Event Details


In 1985, Mark Bryan heard Darius Rucker singing in a dorm shower at the University of South Carolina and asked him to form a band. For the next eight years, Hootie & the Blowfish — completed by bassist Dean Felber and drummer Soni Sonefeld — played every frat house, roadhouse and rock club in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast, becoming one of the biggest independent acts in the region. Thirty years after the band’s major label debut, author Tim Sommer pulls back the curtain on the band that defied record-industry odds to break into the mainstream by playing hacky sack music in the age of grunge in Only Wanna Be With You: The Inside Story of Hootie & the Blowfish.
