The Saltgrass Band


Don Eggers

Dobro and Pedal Steel Guitar


Don Eggers started playing Dobro in the 1970’s with several bands including Bluefield Express, Bluegrass Ramblers, B.A.R.E. Pickin’, Lone Star Bluegrass Band, and Saltgrass. In 1981, Don performed live on stage at the Grand Ol’ Opry in Nashville with Saltgrass. He was honored as the Southwest Dobro Champion in Hugo Oklahoma in 1982 with Josh Graves judging. In 1984, Don was a member of Saltgrass when they were named the Southwest Band Champions in Hugo Oklahoma.

In the 1980’s, Don began playing the Pedal Steel Guitar and fine-tuned his country music skills with bands including Spur 28, Silver Dollar, Sundance and Osage. He enjoyed playing in many dance halls, bars and private parties in the Houston area with these bands.

After graduating from the University of Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, Don and his wife, Dorothy, made their home in Pasadena, Texas, where they raised six children. Don furthered his education with a master’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Houston. He worked in microwave and antenna design and development at NASA, from which he is now retired.

Now enjoying the retired life, a few rounds of golf each week, movies with the wife, 16 grandkids and 2 great-grandchildren, Don has returned to his grassroots love for bluegrass music.
