The Dreamtree Shakers live show engages the audience through the performance of primarily original tunes and creative movement. The full band sound is comprised of vocal harmonies, percussion, bass, saxophone, flute, guitar and harmonica; however, the band can put on an equally engaging show with fewer members. All of the instrumentation is mindful of rhythmic variety, yet is still aware of establishing patterns that are accessible and pleasing to younger audience members while holding the interest of their caregivers. The original songs will introduce characters in ways that tell a story and welcome the imaginations of audience members to make connections that are relevant to their own experiences. The characters and situations are highlighted and explored through creative movement and props. Every note, movement, and image is performed or displayed in a manner wherein we strive to respect the intelligence of every audience member. The band asks the audience to join in the journey of the show in various ways, such as singing along, moving their bodies, and using their imaginations.
