Originally formed nearly a decade ago, Dream Posse has found fresh inspiration and edginess, with a new set list featuring vintage rock, acoustic, and R&B styles that evoke nostalgia, with memorable all time favorites, highlighted with their own original songs. The band delivers a fiery brand of country rockin’, eclectic music, with dual female vocals, and huge harmonies. Backed by a stage full of instruments that include acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, violin, and a driving bass and drums, Dream Posse can reach out and draw you in, entertaining you deep into your soul.

The six players have all been playing locally, for many years. Holding down the bottom are Alan and Kelly, a rhythm section that plays with several local bands, including The Buzztones, and The Ken Cooper Band. Our most recent member, Don, also performs with Alan in Mersey Beach along with The Rubinoo’s, Al Chan. They are rock solid, and with Don’s many keyboard tones and textures, the band’s sound is embellished beautifully. Dell is a multi-talented guitar player/producer, originally from the legendary, local band Rock Island, and has played with Paul Rogers, and the late Ronnie Montrose among others. Katy, our violinist/fiddle player is not only extremely gifted on her instrument, but has a powerful, rockin' vocal style. Kiki enjoys singing, pop, blues, R&B, and rock, with a versatile style, and dynamic stage presence. While being extremely complementary vocally, both women are seasoned professionals that have fronted local bands, and backed up and recorded with known acts, such as Eddie Money, and members of The Steve Miller Band and Journey. They are the focal point of the group, belting out tasty dual vocal leads, one after another.

In this band, each of us are grateful to spread our wings, writing and playing music that is close to our hearts, while entertaining our audiences if they want to dance, or just listen. With our newly expanded song list, we feel that we are just perfect for your event.

Dream Posse has been well received at city festivals and concerts in Contra Costa and Alameda Counties, and on the Peninsula. They’ve played wineries, weddings, fundraisers, and are versatile enough to be an opening act for well-known groups such as “It’s A Beautiful Day” at Slim’s, and various private events.


“It’s so refreshing to hear a band that doesn’t rely totally on top 40 cover tunes. Dream Posse plays an eclectic mix that you don’t hear too often. It’s great if you want to get up and dance or just kick back with a glass of wine and enjoy some cool tunes.”
