Dreamwalkers Band: Another Thought From Yesterday's Gig  

Hey Dreamwalkers,

Watching people respond to us yesterday at Hurricane Mike's, it occurs to me that what we really need to do is play out. We get better every time.


The last one means "Way to F*cking Go!. Thank you Marty, Local 7433, and Hurricane Mike's. 

The good news is people really enjoy us. The not so good news is we are having to move the album release party due to a work conflict from one of the band members. We will get it set up ASAP. Time to move forward. 

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers Band: Benefit Toys For Tots at Hurricane Mike’s   

Hello to all my Dreamwalkers out there.

The band had a great time playing for the Toys For Tots benefit at Hurricane Mike’s in Sarasota on Saturday. The crowd was lively and energized and we played some of our favorite songs in two one hour sets.

The crowd seems to respond both to our original songs and the cover songs that we love. I had a blast playing our Tom Petty medley, especially the duo with Debbie Stern when we played “Stop Dragging My Heart Around.“ Debbie‘s version of “Wild Horses,“ was just superb. People seemed to really respond to my original song, “Diamond Filled Bouquet,“ maybe because a lot of people have ADD. Debbie’s “Good to See You, Gone,” is always a crowdpleaser because so many people who have been divorced can relate.

Tony Sheppard played some spectacular lead guitar on “Comfortably Numb” and "The Redemption." The rhythm section of David Dolnick on drums and Dave Ross on bass guitar gave us a solid foundation all afternoon. They also provided great singing both lead and adding harmonies.

We thank Local 7433 for putting the Toys for Tots gig together and Hurricane Mike's for providing the venue.

Peace,

This is our first Sarasota gig in a while and we plan on having a lot of fun with our music.

Dreamwalkers Band: New Material, Moving Forward  

Greetings to all my Dreamwalkers out there,

In order to keep things fresh and moving forward, we like to introduce new material. Last night in our rehearsal we worked on a number of new things, and the response was exhilarating. 

We put together a really powerful medley of Tom Petty tunes. Imagine my joy at being able to sing some of my favorite songs with this great band backing me up. Dave Dolnick brought in a song by William DeVaughn "Be Thankful For What You Got," and the band ate it up like it was candy. What a great vibe. We worked on two songs for Debbie, her brilliant original tune, "Only You," and the Carole King classic, "I Feel The Earth Move." Finally we worked on a tune Tony Sheppard and I wrote called, "Time To Let Your Sun Shine."

It's a thrill to play with such great people.

Peace,

Dreamwalkers Band: Vocals from Master Teacher Debbie Stern  

Greetings to all my Dreamwalkers out there,

Today is my birthday and on this day, I feel so much gratitude for all the treasures I have in my life. One of those treasures is this wonderful Dreamwalkers Band and our vocal director, Debbie Stern. As some of you know, Debbie has vast experience in teaching singing and being a singer in many different venues. She was a backup singer for Loretta Lynn for two years, but now she is in the spotlight with us.

We are working very hard to make the vocals for Dreamwalkers Band the best and we have some great voices. Debbie is just the best, but to have a drummer and bass player who can sing is quite a blessing. Makes it possible to have three part harmony. I don't know if you've ever experienced three part harmony, but when it's right and you are in the middle of it, it's almost like a physical healing, a beautiful event.

So, we met to perfect our harmonies and it's quite a challenge. There is a tendency to want to sing the other person's part, so you have to learn your own part as if it was the melody. Then you have to blend with the lead, sort of become that person, sing like them but in a different note. You can't overpower the lead. It's quite a challenge but we all were working really hard at it, and I certain it will bear fruit.

Debbie has taught me so much about singing. I didn't know what I didn't know. If you are interested in learning how to sing, she is a great teacher. If you would like to take lessons, let us know through the contact page and I will facilitate it. 

Peace,

Dreamwalkers: Myakka Moonlighters. . . What A Great Evening  

Hello to all my Dreamwalkers out there,

The band finally played out and once again, Myakka Moonlighters was very kind to us. Playing as the Sun set and an amazing full Moon came up was very inspiring. The band had a wonderful time.

The highlight of the show, for me, was after we played Diamond Filled Bouquet, a song about my own issues with Attention Deficit (Different?) a woman came up to us and told us how much hearing the song meant to her. Her grandson struggles with the same issue and she said the song really helped her and she thanked us.

It's always fun singing with Debbie Stern. Her originals, Good To See You, Gone, Don't Give Me A Second Thought, Tricks On Me, I Think I Think Too Much, Dancing With The Man In The Moon, How I Love To Love You Lord, and Don't Talk Behind My Back were incredible and her version of Wild Horses was just off the chain great. I had great fun singing Stop Dragging My Heart Around in a duet with her. 

Dave Ross did a great job singing Deep Elem Blues and making it special for the Myakka audience. He also sang Space Oddity and did a wonderful job with Shape I'm In.

Tony Sheppard was his usual stellar self on lead guitar. I especially liked what he did with his lead on Music Is The Ride. 

David Dolnick on drums was just the best. He was in the pocket all night and became the glue that kept us together. He also sang on Wicked Game and I Know You Rider.

I just had the most fun I've ever had playing music. The band keeps moving forward. We are blessed to have Patrick Russini running sound for us and Jesse Lipman being more than just an ordinary roadie. Thanks so much for Patrick and Jesse.

What's next? We plan on playing out again soon and there's even talk (gasp!) of a third album. Will keep you posted and can't wait to play again. So much fun!

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker


 

Dreamwalkers: Join Together With The Band  

Hey Dreamwalkers,

In a time of great instability and uncertainty what can we count on? Music. Personally, I find the vibrations of music to be a great healer. Music never lets me down. When the band plays and I'm in the middle of the sound it's really incredible.

So, I want to share the sounds with you. Come on out to Myakka Moonlighters on Satuday, March 19 6-9 PM and hear our wonderful band. We've just finished our second album, "Music Is The Ride," and we will be playing many of those new songs for you. 

31755 SR 70 E., Myakka City, FL 34251-4303

Peace,

Dreamwalkers Myakka Moonlighters March 19  

Hello Dreamwalkers out there,

So much going on in the world. How do we cope? Music. I saw the Canadian Truckers playing music and dancing during their protest. Bravo. We are working hard to put our performance together. There is a flow in my head about how the songs might go. How many originals and covers? How to keep everything moving outdoors on a beautiful night? 

We know this venue and it's been very kind to us twice, so please join us. For people who have already seen us, there will be some new songs from Debbie Stern and myself, and some new cover tunes to feature Dave Ross and David Dolnick. 








 

Put March 19 in your calendar. It's going to be a memorable evening. Bring a lawn chair and cooler and relax amidst our own "Dreamstock."

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker
