Hucklebuck, Blue Ribbon Rock N Roll, Puttin' the RIFF in Riff Raff since aught-eight.
This is it...
The year is near its end and we have one last show before our hiatus. This one will be our annual holiday party, this year at Maloo's Pub in Hagerstown, MD, on Robinwood Drive near HCC. The date is December 14th(a Saturday) and this will be our last show before we take an indefinite hiatus. We hope to see lots of friendly faces in attendance!
Attention Fredericktonians and residents of the outlying area! Saturday, November 16th, we will play our last Frederick show before the hiatus at JoJo's Taphouse on 16 East Patrick Street. We hope to throw out some marathon sets pulling from old and new material. We look forward to seeing you there!
Currently, we have one show per month until the end of the year. After that, we will be taking an indefinite hiatus. Hope to see lots of friendly faces at these last shows!
We keep truckin along, show after show. Another new venue come and gone, with another new one on the horizon. Thank you, Clancy's for a great night. Next up, Dogpatch Tavern in Hagerstown/Boonsboro-ish, MD. This venue is on old US 40 across the road from Greenbrier Lake State Park. See you there on October 19th!
This Saturday, the 21st, we will be in Keyser, WV at Clancy's Irish Pub. This is the first of our last four shows of the year and if you notice, we don't have anything booked for 2014, so you best get out and see us asap!
Thank you, Martinsburg! It's nice to play the occasional show that makes a meager bar band feel like arena rock stars. We offer our sincere gratitude to each and every one of you that come out and support local music. And thanks as always to Club 313 for hosting a great party!
Coming up on August 24th, we will be in Martinsburg, WV at Club 313 on Foxcroft Avenune. This will be their end of summer party with free food and refreshments, so come out and have some fun in the burg with us!
So this year, we are not playing the 'Private Event' where we have performed the past three Labor Day weekends. The hat trick was enough and it's time for some other bands to get in to OTR and rock that awesome stage. However, we must add that we will be playing a similar event on August 5th in Shippensburg, PA, the 2013 NSS Convention! Hope to see you there!
We have a couple of months off while we relax, work on finishing up album number two, and embark on some new personal endeavors. See you all in August!
Thanks for the great turnout to our recent shows! Martinsburg, you are giving Frederick a run for its money on being our rowdiest crowd! In other news, that mythical second album is coming together nicely. We're at the point in the studio where we are adding the vocal harmonies, sound effects, and this 'n that.
Also, coming up on May 18th is our next show at 28 South in Hagerstown, MD. The address is 28 South Potomac Street and its across the street from the Maryland Theater. This will be our last show for a while, as we won't have any shows after this one until August, so come send us off right before we embark on summer vacations, road trips, marriages, and general summer fun!
Saturday, March 16th, we are going to be at Club 313 in Martinsburg, WV. The Martinsburg Journal did this nice
article about us and the show. Check it out here.
Our show at Cactus Flats was a real hoot! Thanks to all you friends that came out and packed that room. All the hollerin and dancing was nice too.
Another great night in Hagerstown at Maloo's. Thanks to everyone that came out to see us. Up next, we play in Frederick at Cactus Flats on Saturday, February 16th. Mark your calendars now and be there early, front and center!
Come see us this Saturday, January 12th at Maloo's in Hagerstown, Robinwood Drive near HCC. It's our first show of a limited 2013 schedule, so help us make these sparse performances count!
Thank you to all the friendly faces we saw in Charles Town at Lonshots Billiards for our December show! Everyone have a Merry Christmas and overall happy Holiday season. Here's to a happy new year and many more fun times in 2013!
Go check out My Rural Radio to hear some great up and coming musicians with some Hucklebuck mixed in.
A couple of updates.....
We have a show at Olde Towne Tavern in Frederick, MD on November 17th. We are very excited about this show because downtown Frederick always is out in full force. We look forward to another rowdy crowd.
Recording of the new album has begun picking up momentum once again. Keith over at SkeeterByte recording has been tinkering with some of the tracks and they are sounding great. Guitars have been getting tracked over the last few weeks. We're getting there!
Halloween show coming up! Come see us on Saturday, October 27th at Gitfiddles near Frederick, MD. Costumes, good food and drink, and Hucklebuck playing from 9 to 1!
Saturday, September 29th, we are playing a DC show. Come see us at Acre121.
Lots of fun stuff is happening right now. We play our yearly OTR show in Dailey, WV in a little over a week, recording on that new album will pick back up shortly after, and we have a new order of T shirts hot off the press!
Our next show is at Cafe Nola in Frederick, MD on July 28th. Nola is one of our favorite venues to play, and it's right there in the thick of things in downtown Frederick at the corner of Market & Patrick Streets. We hope to see you there!
Come see us on Saturday, June 30th at Gitfiddles, just off Route 40 outside of Frederick. No cover charge, good food and good beer on tap. Gitfiddles is formerly the Orioles Nest.

05/14/12 - We have been featured once again on Richard Taylor's ROOTS ROCK RADIO SHOW. Go to rrradio.com and check out episode 156 to hear some Hucklebuck. And while you're at it, check out all the other episodes, too.
04/15/12 - Our next show is going to be Flying Dog Brewery's Firkin Fest on Saturday, May 19th at Stillpoint Farm in Mt Airy, MD. This event will close out Frederick Beer Week. Advanced tickets can be purchased HERE
03/31/12 - Due to some scheduling conflicts, we regretfully are going to have to postpone the Crazy Horse show originally scheduled for June. We hope to reschedule for fall.
02/27/12 - Yikes, it's been a while since we've updated this thing. We've been busy at Skeeterbyte Recording working on that new album. We've had a couple of full days to track a few songs and things are moving along just fine. Keep checking back as we promise to keep the updates more frequent and we will start adding more shows to the schedule very soon.
11/08/11 - If you've been looking at the SHOWS page, you probably noticed it's getting a little sparse. Don't you worry though, we're booking up 2012 currently and will start filling up that calendar very soon. Also, we look forward to beginning to record our second album in the early part of next year as well.
11/07/11 - On Friday, November 11th, we are opening for The Hawkeyes(http://www.reverbnation.com/hawkeyes) at The Blue Moon in Shepherdstown. Then on Saturday, we take the main stage at Bulls & Bears in Hagerstown. Come out and support some independent music.
10/08/11 - It is with great sadness that we share the news that our friend and number one fan, Shuffleboard Jim, passed away this morning in his sleep. He had been struggling with illness for a few weeks now. He will be missed.
9/28/11 - On October 8th, we are playing at a fundraiser being held at Circle D Farm in Woodbine, MD. Long story short, the Hoffman family holds this fundraiser every year in memory of one of their own, who was a police officer that died in the line of duty. They raise money with this event, all of which goes to two charities. This event is on Saturday, 10/8 from 1pm to 7pm, will have two bands- Soul Island Rebels & Hucklebuck, DJ, Horseshoe tournament, basketball, tennis, volleyball, raffles, mini golf, face painting, moonbounce, along with free food, drink, wine, and beer! $20 for tickets in advance, $25 the day of. You typically spend that much or more when you go out to see a live band considering the cost of dinner and bar tab, so you are really getting a lot for your money here while helping raise money for a worthy cause.
