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!

We hired King Wilkie's Dream for an outdoor party at our home. They exceeding our every expectation. Great communication in lead up to the event. The music was on point. Their musicians were talented no doubt - incredible blend of bluegrass, country, and folk. They engaged perfectly with our guests ; finding the right places amongst the crowd to play their acoustic set. They brought joy to everyone through their wonderful music and elevated this party to a whole new level. I can't wait to find an opportunity to hire them again!

Choosing a music band through the website was my first experience, so I was wondering whether they will be good or not for church service. The band leader was communicating very well with me and gave me a quick response as well. They seemed very well prepared, the results were good, and the congregation was satisfied with them. Thank you for King Wilkie's Dream!! and I am considering them to invite for the next event!! Julie
