Reviews / Quotes

KBEK 95.5 FM and SUPER 70’s on Saturday Night with HollyWood have been playing Sawyer’s Dream’s music for over a year now and they have taken the stage, performing live in our Wiese Auditorium twice – most recently to a sold out crowd! We are huge fans. Why? Sawyer’s Dream has a sound reminiscent of the 70’s, but with a fresh new twist that is undeniably “their” sound. Strong vocals and beautiful harmonies accompanied by incredibly talented musicians and brilliant song-writing make for an enjoyable and entertaining evening of music! Their friendship and admiration for each other off-stage transfers on-stage and it is palpable – they know how to bring out the best in each other. Clean show, catchy tunes, truly amazing guitar riffs and a beat that dares your body to try and sit still. Highly recommend!”

Love this band! The perfect mix of 70’s nostalgia mixed with state-of-the-art production and contemporary lyrical sensibility.
