The Dreamers remain one of the best-known named bands on the sixties music circuit.
Carrying on the tradition of the guys who started it all in 1963: Freddie Garrity, Derek Quinn, Roy Crewson, Bernie Dwyer and Pete Birrel. Never to be forgotten or equalled, formerly ‘Freddie and The Dreamers’.
Changes to personnel over the past 50 years were of course inevitable but two members – Alan Mosca and Bryan Byng – remain in the band today. They have been in the band as ‘Freddie and The Dreamers’ and then ‘The Dreamers’ for over 37 years.
Along with Freddie, Alan and Bryan toured throughout Europe Australia and The Middle East and were along with Freddie as part of the British Invasion Tour of America, sharing the stage with Gerry and The Pacemakers and The Searchers appearing at Madison Square Gardens, New York and other prestige venues. TV appearances alongside Freddie include Cilla Black’s Surprise Surprise, The Noel Edmunds TV show, Australia Today, and many more.
Alan and Bryan are joined by The Temple Brothers, Steve and Colin, who in their own right are seasoned professionals having toured extensively with their Everly Brothers tribute show and Midnight Dynamos rock and roll band. With their unique harmonies and musicianship they add an extra dimension to the Dreamers, who along with the hits of Freddie and The Dreamers perform the most popular songs of the fifties rock and roll days and the great songs of the sixties.
