Charlotte, North Carolina (November 30, 2013)  Dexter and Sara Romweber, The Dex Romweber Duo, are Carolina icons in the roots rock community. Dex was gained recognition with the FlatDuo Jets. Dex of 2013 is quite comfortable with the Dex Romweber Duo featuring his sister Sara on drums.  Besides the stripped down feel of a Sears Silvertone , Randall amp and a set of drums, the duo helps Sara and Dex maintain a lower overhead.  Dex uses no pedals or effects. His amp is as cheap as his guitar. The high end treatments, his voice and legendary playing style. Holding it together is Sara’s driving force as a percussionist.

Many in attendance had enjoyed Dex several times and shouted out requests.  Dex seemed to follow a setlist but I feel he often went with the flow. He mixed surf, rockabilly and ballads with ease.   My only wish was that they would have been able to play longer, not that their set was too short, rather I wanted more…

Dex and Sara have a new record coming out soon, which is already a must have.
