert the supplies will be distributed to the Local School District.
The Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation was founded as a private non-profit organization, The Foundation was originally created in 2000 to benefit children of South Carolina through education and supporting school music programs-since it has spread to a nationwide campaign.
In 2003 the band members established an annual concert in their
hometown, Charleston, SC, as a way to help raise awareness to the needs
of local school children in the community. Every year many schools are
forced to receive budget cuts that ultimately in one-way or another
affects the quality of education each child receives. The night of the
concert, ticket holders were asked to bring school supplies of any kind
to the concert held at Family Circle Magazine Stadium. The response was
overwhelming, and the Charleston County School District children were
the beneficiaries of a generous community effort. A 55-seat school bus
was filled from top to bottom with school supplies and following the
concert those supplies were distributed to the schools and teachers who
were in most need.
Knowing the positive effect this project had on kids and the community, the band wanted to expand the concert into other markets. In 2006, the band took the Homegrown Tour to a nationally level, expanding the tour to 12 dates, and on to13 more in 2007. To date, the band and their loyal fans have helped fill 30 busloads, totally around $150,000 worth of much needed school supplies for children.
