Profile
Dixie Dregs (sometimes billed as just The Dregs) is an American band formed in the 70s. Their mostly instrumental music fuses jazz, southern rock, bluegrass and classical forms in an often unique style. The Dixie Dregs evolved from an Augusta, Georgia band called Dixie Grit, formed by Steve Morse (guitar) and Andy West (bass) in 1970. The Dregs proper came together at the University of Miami, with Morse and West joined by Allen Sloan (violin) and a series of drummers, settling on Rod Morgenstein by the recording of their first album. Since that time, personnel has changed a number of times, with Morse and Morgenstein remaining on board.
