What $5 actually gets you

Some people have indicated to us through the years that our policy of offering “Whatever you want” for $5 is a bit overpriced. To this I say, “You never asked me for a BJ in the 90’s.” Talk about overpriced. Anyhoo, I think $5 is a bargain compared to what some things cost, like a […]

Gotta Hang On Till Tomorrow

COME WHAT MAAAAAAAAAAAAAY….. Okay kids, this is mostly an INFORMATIONAL BLOG. No funny business, ya hear? We have a show to do, and we’re goddamn professionals here! *snerk* Well, most of that was true. Let’s get down to brass tacks. How much to f*ck the goat? WAIT WRONG QUESTION. How is this going to work […]

Well that escalated quickly

I have often said that a band is only as good as its audience. This stance says a lot about my feelings on bands such as Guns & Roses One Direction or Gwar We don’t do a lot of shows outside of Fest. It does make the time we spend with our fans extra special. […]

bloggy sabbatical

Well, maybe you noticed and maybe you didn’t that last week came and went without a blog post. I noticed. On Saturday. That is. Yeah, yours truly is in graduate school and this semester is really starting to ramp up and has started stomping my will to live. I may as well admit that I […]

All for Me Grog

Okay, so I maybe forgot yesterday to post something. I got the grad school blues, baby, and it’s impeding on bloggy time. So it’s Friday and here I am anyways. Time to talk about GROG. ‘All for Me Grog‘ is an old folk song that The Dregs used to sing a long time ago. We […]

Last Weekend of MRF, 2014

Well, Droopies, it’s all over. Another season at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival came and went. Laughter was had, puppets worn, proposals made, battles of bands fought (WE WON), and many hugs given. We can’t thank you enough for the amazing year. Without YOU, none of this would be possible. Tim is ever the romantic at […]

Battle of the Bands 2014

Alright, before we begin WHO CHOSE THE NAKEY MAN PHOTO TO REPRESENT AN EPIC SMACK DOWN? Chad called it ‘homoerotic’. I called it ‘what the actual frack’. Freud calls it ‘Tim Wick dealing with some nakey man issues…’ Wait.. it’s a battle, and we’re doing a battle, except with Four Pints Shy, you would see […]

MRF, weekend five: PATCHOULI

If you’ve ever seen The Dregs doing what Tim refers to as ‘morning walkies’, you’ve seen us enter into The Alchemist screaming, “DON’T WANNA SMELL LIKE NO DAMN IRISH PERSON NO MORE!” to which I always squee, “PATCHOULIIIIIIIIIII”, and Tim looses his shit. His hatred of patchouli comes from a place deep within. The struggle […]

MRF, weekend four

Okay, so we here at The Dregs occasionally write some original music. Sometimes it’s an outlet for real life, other times it… based on a Syfy made for TV movie. Enter ‘Sharknado’, stage left. Yeah, it’s a movie about sharks in a tornado. How could Tim and Geoffrey resist? The answer is NOT WELL. So […]
