Doug Blumer and the Bohemian Highway
Doug Blumer and the Bohemian Highway, 2014.
Sweet as a springtime breeze through the apple blossoms of West County, this lounge-country confection features the 80-grit croon of bandleader Blumer, backed by honky-tonk angel harmonies from music- and life-partner Nancy Blumer and drummer Jane Fossgreen. Completing the romantic double-double is Jane's own partner Kent Fossgreen on bass. Featuring the first recorded version of the Hoedown's theme song, "The Party's At Our House Again."
Particular favorites: The New Birthday Song, Dreaming of Spring.

As the date shows, it took awhile for us to recover. The Hoedown was a beautiful thing, full of joy and love. We are so grateful to the artists and volunteers - they're listed by name on the right - and thanks to everyone who came and brought their good vibes.
If you have pics or videos, let us know and we'll make sure to get them up on the site or the Facebook page.

There's a decent chance we could fill up, so if you want to make sure you've got a place, we recommend buying tickets in advance at here. We stop selling advance tickets at 11am - if you haven't got yours by then, we recommend arriving before 2pm to ensure a spot.

Let's hear it for:
When we heard Doug Blumer play "The Party's At Our House Again" on that makeshift stage at the first Dog Days Fest, we decided then and there to adopt it as our official anthem. Here's Doug playing it at the 2010 Fest.
