Hootie & the Blowfish Homegrown Weekend

The 11th annual Hootie & the Blowfish Homegrown Weekend in Charleston, SC will kick off Friday, August 23rd and carry on through Saturday.

This weekend will benefit the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation, a private nonprofit organization that regularly donates money to music programs at South Carolina schools.

Each year the weekend takes the band back to their days as classmates at the University of South Carolina. There they made rounds at the bars and finally busted out of the Columbia music scene with Grammy Award-winning debut album, "Cracked Rear View" which sold more than 16 million copies.
