A big noise. A new sound.

"Soulful, bluesy, rootsy are only a few adjectives that apply to this group. Fun and entertaining. Don't miss this group!" -Doug Lohman, Armadillo Sound and Design

Although our good looks may deceive (at least we’d like to think so), there are many musical experiences packed into the members’ varied, and sometimes long, musical histories.  


"King Wilkie's Dream is a talented bluegrass band that has a wonderful energy and unique ability to engage the crowd"


Bluegrass, blues, swing, Americana, country, tin pan alley, old time, and just a little pop are all represented in the music that you may hear from KWD.  To find out how that all fits together, we invite you to check out some of the video on this website.  That is the best way to find out who King Wilkie’s Dream really is, or, better yet, come see a show.  


"They sound great, whether they're doing bluegrass or pop country or even a gospel song. That versatility in their repertoire makes them a group fun to listen to for a whole show."


King Wilkie’s Dream (KWD) does not worry about achieving a particular level of drive or meandering in the wilderness of rhythm and vibe.  The band sets out to stretch musically and creatively, while entertaining in a way that transcends generations and connects with audiences.  

Whether it is an original song, a well-worn traditional number, or something from outside the genre of bluegrass, the tune receives the same attention to detail, resulting in the band’s New Sound, Big Noise.
