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 […]

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 […]

weekend two, arrr matey 

This past weekend was, while still moist, full of freebooters. Poachers. Raiders! Marauders. In other words, we be overrun by PIRATES! Fun fact! The origin of the word ‘pirate’ is from the Greek peiratēs, from peirein ‘to attempt, attack’. Attempting, but not necessarily successful. Wah wah wah. Speaking of attempting to be a pirate… God, that photo is terrible on SO MANY levels, but I am willing to post it publicly for YOUR amusement, Droopies. That’s how much I love you. This coming weekend is the ‘silk road’ weekend, aka, belly dancers. Watch me NOT bare my midriff, cuz let’s just say some things are […]

Special Dreg Moments; Brought to you by Derp 

We like to consider ourselves professionals in The Dregs. We play instruments (and the accordion), sing (about carrots and zombies), and have high caliber shows (if we can begin on time… or remember the key signature… or who starts the bloody song). So maybe ‘professionals’ was the wrong word to use. It does seem as though we’re a bunch of hacks that somehow manage to see a song to its end, and the amazing thing is not necessarily our talent, but that we can pull it off convincingly. But we’re YOUR hacks Droopies <3. And we love what we do, […]
