Danny Zelisko Presents
Dawn of the Dregs Tour
With much anticipation and in response to demand from devoted fans, the original lineup announces a return to live performance for the Dawn of the Dregs Tour. Over the course of 40 years, the Dixie Dregs have released 11 commercial albums of original material, and a number of compilations, reissues and countless live bootlegs also exist. Along the way they have garnered six Grammy® nominations, and established themselves in the firmament of American instrumental music, having created a uniquely instrumental-driven style that has stood the test of time.
The band traces its true beginnings to the band Dixie Grit, which started in a Georgia high school with Steve Morse on guitar and Andy West on bass. Dixie Grit morphed into the Dixie Dregs at the University of Miami School of Music, where Allen Sloan (violin) and Rod Morgenstein (drums) joined with Steve and Andy, who were the “dregs” of Dixie Grit. After graduation, the band moved back to Augusta, where Steve Davidowski (keyboards) completed the band that would eventually emerge and become known simply as The Dregs.
