After Tony Herdman's band competed in Canal Street Tavern's Dayton Band Playoffs, they wanted to thank the fans that came out and supported them throughout the competition. So they decided to host an evening of food and music outdoors, and Hog Jam was born. Over the past 8 years, the event has grown into a two day music festival with a growing lineup and audience.
Tony Herdman and fellow musician Charlie Tipton visited the WYSO studios for an acoustic set on Kaleidoscope. The pair spoke gave listeners a preview of Hog Jam and chatted with host Juliet Fromholt about writing, recording and finding inspiration in music.
Hog Jam is August 23 and 24 at the Franklin VFW Campground.
