Dreamwalkers: Starting to Move Forward

Dreamwalkers rehearsed on Sunday afternoon, and we are beginning to integrate bass guitarist, Bart Dellarmi, into our band. He is a very gifted musician, and his style is very different from Jeff Hocker's, so we are having fun moving with the new groove. Since I've known Bart for a long time, he has suggested we include some of my original songs that he knew that weren't in the band's setlist in the past. We worked on Music Is The Ride, a song about taking my then 12 year old son to his first concert. It has an upbeat, Bo Diddley, kind of vibe. We also worked on including Suggestion By Echo, a song we had previously done, but changed the key and some of the vocals and Everything Is Changing, an anthem for our time. We began working out arrangements for covers like two of my personal favorites 4 Tops song, Reach Out I'll Be There, and Traffic's Low Spark of High Heeled Boys. Who knows what we will wind up with but we are having fun and seeing the potential goodness of the band. 

Peace,

Dr Dreamwalker
