Outtakes

I’m sure all bands do this but when The Dregs get into the studio and record, we make a lot of mistakes.  I mean a lot of mistakes.  To outsiders, it would be surprising to discover we actually know the songs we are trying to record. Chad saves these mistakes forever because he’s kind of […]

St. Paddy’s Day is Over – What’s Next?

Actually it is the day after St. Patrick’s day.  We had a great holiday with a fantastic show on Saturday night with new and old fans and a performance at the Irish Festival of Music and Dance in downtown St. Paul on Monday.  I always feel like we should do more on St. Patrick’s day […]

TAP DANCING VIOLIN SOLO!

So everyone is coming to see our St. Paddy’s day show at the Bryant Lake Bowl, right?  I bring this up because we have a brand new Dregs feature to share with everyone! Now everyone knows that The Dregs will perform any song you request for $5, even if we don’t know it.  That’s a […]

What Are You Doing for St. Patrick’s Day?

I’m sorry, the title of this post is misleading.  I really should have asked what you are doing on Saturday, March 15th (at 10:00 PM). I know what The Dregs are doing.  We’re going to be playing our annual St. Patrick’s day concert at the Bryant Lake Bowl. As always, we’ll be playing a lot […]

See What Happens When I’m Not Around?

I wasn’t able to be at The Dregs rehearsal this week because I had a ping pong ball in the Minnesota Fringe lottery.  I’m sure that they worked on some great music. Well that’s what I hope happened.  But I asked them to send me a recording from rehearsal if anything came up that was […]

It’s a Miracle we Get Anything Done

We rehearse most every Monday night and given the amount of time we spend goofing off, I sometimes wonder how we ever learn any music at all. One of our new goals for the year is to get into the studio once a month to put together some good quality songs for anyone who wants […]

All Things Must Come to an End

Before I get to the main thrust of my article, I’m going to suggest that you read a comedy piece I wrote on my main blog page if only because you should take every conceivable opportunity to quote your favorite lines to Molly.  She’ll love it! One of our favorite shows of the year has […]

Rehearsal With The Dregs

Molly has been completely hogging the Dregs Blog and it has to stop.  That’s why I’m here and I’ll be back every Tuesday.  I’m going to do things a little differently.  I’m going to tell you about what the band is doing. You want to know where we’ll be performing?  I’ll tell you before we […]
