Dixie Midnight Runners

Dixie Midnight Runners

The Dixie Midnight Runners, endearingly referred to as DMR, is one of the most colorful of all the ensembles at Winona State University. DMR is an eight-piece combo consisting of trumpet, soprano sax/clarinet, tenor sax, trombone, banjo/guitar, piano/melodica, bass/tuba and drums. They specialize in the traditional Dixieland style made famous in New Orleans and Chicago in the 1920's, and recently have added some of the repertoire of modern New Orleans groups like the Rebirth and Dirty Dozen Brass Bands.
