- In the late 60s Roger Earl and Lonesome Dave Peverett toured America as members of the seminal British band Savoy Brown who were on the cutting edge of the emerging British blues-rock scene. Foghat was formed in 1971 when Roger and Dave left Savoy, wanting to give a more rock 'n roll flavor to the blues-boogie music they had been playing. They took America by storm during the 1970s and dominated the airwaves with classic songs such as "Fool for the City," "Slow Ride," "Night Shift," "Stone Blue," "Third Time Lucky," and their cover of Willie Dixon's "I Just Want to Make Love to You." Foghat has never stopped touring and recording because they just love to play. That is what Foghat is all about … the music! In the last few years, the band has reached a whole new generation of fans due to their songs appearing on such popular games as Guitar Hero III, numerous movies, and TV ads, etc. As a result, the tour keeps going and the boogie continues. Foghat will perform at Robin Lake Beach on Saturday, July 18.  Advance tickets are $25; $35 day of show.  Gates will open at 6:30 p.m.  Showtime is 8 p.m.


On Friday, April 24, Callaway Gardens will once again feature Symphony on the Sand featuring the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Special events, including Memorial Day Weekend featuring the Masters Water Ski & Wakeboard Tournament, July 4th Star Spangled Beach Party and the Labor Day Sky High Hot Air Balloon Festival will each have a lineup of great musical acts.  In addition, every Saturday night between Memorial Day and Labor Day will feature a concert.

"The atmosphere of Callaway Gardens and Robin Lake Beach is just amazing.  Past concerts have proven that you just add musicians and concert-goers and you have a great experience," said Buddy Wallace of Wallace Productions.  "This is a win-win-win experience for everyone involved.  This lineup appeals to all most anyone.  We hope everyone will find their favorite acts and come out to a concert."
