Dreamwalkers Band's rehearsal, Sunday evening, brought in a fresh voice and new musical ears, as we were joined by our friend, Joni Adno. Joni shared her gorgeous voice, keyboard skill, and musical ideas with the band. The process of bringing someone new to an established group can be difficult, however, once we overcame the initial jitters, it was very productive and a lot of fun. Dreamwalkers Band is a very flexible and open group, incorporating new ideas fluidly and rapidly. The band played some of our original songs and covers, but also played some songs emerging from the new energy. The rhythm section, Jeff Dillon on drums and Jeff Hocker on bass provided a solid and creative foundation for the songs. Joni and Tony Sheppard have been in several different bands together and already have a simpatico in their playing. Joni suggested some key changes to fit my voice, which I thought were very positive and we tried out a few new arrangements for songs. Changes are certainly in store for us, as I brought out my Rickenbacker 12 string guitar, to add a rock and roll element to some of the songs. This is an exciting time to be a Dreamwalker.
