Bill’s Postings Vol. 2

Bill Meredith may be cool, but the Dillengers are red hot!
Bill Meredith may be cool, but the Dillengers are red-hot!

 Bill’s latest column for the Palm Beach Post is on one of my favourite local bands, The Dillengers. This rockabilly/surf-rock/country/blues combo is something of an institution in South Florida, after seventeen years of existence. In particular, this trio has logged numerous nights at Elwood’s, a former gas station by the railroad tracks in Delray Beach converted (barely) into a blues bar and barbecue joint (motto: “Eat Here. Get Gas”). 

The group’s most recent CD, 2004’s Instro-mania (album cover pictured above), was actually re-released nationally on Favoured Nations, a record label founded by legendary guitarist Steve Vai. Read Bill’s column here, but feel free to leave any comments for Bill with this post, since he’s blog-deprived on the Post site.
