About
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, the vocal harmonies will knock your socks off, and the show is a lot of fun! The bandmembers have the experience to please any audience, from traditionalists, to hipsters, to corporate employee gatherings. We have played festivals, clubs, weddings, wineries, fairs, grocery store openings, concerts, and summer park gigs. We've played corporate events for the Mayo Clinic, Incertec, and Payscale Inc., and received very nice reviews you can read for yourself. 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. King Wilkie's Dream released a CD in September of 2018, and was featured as the cover story in Minnesota Bluegrass Magazine in June of 2019. We are veterans of the bluegrass music scene in the Midwest, and committed to bringing a well-rehearsed, fun, musical experience to our audience. Our repertoire is varied, and ever-growing, and we have something for everyone!

We hope to see you soon!

These guys were fantastic. They were willing to learn a new song for our first dance and totally knocked it out of the park. Everyone was dancing and having a great time, and I wouldn't have chosen anyone else to help us celebrate our big day. They were flexible and relaxed and I would definitely book them again (but hopefully not for another of my weddings).

Our annual church festival looked quite different this year. But as in years past the music was top notch. Upon hearing that our schedule would look different, King Wilkies band was so understanding and accommodating. They played beautifully and their music was enjoyed by all that were in person and on-line. As soon as we set our date; we would like to book them for next year!

it was a cold day that ended in rain. Very accommodating band members who showed up on time and played through it all. And played well. We would highly recommend them.
