Gregg Stewart
Gregg Stewart filled in on bass with the live band at the Dexter Lake Club when he was 13 years old in 1977, the same year "Animal House" filmed a scene at the club. He earned $33 for the 3-night gig. "The Dexter Lake Club has always occupied a very special place in my heart," Stewart wrote in a post on Facebook, "and over the years when I would pass by, I’d smile and my heart would warm seeing that old sign still lighting up the night sky." Now Stewart and his wife Shannon own the club halfway between Eugene and Oakridge on Highway 58.
