We invite you to visit these “friends of R&SRNR” and/or helpful music information links:
Be sure to catch the Dreamwalkers Band whenever you are in the Greater Sarasota/Bradenton/Tampa/Clearwater/Venice, Florida area. Dr Dreamwalker (Richard Schulman) and Jeff Hocker (The Wave) began playing together years ago in local jams. Wanting to have expression of original material, they founded Dreamwalkers band in 2014. Jeff's wife, Lynn Hocker joined them along with flute player Keith Coker. Percussion was supplied by a digital drummer they lovingly called Jerome. Keith left the band in 2015. Lynn sang with them until August, 2017. Drummer Jeff Dillon replaced Jerome and joined Dreamwalkers in April, 2016. Lead Guitar player Tony Sheppard became a Dreamwalker in January, 2017. The songs are inspired by their increasing awareness of mortality, a wish for a higher perspective on life, a longing for love, and events in the world that have touched us all. The music is a blending of the path that each band member has taken and has multiple influences, but the sound has a signature all its own. https://dreamwalkersband.com/

This is the site for a compelling, award winning mystery/suspense novel oriented toward classical music. The Lost Concerto, by Helaine Mario (the Rare & Scratchy Rock 'N Roll staff's favorite fiction writer), tells the story of a classical pianist who is drawn into a search across France for her missing godson and a priceless concerto lost during World War II.
