Dreamwalkers Music Is The Ride first review posted. . .   

Hey Dreamwalkers,

The first review of our Music Is The Ride album has been posted in the "Reviews for Music Is The Ride" section of the site. If you get the album, or hear it on the website and wish to review it, let us know in the "Contact" section and I'll post it. 

Thanks to Joe R. of Sarasota for such a positive review.  Here is part of it. . . "I really am enjoying your songs. The lyrics are remarkable and very inspiring. Great sound! Feels like I'm at a concert. Kudos to the engineer and sound people, nailed it. The vocals are well done as well as the harmony."

We will definitely be playing out on March 19, but hope to see everyone before then.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers Band Welcomes Drummer David Dolnick  

Hello to all my Dreamwalkers out there,

Today was a good day for the band. We welcome drummer, David Dolnick to the Dreamwalkers Band. David, who did a guest gig on the song Crazy Movie on our first album has officially joined us. We have rehearsed with him twice and he is a big part of our band's transformation.

David's drumming is precise, lyrical, and intuitive and he seems to "get" us. We are making great music and having fun together. He also sings and we have started to arrange and rehearse songs with him in the lead. He will be involved in singing harmony as well. This is an exciting time for the band, and with a few more rehearsals to integrate David into the band, we will have our long awaited album release party.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers Band: New Energy. . . New Life  

Hey Dreamwalkers out there. . . 

It's been quite a few days in the life of our band. First, after all this time, we got our album, and it's really terrific. But we still needed a groove and an old friend appeared, David Dolnick sat in on drums with us during Monday's rehearsal and he was just fantastic. David was on our first album doing some impressive drumming on the song Crazy Movie.


The band had been like a car whose transmission didn't work right and we could kind of get around town but couldn't get on the freeway. As soon as he began to hit the skins, the transmission worked better than ever and we were flying. We had such fun and you could hear the spark and positivity in our singing and banter. A great weight had been lifted. Music truly is the Ride. We look forward to playing out again soon. 

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers: Happy New Year. . . Album Has Arrived  

Happy 2022 to all my Dreamwalkers out there,

We made it! Got through 2021 alive and on the very last day, December 31, 2021, our Music Is The Ride album arrived. You can check out the unboxing in the video section. 

After 19 months, a marathon sometimes run as a sprint, sometimes as a crawl, we have our album and it sounds great. As this is posted on the first day of 2022, lets be positive and grateful. I am immensely proud of what our band and support people have accomplished. Thank you to my wonderful band: Tony Sheppard, Dave Ross, and Debbie Stern with help from Jeff Hocker and Patrick Russini. Much gratitude to Executive Producer Patrick Russini at Alpha Ear Studio. Appreciation to Kali Dass for photography and Daniel Schulman of Schulman Media for art direction.

We are about to embark on a new chapter for the band. I am excited and happy.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers: New Year is upon us. . .   

Greetings to all our Dreamwalkers out there. . .

2021 is gratefully coming to a close and we are still looking forward to receiving the "Music Is The Ride" album from the printer. The band is still in process of reconfiguring. Rehearsal on Monday focused on vocal harmonies in two new cover songs, "Runaway" the old Del Shannon song which was covered by Bonnie Riatt, and will be brilliantly covered by Debbie Stern, and "Let It Rain" the great Eric Clapton song, which will feature Tony Sheppard on lead guitar. Dave Ross started singing Jethro Tull's "Locomotive Breath" and we will attempt to arrange it (although we don't have a flute in the band) it was still fun. Then we tried out some interesting open tunings to play Crosby, Stills, and Nash songs.

I saw an interview with Graham Nash who echoed some thoughts Debbie Stern told me years ago about singing harmony. He said, "When I sing harmony, I have to become the other person and sing the notes like they sing it." It was almost word for word what Debbie had come up with independently, years ago. She is a master of her craft and an amazing voice teacher. 

We had fun working on the covers, but our core intent as a band is to play original songs and both Debbie and I have several new ones to share. Writing and playing personal material is a bit like potato chips in that once you get the taste you want more. We are getting set to do some open mics at local venues while we still search for a drummer.

Peace,

Dr. Dreamwalker

Merry Psychedelic Christmas from Dreamwalkers   

We thought we might have the new album as a Christmas present, but I guess we were bad boys and girls so we have to wait. The proverbial fingers are crossed that they arrive before the New Year. In any event, Christmas is a time for giving and re-birth. We hope you all have a sweet day and spend a little time in gratitude for all the gifts of life we might take for granted. We also are hoping you connect with friends and family in a positive spirit of love rather than the fear that has been permeating our land. The separation that seems to plague us as a nation is an illusion. 

Peace,

Tony, Debbie, Dave and Doc

P.S. Dontcha love those glasses? Relics from World War II, thank you Kali Dass.

Music Truly IS The Ride. . . album sent to Printer. . .   


The long journey of making "Music Is The Ride" is at the last step. Everything has been double checked, i's dotted and t's crossed. The album was sent to the printer today. I listened to it one last time to make sure there were no glitches (I knew there wouldn't be) and now we wait. 

We started in May 2020, just after the beginning of the pandemic and while I thought we would finish before the pandemic did, I never thought either would still be cooking on December 1, 2021. We moved in time through uncertainty, delta, omicron, George Floyd, a disputed election, two Stanley Cups for our beloved Bolts, a Super Bowl for the Bucs, censorship, mask and vaxx mandates, a pushback, woke, wake, sheep, vaxx, anti-vaxx, a run on toilet paper, death of friends, new relationships flourishing, a country split in half among other things. We saw Florida become a place where radicals like us could flourish (who could have figured that one). There were unforeseen problems, delays, disease, gremlins, disagreements, sweetness, harmony, flow, genius, and finally. . . creation manifesting in real time.

I am truly proud to be part of this wonderful group of musicians and even better people. Thank You Tony Sheppard, Debbie Stern, Dave Ross, Jeff Hocker and Patrick Russini. Appreciation to Kali Dass for photography and Daniel Schulman of Schulman Media for graphic design.

Peace. . . Music Truly IS The Ride.

Dreamwalkers: Things Change 

The first song on our new album, Music Is The Ride, is "Everything Is Changing." Well, not everything, but our drummer resigned from the band due to creative differences. The band was a bit in shock at first but we got together for a rehearsal at Debbie Stern's music studio and had a great time. The focus was more on vocal harmonies and a dealing with a different dynamic. Music IS the ride. The joy in playing our music wiped away the personal loss and we sounded terrific. Debbie's vocals are sparking, Tony is an absolute wonder at lead guitar, Dave is solid on bass, and I could actually hear my voice in the mix so I was able to hit my harmonies. We are all looking forward to the next chapter in the band's evolution. 

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers: Music Is The Ride--Album Cover 

Apologies for everyone waiting for the album to be completed. We ran into a few glitches but wanted to get things right. We are a dot or two away from it and I promise will have it very soon. I love the cover. I took the photo in London, England in 2017. The design was a collaboration with Kali Dass. Daniel Schulman of Schulman Media put it together.
