DIXON, CA (MPG) - Live music from More on the Floor, a long-time, popular local rock band will be part of the fanfare re-branding celebration for the new Dixon Wings N Things that was formerly BurgerIM in the Walmart Shopping Plaza.
There will also be snacks, beverages, raffle prizes and even a wing-eating contest. The fun is set for this Friday, August 5 from 5 to 9 pm.
Diane Long and sons are doing their best to make sure everyone in Dixon knows they are still open. Long called Eric Christiansen who has also re-branded the band from 'Four on the Floor' originating in 2010 to 'More on the Floor' which is made up of surviving members from the original band from Davis that was actually formed in 1978. The group played at dozens of events over the years in Dixon and elsewhere.
The new band members are Mark Youngs, original Lead Guitarist and Eric Christiansen, original Rhythm Guitar Player and Vocalist plus new members Kris Ayala from Dixon on the Drums and Richard Urbino Bass Guitar Player [of the bands Cold Shot and According to Bazooka] from Davis. The band plays cover tunes ranging from Country to Rock and Roll. They will play from 6 to 9 p.m.
After the Grand Opening, Long says the restaurant will open back to its regular hours of Wednesday to Sunday from noon to 8 p.m.
"We will re-open with our new concept and some of your old favorites will remain such as Spanish Beef, Lamb, Angus Beef and Cowboy," she posted on social media along with asking patrons to be flexible. "You will see some of the other items come off the menu as we run out and simplify the menu until we can get through this post-pandemic time. There will be some management changes as well that will bring the best service and food to our customers," she explained.
Learning the support of this small town who are rallying behind the family, she thanked Dixon.
"I'm so excited about the journey with Dixon," she said. The restaurant is located at 115 East Dorset, Suite E in the Walmart Shopping Center. For more information, call (707) 693-6727.
