This is a variation on our usual house concert theme. We are partnering with our friends and neighbors at Peace House to offer this unique outdoor concert. We will open it up to a wider audience and invite the neighborhood kids to enjoy the concert as well. If you’ve never heard Dede and the Dreamers, you are in for a very special experience!
About the music
From humble beginnings, Dede has paved her way on her own experimental, alternative, off the grid musical journey. Dede has picked up her gypsy skills over the years including soulful singing, raw song-writing, and playing percussion of all kinds. Skilled in the art of the Vibraphone, Tambourine, Drumkit, Frame Drum, Snare Drum, Vocals, Word Smithery and much more, she is a versatile performer that can wear many hats, and does. Her vocal style mixes sweet Irish influence with growling soul-felt jazz sensibilities, a unique combo you can only experience for yourself.
Drift the afternoon away to the jazzy sensibilities of Dede and the Dreamers. Described as Psychedelic/Folk/Jazz, this band will mesmerize you and send you into a dream world with sweet melodies and full sounds to tantalize your brain. This collaboration will have you snapping your fingers, singing along, dancing with your lover, and cuddling up to your closest friends.
Directions & Parking
321 Phelps St., Kalamazoo: From downtown Kalamazoo, follow Michigan Avenue east. Just after the King Highway turnoff get in the right lane and stay right as you pass under the viaduct (you are still on E. Michigan Ave). Straight through light at E. Main, continuing on E. Michigan, turn left on Phelps Street — Peace House is a half block up on the left. Street parking is available on both sides of Phelps. Use caution when crossing the road!
In Case of Rain
In the event of inclement weather, we will move the concert to a nearby indoor venue — we will post on this page any updates related to weather arrangements.
