About

Hey Dude After Hours is Darren and Gabriella Gauger: a father-daughter duo based out of Rochester, NY.

Always a super-fan of live music, Darren wanted to take a shot at working in the industry he’d always loved. Old-time college friend & owner at Sticky Lips BBQ, Howard Nielsen gave him a night to play around with when he opened the second Sticky Lips location on Jefferson Rd in Rochester and Darren began the Wednesday Night Acoustic Series there. After years of success at the BBQ Joint and in an era where social media reigns king, Darren pulled in his daughter, Gabriella, to help out and together in 2016 they began to produce warm-month music and camping festivals at The “G” Lodge, which is some of their family property in Hannibal, NY.
