The Dixie Dregs at Scottish Rite Auditorium

Read "The Dixie Dregs at Scottish Rite Auditorium" reviewed by Geno Thackara

The Dixie Dregs Scottish Rite Auditorium Collingswood, NJ March 9, 2018 They've always remained one of the most under-the-radar of fusion bands. The Dixie Dregs' every-damn-thing- at-once musical stew could have hardly been better designed to elude widespread exposure--too much jazzy complexity for a group of rockers, too much country and ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
