Dreamwalkers Evolution  Podcast

Hello Dream-Gliders,

Playing out is always a great learning opportunity. Porchfest gave us a wonderful experience, and watching the videos (thank you, Carla Henshaw) was very enlightening. Integrating what I saw in the videos with feedback from people who attended gave me insight into the next step in Dreamwalkers evolution. So, considering this information along with conversations with the band members, I will be breaking out electric guitars to give us a bigger sound. I have always been more comfortable playing acoustic guitars, and won't abandon them completely, but as I have been taking marvelous guitar lessons from our very own guitar wizard, Tony Sheppard, and working with electric guitars, we agree it's time. 

The band is also expanding into original songs by Jeff Hocker and Tony Sheppard. I am very excited to work on these great songs and I'm sure our fans will love the new material. I continue to write and have a few new ones for the band to consider. I am also looking forward to singing with Jeff Dillon and Tony Sheppard, as we incorporate their voices into our performances. 

We are looking for places to play and worthy causes to play benefit shows for. If you have a cause you'd like us to play for please go to the contact page and let us know. If you have a venue and would be open to showcasing our band we would love to speak with you.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Porchfest Performance 

Dreamwalkers Band played Porchfest in Sarasota. Porchfest is a community celebration of music, based in the Arlington Park area of Sarasota. Despite the heat, we had a great time performing at this wonderful event. There was a good crowd and the organizers were gracious. From a personal point of view, it felt great to get out and play for people. Playing in practice is one thing, but playing out is a different deal. Like in sports, one has to get used to the speed of the game. Things happen very quickly when you are on stage and you have to get used to how fast they go. Most audience members don't know if you've made a gaffe, unless it is a big one, so one must keep on keeping on no matter what. The feedback we received was decidedly positive and I felt like we did well.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker (Richard Schulman)

Dreamwalkers Lineup: Drums: Jeff Dillon; Bass Guitar: Jeff Hocker; Lead Guitar: Tony Sheppard; Vocals and Rhythm Guitar: Dr Dreamwalker (Richard Schulman)

Porchfest Preview  Podcast

Dreamwalkers rehearsal for Porchfest went smoothly, as we are refining new arrangements for many of the songs. For now, we are moving forward as a foursome, with me, Dr Dreamwalker, doing most of the singing. We created a few spaces for lead guitar wizard, Tony Sheppard, to stretch out. When he goes for it, the notes fly of the keyboard. Guitar is blazing. A few covers have been added to the set, each with a chance for our Tone Star (Tony) to go to town with some guitar magic. The rhythm section of Jeff Dillon on drums and The Wave, Jeff Hocker, on bass guitar, seems to get tighter and more relaxed at the same moment. Sounds like a martial arts approach. I have found the more clearly I hear my voice through the monitor, the easier it is for me to concentrate and yet be relaxed into the songs. Do you sense a pattern here? We had great fun in the rehearsal, and threw a few clams, which is always a good sign, portending a great show. The idea of Porchfest, a celebration of our community in music is such a wonderful concept, and we are honored to be one of the bands chosen to play. We will be at 2267 Hillview Street from 4-5 PM, Sunday. October 8. Come out and join together with the band.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker
