This summer the City has teamed up with 95.5 WBRU to bring some of the nation’s best rising talent to the Waterplace stage. The series will feature emerging alternative rock bands paired with regional rising stars. Six dynamic acts will entertain residents and visitors in one of the city’s most breathtaking parks.
Brooklyn’s Dreamers bring their unique brand of ‘70s punk meets power pop to the Waterplace stage. Nick Wold (vocals, guitar), Chris Bagamery (drums, backup vocals), and Nelson (bass, backup vocals) introduced the Dreamers to listeners in November 2014 with their self-released, self-titled debut EP. Their colorful, passionate music tugged at heartstrings and made tastemakers dance, earning them praise Billboard, Spin, Alternative Press, Vice NOISEY, Guitar World, and generating a major buzz in the blogosphere among HypeM heavy hitters like The Wild Honey Pie, Earmilk, and Baeble. The band has already shared the stage with such notable artists as The Vaccines, The 1975, Bear Hands, Walk The Moon, Stone Temple Pilots, Oberhofer, and Broncho. The Beardogz will open the show.
