The Sundogs Celebrate the Life & Music of Tom Petty

On Friday, December 8th at Smith’s Olde Bar, The Sundogs will present THE TOM PETTY SHOW, for the 8th consecutive year and certainly most emotional and important. Tom’s shocking passing in October has left an unmistakable void in the world, but thankfully his songs are eternal. On this evening, The Sundogs will look to channel all of those emotions into an incredible rock ‘n roll show filled with his hits, rarities and b-sides with a full house singing along to every damned word.

Keeping it in the family this year, The Haraway Brothers will open the show at 9 PM with a set from their
latest release “The Haraway Brothers Wish You Love & Luck in the World.”

This is a special show, so we urge you to buy TICKETS in advance. VIP tables are also available for groups.

Tom never quit, never rested on his laurels and never stopped trying to top himself. THAT’s the spirit The Sundogs will bring to this show. 


The Haraway Brothers Debut Album Release & Show in Atlanta

On Saturday, June 17, Will & Lee Haraway, who founded the great Atlanta rock ‘n roll band, The Sundogs, will celebrate their debut record together, titled The Haraway Brothers Wish You Love & Luck in the World at the fantastic, ornate Vista Room in Decatur, GA. 
The show starts at 8 PM with a set from the Bradley Cole Smith Band and then the Haraway Brothers come on at 9 PM, doing every song from the new album, plus some Sundogs tunes and some fun choice covers. Following that set, both bands will take the stage together for a Thank You For Coming set of the danciest Grateful Dead tunes in their entire catalog. It will be a huge night of music!

Released on May 5, The Haraway Brothers’ Wish You Love & Luck in the World is exactly what the title describes, a sincere wish and a shot of good, positive vibes for everyone that lets music into their ears and hearts. Smart, funny and occasionally sad songwriting is buoyed by brilliant brotherly harmonies, heartbreaking pedal steel guitar and searing guitar leads from Benji Shanks (who also produced the album) that would make the late great Waylon Jennings cry. If you’re on board with Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Ryan Bingham and BJ Barham, The Haraway Brothers Wish You Love & Luck in the World will be an instant addition to your listening universe. For more information on the new album, visit

The Sundogs present the Tom Petty Show in Atlanta

sundogs-tps16_posterThe Sundogs return to Smith’s Olde Bar on Friday, Dec. 9 to play the songs of the great Tom Petty. You’ll get the full Sundog on this fine evening with Lee, Will, Jon, Benji, Kevin and Kevin giving you all the hits, some of the b-sides and all of the awesomeness from our very favorite songwriter and rocker. Opening the show at 8:30 sharp will be our buddies Wayne Glass and Alan Conner’s new band Shadowlands followed by the fine band Amsterdam Station.
“Friday night was the third annual Tom Petty Show and the Sundogs dished out a selection of tunes covering Petty’s entire catalog. If you wanted classic petty then you got “American Girl”, “Only The Losers” and “Don’t Do Me Like That”. Folks that came of age in the 80’s were thrilled to hear “You Got Lucky”, “Don’t Come Around Here No More” and “Runnin’ Down A Dream”. They had the crowd singing along with “Last Dance For Mary Jane” and “Free Fallin'” then brought out Mimi Thomas for a damn fine “Stop Dragging My Heart Around”. These dudes hit on every song the crowd wanted to hear and they nailed the Heartbreaker’s sound with jangly guitars, keyboards and sweet vocal harmonies.” — Chris Martin, Atlanta Examiner

Burn Social Club Set to Open in Buckhead

Burn Social ClubOn July 15th, Andrews Entertainment District brings the fire to the ice by introducing Burn Social Club next to Czar Ice Bar, both located at 56 East Andrews Drive NW. Burn is a modern day supper club featuring light fares, flatbreads and signature dishes served Wednesday through Saturday for dinner from 7pm-11pm along with great boutique wines by the glass and craft beers. Led by master bartender Thomas McGuire, a world class craft cocktail program will showcase a flavored ice program including smoked ice featured in the Burn Old Fashioned as well as an extensive martini selection and over 50 rare bourbons, whiskies and scotches from around the world. Patrons will be entertained by live music & dancing beginning at 8pm until midnight and late night DJs from midnight to 2:30am. Wednesday is Latin Elegance Salsa night, Thursday features the sounds from the Atlanta Rat Pack night while Friday and Saturday has Burn’s own high energy house band Cinnamon Groove playing top 10 hits from the 80s until today. With no cover during dinner, Burn Social Club’s admission is $10 after 10pm. Gentlemen are required to wear collared shirts and encouraged to wear jackets.

The 4000 square foot space can seat approximately 150 patrons throughout the venue with three levels of seating. Guests will enter through Czar Ice Bar where a discreetly marked door shows the Burn flaming martini icon. Once inside, there is a large stage with a centerpiece fireplace, and exposed brick walls, LED lighting and state of the art sound. While high top tables surround the dance floor, a large dramatic bar with a hand painted ceiling in oranges, reds and yellows further enhance the fire feeling of Burn. Across the room is a plush seating lounge with black leather sofas, sophisticated crystal chandeliers, fireplace, and library wall.

Burn Tapas“Inspired by the supper clubs of the 30s and 40s, Burn is a true social club where guests gather to socially eat and drink, be entertained and enjoy the company of friends,” said Andrews Entertainment District President Steve de Haan. “Burn was created as a nightlife alternative.  Atlanta doesn’t lack for places to take a date for dinner, but does not have many upscale venues to go to after dinner where the energy is high, yet is still intimate enough to carry on a conversation.  A place to be entertained by true performers, and not just musicians, our goal is to marry the timeless sophistication of Prohibition with premier entertainment and dancing.”

Located in the heart of Buckhead, Andrews Entertainment District is a world class destination with exceptional dining, entertainment, and nightlife. With diverse and distinct venues conveniently located in over 30,000 square feet under one roof, Andrews Entertainment District is the home of The Atlanta Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theatre, Stout Irish Sports Bar, Cellar 56Czar Ice Bar,  Stillhouse Craft Burgers & Moonshine,  Burn Social ClubProhibition, and Sal’s Pizzeria. Featuring the Nation’s best comedians, live entertainment, DJs, world class cocktails, and a lively bar scene, Andrews Entertainment District is where Atlanta goes out for a night out on the town.

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) refers to a group of diseases which affect the motor neurons of the spinal cord and brain stem. These critically important cells are responsible for supplying electrical and chemical messages to muscle cells. Without the proper input from the motor neurons, muscle cells can not function properly. The muscle cells will, therefore, become much smaller (atrophy) and will produce symptoms of muscle weakness.
