Home Team BBQ will host three special music shows on top of their normal entertainment schedule to close out the summer. These include:

July 30 (Downtown) Col. Bruce Hampton & Madrid Express: In the late 1960s Colonel Bruce Hampton was a founding member of Atlanta, Georgia’s avant-garde Hampton Grease Band. Adopting the moniker Colonel Bruce Hampton, he retired, sometimes playing a sort of dwarf guitar called a “chazoid”, and later formed several other bands. Some of those band names include The Late Bronze Age, The Aquarium Rescue Unit, The Fiji Mariners, The Codetalkers, The Quark Alliance, Pharaoh Gummitt, Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at

August 13 (Sullivan's Island) Hollis Brown: Since its formation in 2009, the scrappy New York outfit known as Hollis Brown has emerged as one of America’s most compelling young rock ‘n’ roll acts. Drawing from a bottomless well of classic influences yet firmly rooted in the present, the band’s output has steadily evolved from the raw immediacy of its early releases to the more expansive, adventurous approach that fuels its bracing new album 3 Shots. In addition to showcasing the deeply expressive songwriting of Hollis Brown’s founding duo of singer/guitarist Mike Montali and guitarist Jonathan Bonilla, 3 Shots benefits from the road-tested rapport of the quintet, which also includes longtime bassist/vocalist Dillon DeVito and more recent additions Andrew Zehnal (drums) and Adam Bock (piano and vocals). Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at

August 17 (Downtown) Chapter:SOUL: Chapter:SOUL is New Orleans’ newest funk innovation. The band features the collaboration of saxophonist Calvin Johnson and legendary sousaphonist Kirk Joseph, with Kashonda Bailey on keys. The band adds a fresh and powerful sound to the world of funk and soul, blending old-school horn licks with modern sounds over tight beats for a verifiable crowd favorite. Chapter:SOUL is currently tracking its debut album, and plans for a release later in 2016. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at http://www.citypapertickets.com/events/35047262/chaptersoul

“Beat the Winter Blues” at Home Team BBQ Throughout February

February 16, 2016

Posted in Events, Food, Music

Share Post

Home Team BBQ is providing the perfect cure to “Beat the Winter Blues” throughout the month of February—with performances by amazing top blues musicians. The month celebration hits a crescendo on Saturday, February 27 at the annual All-star Blues Jam & Oyster Roast at West Ashley. Most shows start at 10:00pm and there is a $5 cover at the door. Patrons can come and hear some great live music at the various locations with the schedule as follows:

Sullivan’s Island

February 5:                    Cedric Burnside: Born and raised around Holly Springs, Mississippi, Cedric Burnside, grandson of legendary R.L. Burnside and son of drummer Calvin Jackson, has been playing music all his life. He has developed a relentless, highly rhythmic charged style with strong hip-hop and funk influences. This four-time winner of the prestigious Blues Music Award’s Drummer of the Year (2010-2014) is widely regarded as one of the best drummers in the world. http://cedricburnside.com/

February 6:                    Eric Culberson: Bandleader Eric Culberson has been playing music virtually all his life. Growing up in a family of musicians, he was drawn to his father’s acoustic guitar at the age of six—and before he’d even finished First Grade, had discovered a love for public performance: at a holiday party he entertained his classmates with a rendition of the Christmas classic “Silent Night,” and has never looked back. With guidance from friends and family, Culberson traced the artistic roots of his rock and roll heroes, and found himself immersed in the recordings and histories of such fabled guitar-slinging bluesmen as Son Seals, Otis Rush, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters and—perhaps most notably—the three Kings: B.B., Albert and Freddy.

February 13:                  Liz Brasher: Liz Brasher is an Atlanta, GA based singer-songwriter who embodies the spirit and soul of the American South in her music. Born and raised in Charlotte, NC she was rooted from an early age in the fiber of the musical character that runs through the land. Like so many singers before her in the tradition of soulful Southern music, Liz got her start by singing in the church. Liz moved to Chicago where she began to write her own compositions. She drew on a myriad of sources to refine her characteristic blend of the old and new. Her introduction to the Blues would have a profound impact on her as a composer, singer, and guitar player. Blues paragons such as Son House, Leadbelly, and Muddy Waters can all be heard in her honest and soulful compositions. The influence of 1960’s R&B and Gospel giants Otis Redding, Mavis Staples, and Bill Withers can be found in any number of her performances. She cites Pops Staples’ simple yet powerful guitar playing style as a major source of inspiration on her own work. http://www.lizbrasher.com/

