A Little Bit About Our Bands:
Dreamland Band & Wildflower Station – Country, Blues and Soul. They play Classic Rock from the 50’s,60’s,70’s, & 80’s, and even some current rock thrown in for good measure. Chuck Berry to The Youngbloods, to Ray LaMontangue. Toss in some great Country, we’re talking Johnnie and Dolly, and a little bit of Soul Music as well and you have Dreamland… and a lot of fun.
Wildflower Station is a trio, playing the best of what was called the “Psychedelic 60’s & 70’s” – a mixture of Classic Rock, Americana, Country & Folk, done in their own special style, with a special emphasis on harmonies. We play great music like The Beatles, Little Big Town, Neil Young, CSN&Y.
