    After seeing the Dave Larue clinic at BC, Orlando, I wanted to see the Dixie Dregs live.
    Saw them last night (my first time) In Jacksonville.
    I am completely blown away, everyone played great individually and as a unit. If anyone gets a chance to see these guys, do yourself a favor, go to a show

  2. Bill, they're playing here in Orlando at the House of Blues tomorrow night, you should drive over!! ;)

    I can't go, leaving early Friday morning on vacation!!! :(

    That was my plan A, but i'm playing at church, that's why I went last night.
    The venue was the Freebird Cafe, nice place, pretty intimate, it wasn't anwhere near filled to it's capacity.

    and Have a good trip.
  4. Saw them there a few years ago, I love that venue, and they definitely rocked the house that night. I'd expect no less from them now! :cool:
  5. Cool, Gard. Thanks :cool:

    I see you caught the old man eating lunch :D

    Dave's a monster player, and he's funny as heck, too.
  11. That's rough Cass, that is where my hair was about two months ago! JK, I was a long-haired skinny kid until I got fat bald and old.

    He sucks! :p

    I've been told I have a bald spot back there for years now. I've just never seen it. My dad's pretty bald, and was at my age, so I think I'm safe. *breathes again*

    Way ahead of ya, fella. :) The Dregs have been on my short list of "must see" acts since I first saw them in 1980 (yeah, I'm dating myself).

    I'll be at this show. Can't wait!

  17. Hey, I go back a little before that even. First heard of them in 1978 and first saw them later the next year in Tallahassee FL at FSU...on HALLOWEEN NIGHT!!! oohhhh yeahhh.

    And I carry with me a little bit of trivia from that show...The question would be - How did the tune "Punk Sandwich" get it's name?
