About Sawyer's Dream
Minneapolis based Sawyer’s Dream is an all-original band with amazing 4-part vocal harmonies. The name “Sawyer’s Dream” emanates from the book The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, where in the 18th Chapter “Tom’s Dream,” the boy’s dream was to go home to be with his family. Laden with the outdoors, adventure and family, Mark Twain’s writings really resonated with the band. These inspirations combined with vocal harmonies similar to those of groups such as the Mamas & the Papas, ABBA and Bread, create a unique cross-blending of Americana, Folk, Soul, Pop and Rock. These genres formulate into an adventurous and whimsical music creation, offering the listener a modern take on the classic rock of the ’60s and ’70s. Sawyer’s Dream includes visual and imaginative lyrical masterpieces, all original material focusing on themes of love, life, dreams, the natural, and the supernatural formatted for an audience of all ages. Lyrically, the songs will take you back to simpler times, a time of dreams, nature and human kindness. Comprised of complex instrumental arrangements and intricate four-part harmonies, this daydream trip is an echo of the past and a glimmer of hope for the new day.

We play songs from the '60s through the early 2000s, the kind of songs that make you turn around on your bar stool with a smile on your face.

August 11 - movie in the park - Ferris Bueller's day off | Huset Park west | 8:30 pm
In this 1986 comedy classic, Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) has an uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it.

There is an upcoming tournament between the three major schools of magic, with one participant selected from each school by the Goblet of Fire. When Harry's name is drawn, even though he is not eligible and is a fourth player, he must compete in the dangerous contest.
