ABOUT THE BANDS
Dreamland Band has been described as “a little country, a little soul, a whole lot of rock & roll!” They play classic rock from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s, as well as some current rock thrown in for good measure -- from Chuck Berry to The Youngbloods, to Ray LaMontangue, to Johnnie and Dolly.
Wildflower Station is a trio, playing the best of what was called the “Psychedelic 60s and 70s” - a mixture of classic rock, Americana, country and folk, done in their own special style with a special emphasis on harmonies. The band plays selections from The Beatles, Little Big Town, Neil Young and CSN&Y.
