Dreams wrote and recorded over 50 original songs throughout the 1990's with the help of Grammy-nominated producer Gary Loizzo. Although a formal album was never released, Dreams did produce a promotional cassette that contained 4 songs and 5000 copies of the cassette went into circulation. That cassette was ultimately digitized and still circulates the internet today with inquiries coming in about it's origins from around the globe.

Popular songs include:
Does It Feel Like You Want It To
The Fear Of Being Alone
Living In Another World
Drive You Crazy
Always There For You
Made In America
Loving You Ain't Enough
Can't Stop Rockin'

Dreams is working to have the above songs and others available on iTunes, Spring of 2011. Dreams also continues to write and plans to record new original material in 2011



Formed in the fall of 1985 in Palos Hills, IL, Dreams started performing high-energy rock ‘n’ roll in the northern Illinois area in early 1986. Originally based out of Chicago’s southwest suburbs, the band members began perfecting their musical skills and style by covering popular top-40 songs at local high school and college performance.

Within a few years, Dreams started writing and performing original music as their abilities and popularity continued to grow. For the next five years, Dreams performed an intense blend of original and cover material in front of thousands of people during more than 300 shows.

Highlights included headlining performances at major universities (including the University of Iowa, Northern Illinois University, Southern Illinois University and the University of Illinois at Chicago), nightclubs (including the now defunct China Club, the legendary Cubby Bear and the original P.J. Flaherty’s) and numerous city festivals (Tinley Park, Lisle, Oak Lawn, Chicago Ridge, Lansing and many more). Additional highlights include selling 5,000 cassettes of original material and showcasing for major record labels on Hollywood’s famous Sunset Strip in the early 1990’s.

Dreams’ local success can be attributed to the band’s relationship with Gary Loizzo (keyboardist Todd’s father). Gary is a Grammy-nominated recording engineer who worked with Styx on multimillion-selling Styx records in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, as well as on many other successful recordings. He is also was a founding member and lead singer of the American Breed which had a No. 1 hit song with “Bend Me Shape Me” in 1968. Dreams’ experience with Gary helped them to refine their writing and recording skills and gave them an education and foundation that few young bands have enjoyed.

Prior to their reunion at Chicago RidgeFest 2008, the band’s last live performance was in 1997, as members amicably parted way to begin professional careers and start families.

Throughout the history of Dreams, the band’s lineup has never changed, with all five original members still in the group.
