Hootie and the Blowfish Tickets
Hootie and the Blowfish TicketsIn 1994 and 1995, with songs like "Only Wanna Be With You" and "Hold My Hand," Hootie & the Blowfish played on radio waves across the US and Canada. These became the songs of choice for many a driver's personal version of Carpool Karaoke throughout the mid-'90s. Many die-hard fans of the band Hootie & the Blowfish haven't forgotten the vocal stylings of lyric tenor Darius Rucker being backed by musicians Jim Sonefeld, Mark Bryan, Dean Felber and, occasionally, Brantley Smith. The band garnered huge success with its album Cracked Rear View, and in addition to "Only Wanna Be With You" and "Hold My Hand" rising to the top of the charts, songs like "Time, "Let Her Cry" and "Drowning" all became popular tunes from that album. Seeing a Hootie & the Blowfish concert means a chance to sing along again like it's 1995.
Will the Real Hootie Please Stand Up?Many people mistakenly assume that the band's lead singer, Darius Rucker is the "Hootie" part of the Hootie & the Blowfish.

The band was formed in 1986 and took a break in 2008 after decades of music. However, in 2018, Hootie & the Blowfish announced plans for a reunion tour.
