Dixie Dregs, the all-instrumental rock band that often traverses into the boundaries of other genres, is coming to The Coach House on Friday, April 20.

The hit band of the 70s and onward is doing a reunion tour, playing tracks from previous records. Guitarist Steve Morse said the performance will take audiences back.

“Back in the 70s we were one of the first all-instrumental rock bands and we distinguished ourselves with having mainly rock and classic, jazz and bluegrass,” Morse said. “This trip, we’re actually doing a nostalgia reunion for the first time in almost 42 years.”

With the guitar-centric tunes taking dominance in tracks, Morse said their sound has become more mellow since the band’s days in the 70s, when the members were in their 20s. Overall, Morse said the show will be a fun atmosphere with positivity.

“It’s just a positive experience, absolutely no negativity—except for maybe some cynical song titles, but that’s it. Just a good time for the family, especially if your family (members) are musicians.”

Unfortunately, tickets for Dixie Dregs just sold out; however, other noteworthy bands coming to The Coach House soon include Y & T, a rock band from the 80s that opened for Motley Crue; Hal Ketchum, a country performer of 20-plus years; and Zeppelin USA, a tribute band to Led Zeppelin.
