Come spend 4 days & 4 nights at my boutique music getaway, Down The Hatch, in the stunning Outer Banks of NC. This is the 13th year for DTH and the unforgettable time we had last year can only get better in ’23! I have a renewed passion to bring the best of the best to the attendees and the artists.

My team and I have created a chill environment where musicians and Hatchers simply hang out together on the beach and throughout the hotel for the duration of DTH. During the day, set up your beach chair and umbrella, pack your coolers and kick back with your toes in the sand and relax while artists perform right in front of ya! If you’re motivated, join us for morning exercise/yoga/meditation sessions with the artists. In the evenings, we take over the scenic back decks of the hotel and the upstairs ballroom for some spirited evening rock shows. Yes, Headphone Disco and Friday’s Theme Night party (to be announced) will return in ’23, along with some other special sauce we’re cookin’ up. (Is it spring yet?!)

I’ve been saying it for years: There simply is nothing like Down The Hatch. Year after year, I strive to bring you the joy of discovery and make your time in Kill Devil Hills, NC as laid back as possible. The exact reason I produce this event is for the moments when I see and feel attendees having that major “wow” experience. It could be a certain impromptu artistic moment with several artists supporting one another; it could be the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean; it could be fans and artists having a cocktail; it could be the smiles on the faces around you. It all adds up to the DTH Experience. We keep it intimate, having less than 300 folks (including all the artists and staff), so you’ll be on a first-name basis with nearly everyone by the time you leave.

In addition to veteran artists, I am keeping my commitment to bring in fresh talent who have rocked my world over the years. I have a personal connection to each artist that attends the event, which makes it all the more special. Anyone who has attended DTH knows that I host the event to turn people on to new artists that I find to be phenomenal, authentic and unique. 2023 is no exception.

New names you’ll see this year: Fantastic Cat (along with solo sets by each member of this supergroup…Don Diego, Anthony D’Amato, Mike Montali and of course DTH cornerstone rocker, Brian Dunne. Also new in ’23: Dan Bern and Emily Earle, both of whom I performed with in Florida at the 30A Songwriter Fest. I was blown away by their unique talents and vibe. Todd Carey, who I met on the Train Cruise - his passion for entertaining is like no other and a nicer guy doesn’t exist. (Plus, he’s a fellow Deadhead, so look for Todd and I to be sneaking in some tasty jams.) Laura Tsaggaris is also new to DTH - she’s an amazing artist, with a killer voice, who I met through the fantastic organization, We Rock Cancer in Northern VA.

Another awesome aspect of DTH is that we offer a guitar playing/songwriting masterclass/jam session one morning in the ballroom. It's always an inspiring time and a cool way to bond with an artist or ask them anything and everything about the how to's of music.

I think what I’m most proud of after 12 DTH’s are the attendees. Having hosted this musical enlightenment for well over a decade, I don’t take it lightly and it has come to feel like an extended family reunion—a homecoming for so many.

My DTH heart beats to share new music and jaw-dropping experiences that make you stop and smell the roses like never before. For 2023, expect just that: new discoveries, fresh moments and a lifetime of memories with new friends. Hope to see YOU on the beach!

Pat’s DTH Sunday "Wine" Down

For the first year ever, we thought we’d try something extra special for Sunday. DTH officially ends on Saturday night and Sunday is usually a lovely day on the very quiet beach. I usually set up camp with a cooler, some amazing takeout, some delicious and well-earned adult libations and stare at the ocean, reflecting on DTH and taking mental notes on how the next year could be even better! Would you like to join me?


I am offering a chance to be a part of this casual roundtable hang, a catered think-tank if you will, followed by a relaxed all request set by Pat McGee and Patrick McAloon. Knowing us, this day will have all kinds of extras ;).

Pat’s DTH Sunday "Wine" Down

$150 per person (very limited capacity)

Exclusive access to:

*Casual day on the beach
