About this project

The Dixie Desperados were formed in 1976. Three cousins, Allan Lowe vocals, acoustic guitar; Gregg McMillan vocals, bass guitar; and Mike Chasteen vocals, electric guitar joined up with Jeff Sims vocals, electric guitar and Steve Nelson on drums. That lineup got back together in 2011 to play again with Jimmy Millsaps replacing Steve on drums. In September of this year, we started seriously thinking about recording a second album. Our good friend, Stan Lynch, encouraged us to move forward and said he would help us craft a good record. We plan to record here in Gainesville, and we have several new songs with hopes of putting 10 to 12 on the new project. Our first studio album was recorded and released in 2000 on our 25th anniversary, and we have all been involved in various musical and recording projects over the years since then.Thanks for your support!

Risks and challenges

In our musical recording the biggest challenge we could not foresee would be one of the members being unable to complete their part of the project. Fortunately, we know many talented musicians that would be willing to step in and help.
