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 were suddenly asked to sing it last year, and Geoffrey and I did not have verses, so we decided to ‘fix’ the song, with Chad playing along afterwards. You end up with this masterpiece that has been nicknamed ‘Pants Pants’:   As a side note […]

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 the end of that clip. Talk about shameless self-promotion! (Thank you to Deanna Lyn Merdink for the use of her lovely video!) Also, check out here how we were involved in another couple become engaged as well. We thought it was merely a birthday party, so uh… we rushed […]

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 way more hair. Despite the circle of dong (which we’re not going to recreate), this weekend promises to be epic. with games and songs and beating up on Trevor. I can’t wait! We’re also going to sneak a couple new things into your favorite not-Renaissancy […]

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 is real. So real, a couple years ago someone paid me five dollars to bathe him in patchouli oil. Since Tim is a whore for money, he did so greedily and to my amusement complained all day about how badly he smelled. So it was […]

Sausage Fest 2014 

Welp, with Rachael gone in Europe, Suz gone due to heat exhaustion, I was the only female left in The Dregs on Sunday and Monday of this Labor Day fest weekend. If you don’t count Chad, that is.   Suz ended up getting ill after our 3:30 show, when I was actually recovering from *almost* being ill earlier. I just passed the torch, and Suz friggin devoured it. If you are observant, you’ll see that I’m not wearing my belt, and I’ve loosened my bodice because when you’re not feeling well, SCREW FASHION!!! So after Suze went home, I grew […]

The Dregs Renaissance Show – A Primer 

If you have never been to a Dregs show before, it may be a bit confusing your first time. There most likely will be some chaos, loudness, and maybe some humor. Let me help you understand what we like to call… ‘entertainment’.   First off, we have fans, and they RULE. Because they are Dregs Groupies, we call them ‘Droopies’. Totally makes sense, like Tim says. They like to pay us for songs. Our going rate is $5 a song. That is almost a dollar per person in the band, so you’re getting a deal! Our tagline line is, “for […]
