The critically acclaimed and reunited six-time GRAMMY®-Award nominatedmusical virtuosos THE DIXIE DREGS (a.k.a The Dregs) are earning strong reviews and generating wildly enthusiastic audience responses on their national "Dawn Of The Dregs" U.S. Tour, which began February 28 in Clearwater, FL *See critics' quotes below.
Their performances are marking the first time in 40 years the original band--Steve Morse (guitar), Andy West (bass), Allen Sloan (violin), Steve Davidowski (keyboards) and Rod Morgenstein (drums)-has shared the stage. An early highlight of their 36-date tour came when Warren Haynes(Gov't Mule) and jazz guitarist John Scofield joined the band for a blistering version of the blues classic "Crossroads" at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY on March 12.Guest musicians including Mark O'Connor and Reb Beach have also sat in with the band thus far, so fans can expect more surprise guests to join THE DIXIE DREGS on the tour's second leg.
The next leg of the tour kicks off April 11 in Milwaukee, followed by a two-night stand at the Boulder Theatre in Boulder, CO April 13 and 14 as it heads west for various shows throughout California.
