Your Update from The D&P Hi there MELEE 12
After a bit of a lay-off due to snow and a decision to give Summer a miss due to football and the heatwave, we are happy to announce the melee will return in March on the second weekend the 8th, 9th & 10th and will feature an array of acts most familiar to regular gig goers at the D&P!

📷THE DELTA ECHOES; SUNDAY MARCH 3RD 5.30PM Local Country tinged covers combo make a welcomed visit after a good year away from the D&P, live and very local! PAT REEDY; SUNDAY MARCH 10TH 5.30PM Pat Reedy has inspired music from folks like The Deslondes from New Orleans, and Luke Bell who once told Saving Country Music, “He pulled through in an ’85 Datsun diesel pickup truck with a homeless painter and a half wolf dog. It was just a picture of a different part of the earth.”
Reedy was able to keep his stuff together and his head on straight just enough to release a couple of homespun records, including his 2016 affair with his backing band The Longtime Goners called Highway Bound, and if you listen to his music, it’s like you’re hearing the template other artists have adopted from Reedy’s modes as the foundation for their own sound and song writing approach.
The last couple of years Reedy has spent in Nashville, and the New Orleans-influenced country of his previous efforts with accordion accompaniments gives way to straightforward honky tonk sound of his latest record That’s All There Is. To be released on Muddy Roots Records April 6th, it was cut between construction jobs, and includes songs like “Conversation with Jesus” inspired by Ray Wylie Hubbard’s “Conversation with the Devil,” and “Lucky I’m Alive” about a night in Tucson, AZ where Reedy was almost caught by Border Patrol hopping a train to New Orleans.