February 19:                  Balkun Brothers: Mixing traditional styles of delta and electric blues, with heavy modern rock and funk grooves, the Balkun Brothers are crafting a unique sound and style all their own. The band is fusing the past with the present and pushing the sonic bounds of blues into the future. Though the band’s sound is deeply rooted in blues tradition, Balkun Brothers draw from a vast range of influences. The band’s live shows and in-studio recordings seamlessly transition between blues, rock, funk, jam, psychedelia and everything in-between. Founding members Steve Balkun (guitar/vocals) and Nick “The Hammer” Balkun (drums/percussion/vocals) are gaining followers across the world with their gritty hard-rockin’ swagger. Balkun Brothers are becoming known for their explosive live shows and are quickly evolving into one of the United States’ premier blues-rock acts. http://balkunmusic.com/

February 20:                  Kaleigh Baker Blues Band: Originally from a small valley in Western New York, Kaleigh Baker has risen to prominence as a jazzy, blues-rock powerhouse. Her chill-inducing growl and ear-shattering range come drenched in Jack Daniel’s swagger: ‘Her vocals dip into a low and resounding molasses-slow croon with as much ease as they ascend to ceiling-skimming heights. Kaleigh Baker’s full length album “Weary Hours” will be officially released in October 2015. http://kaleighbaker.com/ 

February 26:                  Cool John Ferguson: Cool John Ferguson has been active on tent revival circuits, played with LaFace Records of Atlanta, GA, and collaborated with several well-known artists including Taj Mahal, Kenny Wayne Shepard, BB King, the Stylistics, Beverly Guitar Watkins, Captain Luke, and others. He’s been honored by Living Blues Magazine for two consecutive years as “Most Outstanding Guitarist.” He’s kept his feet in the juke joint tradition, playing a whole lot of Saturday nights at All Peoples Grill in north Durham, NC and other clubs in North Carolina, South Carolina, and surrounding states. http://cooljohnferguson.com/

West Ashley

February 27:                  All-star Blues Jam & Oyster Roast: Our annual All-star Blues Jam & Oyster Roast continues with the same core group of musicians as we started. Expect full sets from Tommy Thunderfoot and Skye Paige as well as the invitational jam featuring some of the Lowcountry’s best musicians like Whitt Algar and Jon Picard. All-U-Can-Eat Oysters are back for one day only for $15.

“We are longtime fans of the blues and proud to be committed to showcasing top artists throughout the year,” stated Tony McKie, Music and Entertainment Director. “It is important part of our music program and we look forward to having all of these performers come to the Lowcountry throughout the month of February.

Home Team BBQ Plans Small Expansion at West Ashley Location

January 28, 2016

Posted in Press

Share Post

Home Team BBQ announced plans today for a small expansion at the West Ashley location, 1205 Ashley River Road, sometime in spring 2016. The expansion will take over the adjoining space that was formerly a hair salon. The plans include opening up the connecting wall with a 12 ft. opening to create an additional room to house the official stage area for live entertainment, more seating, and televisions for sporting events. The new room will add an additional 30 seats and a place for a dedicated private dining space. The current dining area will be redesigned to eliminate the stage and add more community and high top tables, similar to what is used at the Sullivan’s Island location. Home Team BBQ will also expand the front and back patios to increase seating in both spaces.

“We have always wanted to have the entire building for our West Ashley location and we are excited to see this opportunity finally come available to us,” said pitmaster and owner Aaron Siegel. “We will now have a dedicated stage and a place for private parties, something we get requests for daily.”

Construction is expected to begin in the coming weeks and should be completed by spring.

