Barry was next to leave and we got Matt Novak
I don't have a group shot of Matt, so I had to use this live shot.
Don left us next,
and in came Barry aka The Bear
The original Dixie Wrecked band
Don Deaugustine, MIck Montemurro,
Troy Thornton and Van Roper.
( I do need to mention Wayne Thornton )
When Mat Banke called it a day, veteran Drummer Pat Sharkey
stepped in for a while.
By the time Matt Novak left us,
Mat Banke was ready for his turn.
(Mat Banke would end up in this band 3 different times, including the final line up)
Nick moved on, and in came
long time member, Dave Alvey aka Uncle Dave
Van Roper went to Alaska and Dons son Nick Deaugustine (right) stepped in.
This line up only played 2 shows

WELL, AFTER 15 YEARS, 14 MEMBERS AND 718 SHOWS, THAT'S 2872 SETS OF MUSIC,
WE HAVE DECIDED TO DISBAND AND RETIRE THE DIXIE WRECKED NAME.
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL THE FANS WE HAVE GOTTEN TO KNOW OVER THE YEARS.
I HAVE POSTED PICTURES OF ALL THE DIFFERENT LINEUPS SINCE THIS TRAIN STARTED ROLLING.
I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO THANK EVERY MEMBER WHO'S PLAYED IN THIS BAND.
NO MATTER WHO WAS IN THE LINE UP, WE ALWAYS HAD A BLAST,
WE ALSO HAD WHAT APPEARED TO BE A ( DYNAMITE SOUND ).

After Pat Sharkey said his goodbyes, (Mat Banke came back for a while)
and then, we were lucky to find the very talented Mr Dan Rosanbalm
Last but not least, after Todd Hines left
in walked Mr Roger Jaime.
This is the final line up of The Dixie Wrecked Band.
in it from the beginning Troy Thornton and Mick Montemurro
and long time member Mat Banke, and Roger Jaime.
When Dave Alvey and Dan RosanBalm rode off into the sunset.
Mat Banke returned for his 3rd time with Todd Hines
for Todd, Mat and Troy, it was a reunion of sorts.
