Dixie Doughboys – March 13, 2010

One of my favorite bands from NYC. I actually learned to Two-Step to them when I lived there back in the 1980’s. The original band lineup consisted of: Bruce Lang: bass, vocals and electric mandolin, Billy Lang: drums, vocals and glockenspiel, Guy “Fooch” Fischetti: fiddle, Bruce Derr: pedal steel and vocals, Skeeter Starke: rhythm guitar, bass and vocals. I hired them to play at my Swing Dance in Watertown, MA. They were joined by Joyce Anderson on fiddle and vocals. Below are the results. A great Western Swing Band and “The Best Two-Step Band in the Land”. Give a listen.

  1. I remember the group quite well. I used to look forward to their performances at the NYMCMA in Glendale, Nobody’s in Flushing and any other venue that I had an opportunity to attend. It is unfortunate that the live recordings I had were lost when the old Skylark was broken into. Used to listen to them all the time on the road. Some photos still exist from that time in photo albums buried away in my storage unit. Most memorable was when they opened for Garth Brooks at the Bandshell in Forest Park. I miss their entertaining style, especially Fooch on the fiddle or pedal steel guitar. Nobody could miss that unique hat of his.
