Rock Fore! Dough

6a00e55007daf08834010537233f55970b-320wi1On Tuesday April 7, 2009   I went to the 5th annual Rock Fore! Dough concert in Augusta, Georgia. This charity concert was first started in 2004 to help raise money for the First Tee of Augusta’s program that teaches children how to play golf. The concert is always played on the Tuesday of Master’s week. The biggest supporter of this concert that helped start it is the band Hootie and the Blowfish. They have played in this concert 4 of the 5 years and has helped First Tee of Augusta raise over $330,000. Other artists that have participated in this concert are: Collective Soul, Dashboard Confessional, Colbie Caillat, Cheap Trick, Better Than Ezra, Emerson Hart, Corey Smith, and many of Augusta’s own local bands.

This year the lineup included: 48volt, Shawn Mullins, Zac Brown Band, and Hootie and the Blowfish. One of the highlights from this show was when golf legend John Daley joined Hootie on stage and played Knocking on Heaven’s Door” by Bob Dylan. This is one of my favorite concerts of all time because its so fun and it’s almost like a festival. The gates open at 4 in the afternoon and its held on a golf course. There are all sorts of games and blow up slides for kids to enjoy. Many Augusta restaurant’s sponsor the event and set up food tents. I have been to this concert all 5 years and I’ve had some really great times with my friends. I can’t wait to see who will play in next year’s show!

  1. Wow! That sounds like an awesome concert! Hootie and the Blowfish are my all-time favorite band. Do you like Darius Rucker’s new solo career as a country music star?
