Happy Anniversary to Moi

Saint Patrick’s Day is a special time for an Irish band, and that’s no different for The Dregs. It’s especially special because it marks my anniversary with the band. While I looked to find photographic evidence of that major event (how the hell can you call yourself ‘Irish’ without a FIDDLE PLAYER?), I could not find any. So you’ll have to check out some of my favorite moments during my first year with the band instead!

Here is the Angelina farewell party. Remember when folding your pants like that was fashionable? Maybe that’s just me…

Then we had a show at O’Garas, and I got lost. For whatever reason, the GPS lead me to the wrong place. It’s been an inside joke ever since. With friends like these, I tell ya.

Excel Center? Wherefore art thou, O Excel Center?!

Siouxland with The Dregs! This weekend I fondly remember as ‘trial by fire’. You assclowns threw me to the wolves. Thanks.

Next we see what could possibly be my first weekend with The Dregs. I look amused and confused. Not much has changed.

This is the first (and certainly not the last) time I let some of my derpy personality show in a photo. I’m a delicate flower!!!!

your guess is as good as mine

Then we decided to decorate Folkstone with chalk. That ended up badly for EVERYONE…

the infamous Chalkgate!!!

And my first holiday show (and ugly sweater). Are Chad and Rachael even at the same show? Tim is obviously amused and like the entirety of my first year, I have no idea what was going on.

why does Chad look so surprised?

That concludes our twisted trip down memory lane. I am so lucky to have been able to be a part of this band. Here’s to many more years of ridiculousness!

About Author: Molly
Molly has been hogging the spotlight since she first started playing the violin in 1988. She soon realized a life of performance and poverty is more exciting than earning a sustainable living, so she double majored in music and theater. After years of romping around at reputable places in the Twin Cities including The Minnesota Opera Chorus, Bloomington Civic Theater, and The Jungle Theater, Molly lowered her standards and gave The Dregs a try in 2010 and finally made this 'Irish' band legit with a fiddle player. Molly is going to graduate school for her masters in education to hopefully learn how she went so very wrong.
