A great cause and Great Day Live

The Hounds are proud to continue our support of the Dona O'Sullivan Fund to Fight Homelessness.

Dona was an indefatigable fighter for social and economic injustice. She recognized the importance of excellent educational and professional development in assuring that front-line social workers are able to furnish effective service and advocacy.

Earlier today, we joined Maria Price (Executive Director of the St. John's Center for Homeless Men and a member of the Dona Fund) on WHAS-TV's Great Day Live to share information about the Fund's annual fundraiser (and to play a couple of tunes).

On Monday, Flanagan's Ale House (934 Baxter Avenue) will donate proceeds from food sales to the Fund. This is an all-day fund-raiser, and Flanagan's opens at 11, so drop by for lunch.

From 6-9 pm, the Hounds will furnish music on the patio (but this is a rain or shine event; if Hurricane Florence sends weather our way, we'll move inside to Ale House banquet area).

Here's a video clip of today's interview and performance. We played John McCutcheon's "Y'all Means All," a great (and timely) song about diversity and compassion. By the way, Maria Price took the photo above.

And here's a somewhat condensed version of Woody Guthrie's "I Ain't Got No Home"

We hope you'll join us.

Hound (dogs) of the Buskervilles at Clifton's Pizza, Friday Jan. 8

Where is Elvis? Even the FBI doesn't know.  But we do know he was a Hound. 

And he liked bananas. And he liked peanut butter. So Clifton's Pizza is bringing in a jet plane, directly from the state of Maine, with a full supply of Whoopie Pies in both of those flavors. 

And since E. was a Hound, he might just sneak into Clifton's this Friday to hear Hound of the Buskervilles pay some kind of homage to the master.  

Then again, he might not. And we might not.  But can you really stand not knowing?  

We'll start playing at 7:30. 

There is no cover - but children still get in free.  
Clifton's is at 2230 Frankfort Avenue.  No Cover.
(Note: This is a Les Triplettes des Buskervilles gig (Dan, Eddie, and Marty) because our musical colleague Phil is playing across town with MVP.)  

What Would Elvis Do? He'd celebrate with the Hounds at Clifton's Pizza. Friday January 8

It's the King's 81st birthday. Sure, you could stay home and watch "Kissin' Cousins" on TCM.

But what would Elvis do? He'd join the Hound [Dogs] of the Buskervilles at Clifton's Pizza.


First: this week's line-up of authentic Whoopie Pies (shipped in via jet airplane from Maine) includes Banana Whoopies and Peanut Butter Whoopies.

Second: Calzones and Pizza.

Third: He would want to know just how the Hounds will pay him tribute.
Music: 7:30.  Clifton's, 2230 Frankfort Avenue.  No Cover.
(Note: Alas, this show features only 3/4 of the Hounds - Dan, Eddie, and Marty (Phil is across town with his outstanding trio, MVP).

Friday is the Eve of All Hallows Eve, and Frankfort Avenue will be hopping from one end to the other.

Here are three scary good reasons to find your way to The Wine Rack (2632 Frankfort Avenue).

1. The folks from Schlafly St. Louis Brewery will be on hand with samples of various brews.  

2. Our friends at Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese will also be on hand with delectable offerings.

3. Hound of the Buskervilles (all four of us, Dan, Phil, Eddie, and Marty) will be in the courtyard, playing music on what is projected to be a superb October night.

Join us for a sip, a nibble, and a listen (the music starts at six, and will continue until 8:30 or 9).
