King Wilkie's Dream is a four-piece, acoustic group from the Twin Cities. Made up of fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and upright bass, the music is a mix of bluegrass, classic country, original numbers, and a bit of pop. The music is good, the arrangements are fresh and the vocal harmonies will knock your socks off. The bandmembers have the experience to please any audience, from corporate events, to weddings, to county fairs and other civic events. We have played festivals, clubs, weddings, wineries, fairs, grocery store openings, concerts, summer park gigs, and corporate events. Whether we are the main event, or background music, your guests will be impressed and have fun with King Wilkie's Dream!
Some of our band members have toured the world, and our guitar player, John Niemann, spent several years touring with both the All Star Shoe Band on the Prairie Home Companion Show, and Peter Ostroushko and the Mando Boys. We are veterans of the bluegrass music scene in the Midwest, and committed to bringing a well-rehearsed, mature musical experience to our audience. Our repertoire is varied, and ever-growing, and we have something for everyone.
We hope to see you soon!
