Local music enthusiast, guitarist, and booking agent Stuart “Allnight” Johnson is quite excited about an upcoming gig at A Dough Re Mi. “Former guitarist for Sheryl Crowe, Todd Wolfe has been electrifying the blues festival circuit for years,” he says. “Now he’s coming to the Lowcountry and he’ll be at the Lowcountry’s home for the blues, A Dough Re Mi on Sat. Dec. 1. After two years, once again Allnight Booking and Road Dawg Touring Company are working together to make A Dough Re Mi a regular stop for National blues performers,” says Johnson. “In the past, they have brought: Scott Holt Band, Jason Ricci & New Blood, Harmonica Red, Rand McAlister, and many others. This time, it’s Todd Wolfe.”
