The Bellamy Brothers will perform at 8:30 p.m. on Jan 29 at Dosey Doe The Big Barn. Tickets start at $98 and includes dinner, served until 7:30 p.m.

Brothers David Milton and Homer Howard are approaching 40 years performing together. Their first hit was the crossover success "Let Your Love Flow," released on a 1976 album of the same name. The hit made it all the way to the top position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In July, the band announced on its website that they would donate $1 to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Foundation for every iTunes download of their new compilation album "40 Years." A portion of merchandise sales at shows will also be donated to the breast cancer advocacy organization.

"We've had so many people in our lives who have been affected by this terrible disease," David Bellamy said in the press release. "We hope the money raised will go a long way to help those out there who are fighting for their lives."

The new compilation album, released in May, combines 20 of the band's greatest hits with 20 new songs.
