we want YOU

absolutely not strange
absolutely not strange

This is either the best idea ever or going to be a mark of shame like the scarlet letter. I want to start doing a blog on here for *drum roll* Droopie of the Month.

What is a droopie, you ask? Well, it’s a mish-mash of the words ‘Dreg’ and  ‘Groupie’. This gold nugget was around before I joined the band. In fact, here is a video from the old Dregs Documentary that has Tim … being Tim, I guess.

I may or may not have recorded that blip with my phone. I’m just that tech savvy, and by savvy I mean NOPE.

So what exactly do I need? How does this impact you? How can you set up your friend for potential embarrassment for your pleasure? I’m so glad you asked! Leave a comment in the comments below OR message our Dregs Facebook Page. Include the name of the person you want to nominate (it’s cool if that’s yourself) and why they should be nominated. Include photos, stories, whatever contributions they have made to the band and I will make sure to honor them accordingly!

This can be as fun as you would like! If there is a really special thing you would like us to do (take a weird picture of the band, or give them a shout out video), just say so, and your wish is our command! We of course, have full licence to loosely translate any and or all requests.

…. I may live to regret this, but who cares! TO GLORY! AND DROOPIES!

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.

    I nominate Maggie Heck for Droopie of the month… She was given the nickname of Jello-shot Girl by Geoffrey… as in “Hey Jello-shot girl is here” when she attends some of your shows. Maggie has also been to almost every single show that the Dregs have put on. Please consider her for Droopie of the month.

    I think I’ve done your sound enough that I should totally get to be your droopie.

    As far as what you actually do about it… Surprise me.
