The Occasional Milkshake is what happens when Hootie and the Blowfish, The Blue Dogs, and Cravin' Melon all take a break cialis online. Hootie lead guitarist and founding member Mark Bryan, Blue Dogs stand-up bass slapper Hank Futch, and Gary Greene, who plays drums for Cravin' Melon, and percussion for the Blowfish, began jamming together for fun in the early aughts, when their respective bands were on hiatus viagra online.
The Occasional Milkshake's motives are pure - have fun playing music. The guys like to switch instruments and open for themselves . Hank is actually a fine acoustic guitar picker, and he likes to sing old songs while Mark works the mandolin, and Gary sometimes tries his hand at banjo viagra. Once they plug in, it's a rock show, with
originals and covers that fall all over the map; from bluegrass to punkabilly, and anything in between. Laughter is a key ingredient, and there is plenty of it. It's a spontaneous affair, with a loose set list - the way music is supposed to be.
Opening up the show is Craven' Melon lead singer and guitarist Doug Jones and Charleston's own Ed Hunnicutt.
This year's event benefits Darkenss to Light, East Cooper Habitat, Dragon Boat Charleston and Hospice of Charleston.
