1/5/14 - For the third consecutive year, Doc Hodges brought in the new year at King Street Blues in Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia. Backed by local music legends Gary Cole and Vince Calcaterra, and trading the stage with the King Street Bluegrass band, the fun and entertaining night proved to be the perfect ending to a productive 2013 and a sign for the coming year.
Kicking off with "Folsom Prison Blues", Doc began the set with a classic Cash song that got the crowd involved early. Many who heard that first song stayed until the end of the night, enjoying classic country hits and bluegrass standards. "The best New Year's Eve ever at KSB" was echoed through sentiments from customers and staff alike.
Doc is looking forward to continuing to play with the EPs into the new year and develop his performance of original songs and old standards. Look for more to come from this dynamic entertainer.
12/26/2012 - After a successful year of entertaining the rip-roarin' crowds of Old Town staple, King Street Blues, in Alexandria, Virginia - Doc is bringing on some "EP's". These "Extended Players" will be featured in shows throughout 2013, as Doc mixes up the line-up and brings some local talent in to add depth to his already lively set. Steve Losey, local guitar and banjo picker, will be featured along with others as the new year and music season take-off. Most Saturdays, Doc can be found tearing it up down at KSB, and anyone in the local scene or just passing-by should stop in and see what the commotion is all about. Doc's CD "Autumn in July" is always available during the show for just $5, and there's never a cover charge. Always free and always fun, bring your friends, and let's get country.
