Hootie & The Blowfish, comprised of Mark Bryan, Dean Felber, Darius Rucker and Jim “Soni” Sonefeld, formed the band during their time as students together at the University of South Carolina. Starting with their double-Diamond certified debut album, Cracked Rear View,the band has sold more than 25 million albums.
Represented by CAA’s Darin Murphy and managed by Maverick’s Clarence Spaulding, the band has reported more than 1.2 million tickets sold as reported to Pollstar, and grossed more than $56 million dating back to 1999.
“Basically overnight, our lives changed when Cracked Rear View did what it did – and yet as we quickly moved from vans and college bars to tour busses and arenas, not much else changed with how we approached making music and sharing it with our fans,” Mark Bryan says. “Edwin McCain told someone at the time that touring with us felt like summer camp with trucks… and that’s exactly how we want next year to feel, too. We can’t wait for you to join us!”
In addition to playing limited engagements, including their annual Monday After the Masters charity event which raises funds to support educational programs and the South Carolina junior golf program.
