HALFTIME ENTERTAINMENT

Sawyer's Dream - Minneapolis based Sawyer's Dream is an all original, pop/rock band with amazing vocal harmonies. Singers Monique Carroll-Blakey and Adrianne Prettyman create a powerful vocal blend over songwriter Sky Athmann's smart arrangements. Drummer Ryan Barrett and bassist Buster Broughten lay down a rock solid foundation while Sky (acoustic guitar) and Erik Newman (lead guitar) fill the spaces with inventive riffs and sonic colors. Sawyer's Dream offers the listener a modern take on the classic rock of the '60s and '70s. A true band, each member brings amazing talent to the table. Lyrically, the songs will take you back to simpler times, a time of dreams, nature and human kindness. The band welcomes you to forget your worries and take the journey with them.
