About the Band
Dream and the Dreamer has been voted Best Band in Nevada County five times since 2011! Between their accupella intros and their big time Rock & Roll endings there is a plethora of musical notes to take in. The band may start out with their acoustic accoutrements but sooner or later they will give way to the electrifying guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and percussion the band uses to emulate the songs you know and love. Whether it's Country, Blues, Funk or Rock & Roll, you'll sing along, you'll dance... and if you haven't heard the song before, it's an original with a Latin groove, Reggae beat or R&B feel so infectious you'll be singing and dancing along before it's over!
"They're an amazing band with incredible harmonies!"

As a kid, Brian was trained in classical piano. But he quickly decided that what he really wanted was to play Rock & Roll! As a member of various club bands in the 80's, he played the famous Troubadour in L.A. among other venues. He loves to get a crowd dancing!

Jeff picked up his first guitar at the age of 10, took some lessons and was off giggin! He picked up a bass at 16 for a 50’s & 60’s Rock band, and from there it was on to Classic Rock and Blues bands in Santa Cruz (where he's from). He retired from FedEx several years ago and now music is his full time job, which he loves!
