On Monday, Sept. 3, Woody's Waterside at 3051 Stringfellow Road in St. James City will host the 5th annual Pine Island All American Labor Day BBQ and Picnic, featuring Yard Dog Charlie of The Yard Dogs from 2-5 p.m.
Charlie has been playing every Monday at Woody's for almost four years. Mardi Gras Mondays, as they are called, have grown into a weekly event attended by people from all over the world.
Charlie is well known locally as vocalist, accordionist and keyboardist for The Yard Dogs, one of our most popular area bands. His new CD, "Main Squeeze" is a crowd favorite and represents a cross section of his live show, mixing originals like "You Can't Drink Stupid Smart" and "Chick Chaser and Money Waster" with cover songs from "Midnight Special" to Fats Domino's "My Girl Josephine," all with a swampy Americana groove.
For additional information about the Labor Day bash or other special events, call Woody's Waterside at 239-283-5555.
