THE UTOPIAN DREAMS BAND is riding the latest worldwide contemporary jazz wave with their nu-groove sensibilities. This incredible crew of musical artists has been shaped by the San Francisco Bay Area and "live jazz" music scene over several decades. They credit their jazz evolution with nods to old school West Coast jazz, early 70’s Bay Area fusion and the contemporary jazz explosion. Their music is shaped by deeply orchestrated melodic chops expertly layered over the funk, hip hop, soul and Latin grooves of contemporary jazz.

Core members of The Utopian Dreams Band are:

GMichael Merrifield - bass - executive producer

Patricia Britton - keyboard synths - co-producer

Eddie Baccus Jr. - all saxes and EWI

Tony Darren - guitar (courtesy of Concord jazz)

Craig Alston - piano

Maurice Chevalier Davis - piano/keys/arranger/producer

Sam "Mombo" Hernandez - percussion

Brian "Spyda" T. Wheatley - drums 

In the tradition of the supergroups of contemporary jazz, such as the Rippingtons, Spyro Gyra, Incognito, the Yellowjackets and Fourplay, to name a few...The Utopian Dreams Band brings together a powerhouse of unique players who are accomplished performers in their own name but are drawn to the unique sound of the supergroup...thus The Utopian Dreams Band has evolved...magic
