Below is the original feature I ran when I was introducing, promoting and handling advance ticket sales for the show. It was a sell out on a Wednesday night — not an easy feat! Do you rush out on Hump Day?
“Meet The Doggetts” is a musical variety show set to hit the stage of Jammin’ Java on Wednesday, January 6, 2010 at 7:30pm. The Fab Four lineup features the musical talents of father Tony Doggett and his three sons — Brad, Ben and Clinton. Tony has served an extensive career in the foreign service, playing pop frontman in the Tony Doggett Band and charting a Top 40 hit in Zimbabwe. Brad is a teen heartthrob, with several hip hop/r&b music videos netting over to a million views on YouTube and an upcoming appearance on a new TV show The Voice. Ben is advancing a debut record and leads the music ministry at Christ Our Shepherd Church in Washington DC. Clinton has been touring to San Francisco and back with the rock band More Human to promote their Enamel Records EP.
Together, the Doggetts are Northern Virginia’s phenomenal pop family — performing for the first time on one stage. Co-produced by Eric S. Townsend & Tony Doggett. Booking & promotions by ESTMKTG/SplashKit. Paste Magazine calls Jammin’ Java “one of the Top 40 music venues in America.” AOL CityGuide & Washington Post recognize the venue as “Best Place to Hear Live Music” & “Best Coffeeshop.”

The following year, ESTMKTG packaged the second concert. Instead of taking a “Fab Four” Beatles angle, we opted for a Pez-themed brand. The postcard and poster won a Service Industry Advertising Award (SIAA).
