We are all saddened by the passing of John Hodgins, founder of the Irish Rogues and long time supporter of the SCMA and the NTIF.

John was an inspiration to musicians and followers of Irish music for many years. Almost every band playing in the Dallas area can proudly say that John was in so many ways their leader and mentor. We will all miss him.

The Restland Funeral Home website has posted the obituary for John. We refer everyone to that site for all details relating to our good friend John Hodgins.

Visitation from 6-8pm this Friday at Restland Funeral Home (13005 Greenville Ave just north of LBJ). Funeral Service at 3pm, Saturday at the Wildwood Chapel at Restland Funeral Home. A Grand Irish Wake will be held at the Hydrangea Room at Restland following the burial service. All instruments are welcome.
