Droopie of the Month: June Edition 

This month’s Droopie is the Zip-Splasher Cripple of infamy, Mr  Tim (TIMMAY!) Iverson! We love Tim because he’s hilarious and always brings his punchy sense of humor. We even made a video JUST FOR HIM. As you can plainly see, I am the one dissenting voice of reason. I obviously love Timmy best. So anyways, here is my interview with the lovely Tim. 1.) How long have you been a Dregs fan? Since 2006 if I remember right. The year Chad and I first went to the MINNESOTA Renaissance Festival. That year, that first time at fest, that first Dregs show, changed […]

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 given.  The $5 rule will, of course, be in full effect at our show on Saturday night.  The $25 Virgin Sturgeon verse is also in full effect.  As is the $10 Lesbians in Socks. But we are an Irish band and for St. Patrick’s Day, […]

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 of traditional tunes like “Old Dun Cow” and “Johnny Jump-up” and yes, there is always the opportunity to request a song that isn’t on our set list.  The rules of Dregs requests are as fixed as gravity. But we always try to trot out a […]

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 worth posting on our web site.  So they did. What they came up with is one of those songs that is uniquely The Dregs.  Is it a song we’ll ever perform again?  Hell, I don’t know.  What I do know is a song like this […]

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 even post the event! You want to know what music we’re working on?  I’m going to be posting rehearsal recordings! You want to know what crazy stuff has happened in the rehearsal?  Yeah.  I’ll dish that out too. Last night we got together and started […]
