"Thanks Jerry for your help!"
The band traces its beginnings to the band Dixie Grit, which started in a Georgia high school with Steve Morse on guitar and Andy Weston 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 were the “dregs” of Dixie Grit. Over the course of 40 years, the Dixie Dregs have released 11 albums and a number of compilations and re-issues. Along the way they have garnered six (!) GRAMMY® nominations. The band has played with several well-known additional guests — among others, Jerry Goodman (Mahavishnu Orchestra), Alex Ligertwood (Santana), and Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) — and its original band members have played and recorded on well over 300 releases (including Deep Purple and Winger/Jelly Jam.
