Six-time Grammy nominated, instrumental group Dixie Dregs and their “Dawn of the Dregs Tour will be in concert at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. “This tour is the result of the overwhelming requests we’ve received from a loyal audience of diehard Dregheads, and new fans who have never seen us perform live, but discovered the band for the first time through Steve’s membership in Deep Purple, or Rod as the drummer for Winger”, said Dreg’s bassist Andy West. “We can’t wait to play for them all”, West added.
The band traces its true beginnings to the band Dixie Grit, which started in a Georgia high school with Steve Morse on guitar and Andy West on bass. Dixie Grit morphed into the Dixie Dregs at the University of Miami School of Music, where Allen Sloan (violin) and Rod Morgenstein (drums) joined up with Steve and Andy, who where the “dregs” of Dixie Grit. After graduation, the band moved back to Augusta, where Steve Davidowski (keyboards) completed the band that would eventually emerge and become known simply at The Dregs.
Over the course of 40 years, the Dixie Dregs have released 11 albums of original material and a number of compilations, reissues and countless live bootlegs also exist. Along the way, they have garnered six Grammy nominations. The band has played with several well-known additional alumni and guests and its original members have played and recorded on well over 300 releases including Deep Purple (Steve Morse) and Winger/Jelly Jam (Rod Morgenstein).