Time Sawyer: Time Sawyer is interested in “real people and real songs” and that’s just what the listener finds in their music – a sense of realness. Time Sawyer blends a grassroots feel with heart-felt lyrics to put on a high-energy, entertaining show. Lead vocalist Sam Tayloe and lead guitarist Kurt Layell recorded an acoustic EP together in 2010, but the addition in 2011 of Houston Norris, on banjo, and Clay Stirewalt, on drums, allowed them to create a richer sound at their live performances and on their albums. http://www.timesawyer.com/

Under the Willow: Under The Willow is a string band featuring the lead vocals of Erin Donovan and Hayley Skreens. An original four piece rooted in but not limited to traditional bluegrass instrumentation. Using socially conscious and thought provoking lyrics the band forges imaginatively original arrangements blending the sounds of Folk, Bluegrass, Newgrass, Jam Band, Rock, Reggae, Americana, with a twist of soul. https://www.reverbnation.com/underthewillow

The group also experimented sonically, adding textures from a variety of influences, including jazz and psychedelic jam/rock. After sharing a glimpse of their explosive, evolving live sound on their 2014 release Live at The Five Spot, Frazier Band got back to work in their home base of Nashville, vibing with engineer Daniel Rice (Cadillac Sky) to create a follow-up studio album reflecting a solid ensemble sound that Frazier could have only dreamed of when he launched Frazier Band in 2010.

Home Team BBQ and Swig & Swine will be joining efforts on a “smoked” menu including brisket, beef ribs, and sides, and Coast Brewery will be serving beer.

The self-taught guitarist has written hundreds of songs and recorded dozens of albums spanning the genres of country, blues, folk, gospel and shag.

Home Team BBQ is proud to be a part of Hogs for the Cause Charleston's first annual music and food event in Charleston. The Charleston Hogs fundraiser will take place on Saturday, October 4, 2014 at The Grove at Patriots Point; gates open at 11AM. “We are excited to bring Hogs for the Cause to Charleston, a place that is near and dear to me,” states Becker Hall, University of South Carolina graduate and Co-Founder and Executive Director of Hogs for the Cause. “Our line up of bands is second to none and we’ve secured the finest pitmasters in the South to entertain attendees for the whole day.”

The music lineup featured on the Cathead Vodka Stage includes popular Southern rock band Drive-By Truckers, Austin-based rock ‘n’ roll group Heartless Bastards, Soul Rebels Brass Band hailing from New Orleans, bluegrass newcomer Whiskey Shivers, and Charleston’s own Sol Driven Train and Dead 27s. While the bands keep the stage hot, it’s the pitmasters that add spice to the day. Rodney Scott (Scott’s Bar-B-Que, Hemingway, SC), Jimmy Hagood (Food for the Southern Soul), John Haire (Nick’s BBQ), Conyers Family BBQ (Manning, SC), Aaron Siegel (Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ), Mark Behr (Sweatman’s BBQ, Holly Hill, SC), and Lynn and Norton Hughes (Shuler’s Bar-B-Que, Latta, SC) will serve up the South’s best barbeque for a cause.

Tickets for the event are on sale now at www.hogscharleston.org. The early bird “Hog” general admission tickets, available in limited supply, are $30 each. Pork samples are an additional $7 per portion. The “PassPork” (think of it as a prepaid Visa--pun intended) is $75, which includes admission, a sample dish from all eight vendors, and access to the PassPork line which gets faster service. The “Local Palate VIP” ticket for $200 gives all of the benefits of the “PassPork” ticket, as well as an open bar with Husk restaurant bartender Rod Weaver crafting cocktails throughout the day, specialty dishes served by a group of visiting chefs, and use of a private restroom. Visiting chefs include New Orleans chefs Justin Devillier (Executive Chef of La Petite Grocery, James Beard Award finalist for Best Chef: South, and Bravo TV Top Chef Contestant Season 11), Aaron Burgau (Executive Chef of Patois), and Ryan Prewitt (executive Chef of Pêche, James Beard Award winner of Best Chef: South, and James Beard Award winner for Best New Restaurant), as well as Sean Brock from Charleston (Executive Chef of Husk, James Beard Award winner of Best Chef: Southeast, and a James Beard Award finalist for Outstanding Chef). A very limited number of  “Local Palate VIP” tickets will be sold on a first come-first served basis.

Hogs for the Cause Charleston is an excellent opportunity for families to come out and have a great time, listen to music and taste some of the best barbeque around,” states Rene Louapre, Hogs for the Cause Co-Founder. “The fact that its for a good cause makes it the best ticket in town.”

Hogs for the Cause is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides aid and relief of those variable expenses and economic burdens which families face while their child is being treated for pediatric brain cancer. Currently, Hogs for the Cause—which has partnered with several hospitals nationally, including MUSC Children’s Hospital—operates as the premier funding source for pediatric brain cancer outreach services in the United States and has given grants to over 200 families in need in just six years.
