Clever. Very clever

My old rock & roll band was scheduled to play a concert for a Confederate Memorial Day celebration on Isle of Hope. Everybody in the band knew that "Dixie" was gonna be a request.

It's not a difficult song to play and the band could have perfected it in less than an hour, complete with three-part harmony on the vocals. But... somebody in the band thunk a thought. "How about we do it REGGAE?"

If you've never heard "Dixie" played reggae-style, you have not lived a full life. The song actually LENDS itself to that intrepretation and it sounds damn good. Plus--- most people have never heard it done that way before.

I don't play with the band anymore and I haven't for years. But they still play "Dixie" that way, and it brings the house down every time.

Ya, brodda man. Smooth.


Dude! I'm intrigued. Now I wanna hear it!

Really. Is there a CD of it I can buy. I have a rule about only owning a limited amount of them, but I'm wiling to stretch it for a reggae version of Dixie.
