Dreamwalkers Band Life 

Hello my friends. Band life is unpredictable. We are right at the edge of performing and all of a sudden we need a new bass player. Tonight, bass guitar player, Dave Ross showed up and his vibe was right, he played bass well even on songs he hardly knew, suggested a song and sang it, all in all a very satisfying rehearsal. We have a vision of a band. Everyone seems to be on board with the vision. We are not a typical bar band, but we won't be dull. Really cool original songs, harmonies, and great musicianship. Tony was really on tonight. He plays with an amazing combination of grit and tenderness. We are a little delayed as Dave gets up to speed, we have to take new pictures, but we are moving forward again, and I'm happy to say we'll be out there soon.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers Welcome Drummer Daniel Polyak 

Dreamwalkers Band is happy to announce the addition of drummer Daniel Polyak to our group. Daniel has played with nationally known luminaries such as Wanda Jackson and Wayne Cochrane, and is well known in the Sarasota area. He is a very accomplished drummer, but more importantly, he is a great guy who really got our vibe almost immediately. We love playing with him and feel very blessed he decided to join us.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Cover Songs Are Fun To Play 

Dreamwalkers rehearsed Thursday evening, and we focused on covers. Bart Dellarmi is taking more of a leadership role in crafting the sound, of which I am grateful. He hears things I don't and offers creative ideas about structuring the songs. Tony Sheppard, as always, is wonderful on lead guitar. So we had a lot of fun playing covers. The band was inspired by the recent film "Echo In the Canyon," about Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles during the mid to late 60s, and wants to incorporate that kind of vibe. I can feel the cohesiveness of our group growing. 

Sadly, Patrick Russini announced he is leaving the band. He's a very busy guy and did not have the time to devote to us. Too bad, we love him as a person, and have watched him develop musically over the time he has been with us. I'll be speaking with a potential replacement this weekend.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers Road Trip 

Dreamwalkers took a road trip to the Hideaway café in Saint Petersburg to see our friend Shaun Hopper and his band the sun kings. They were just fantastic and well we enjoyed the music we also took notes about things that we want to improve in our own performances. Shaun is a world class guitarist and has worthy partners in Paul Matthew Quin, Jay Klein, and Chris Barbosa. Well they were terrific, but it also let us know that we are pretty good too and with some strong rehearsal we can get up to speed and give a great show.

 

1969 again 50 years Later: Summer Sounds with Guitar Wizard, Tony Sheppard 

Hey Dreamwalkers Friends and Family,

Summertime, band life in Florida. . . people are coming and going, it's a bit difficult to get strong rehearsal time with the entire band, So, we've been getting together when we can with whomever is around and hopefully in a few weeks, everyone will be ready to dive in again. Today, I had the opportunity to spend several hours with Tony Sheppard, trying out a few guitars and working on different sounds for different songs. Tony' has been using a 12 string electric Fender with his other band, Big Night Out and is getting very acclimated to the different sound. The key guitars today were the 12 string Rickenbackers, favored by people like George Harrison, Roger McGuinn of the Byrds and Tom Petty. The Rics are a challenge because the neck is smaller than on a standard guitar, so it takes a bit of getting used to and a different technique to make them ring. . . and ring they do. The Rickenbacker chime is famous on songs from the Beatles, Byrds, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. We worked on using them for covers like "Boys of Summer," "Wooden Ships," and "Take It Easy." We also experimented with "Suite, Judy Blue Eyes," from Crosby, Stills, and Nash and the Youngbloods "Get Together.". These songs are enormous fun to play and people will love them. Tony is a genius not just at playing, but at squeezing incredible tones out of the instruments using pedals and effects on the amp. The sounds I heard were magic and I'm sure we're going to bring them out by the end of summer. Lots of harmonies, chimey, beautiful guitars, great rhythm and bass. Sounds like the 1969 again fifty years later. Dreamwalkers. . . the dream is manifesting.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

 

Dreamwalkers: New Material 

Dreamwalkers rehearsal brought in new original songs by Debbie Stern. She sang "Something 'Bout That Boy," and "Divorce Song". The band dug the songs and we will be working out arrangements as we move forward. We also worked on one of my original songs, "Two Insomnias," which the band had done in the past, but we put a new spin on it. The solos are going to be split between Tony and Debbie on keyboards. Bart Dellarmi on bass and Pat Russini on drums are really starting to synch together. Tony Sheppard is playing as well as I've ever heard him. We had fun and are looking to playing out in the next month or so. I love what's happening in our process.

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker

Dreamwalkers Album Review. . .  

Marc Starke is a man whose opinion I respect, a person who is well versed in music, has high integrity, and calls it as he sees it. We have never met in person, so I did not know what to expect when I asked him to review our album, except honesty.

Dreamwalkers, with brilliant original music lead by co-founder, guitarist, writer Richard Schulman (Dr Dreamwalker) , with an equally immensely talented band consisting of co-founder Jeff Hocker, Tony Sheppard, Culynn Murdock, Debbie Stern and Pat Russini, puts out music that is beautifully inspiring and spiritually uplifting. The lyrics, vocals, harmonies, and instrumentation are what brings you there. The originality of the music still conveys reminders of David Gilmour, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Pete Townshend, and a few others who transcended the 1960's. With the Dreamwalkers, the music transcends the sound and message as better as ever in a time when it's needed more than ever! - Marc Starcke, Pembroke Pines, FL.
