In January 2017, five of us (Steve Morse, Rod Morgenstein, Allen Sloan, Steve Davidowski, Andy West) decided to meet up and play some of the old tunes just for fun. We had a blast doing this, and started talking seriously about playing together again as the Dixie Dregs! Our shared history goes way back in time. For some of us, that reaches as far back as high school in the early 70’s! The synergy we felt playing together again, and our shared love of the songs, made us all think it would be worthwhile and possible. This is what subsequently led to our ‘Dawn of the Dregs’ reunion tour which took place in 2018.
We decided to focus on the Free Fall band that had the first real record deal, though from that first incarnation some incredibly great musicians have been part of the band’s legacy. Those who performed live and on recordings other than Free Fall include Jerry Goodman, Dave Larue, Jorden Rudess, and Mark O’Connor. Sadly, our other two keyboardists, Mark Parrish and T Lavitz, are no longer with us. But Mark’s playing on ‘What If’ and ‘Night of the Living Dregs’, and T’s unmistakable sound on every Dregs album since, certainly keep their memories alive.
This site will for now mainly be an archive the 2018 reunion tour. However, there are many user created videos on YouTube if you missed it. (Some are pretty good, some not so much..but c’est la vie, right?)
Who knows what the musical future will bring for the Dregs? But for now. we are very thankful to have had the experience playing together and bringing the music alive once again. So We Thank You! Meanwhile you can visit our sites linked below:

It was originally created by a third party who used a WordPress theme and a bunch of plugins that are no longer compatible with the minimally secure version of PHP necessary to run it without issues, and our hosting provider updated it unconditionally (correctly so). Until I have time to redo it, this page will have to suffice. Thanks to all the wonderful music lovers for your support! – Andy West
