THANKSGIVING in OCTOBER

Dear Dreamers,

The journey for Dream Job persists! Dream Job, still in its infant stage but steadily growing, continues to pervade the soundscape of contemporary music with every performance and new dreamer it reaches. Even though travel expenses have somewhat restricted our options for venues, we are grateful to acknowledge that through your deep appreciation, virtual postings and word of mouth sharing, Dream Job music is finding its way to more listeners of the world. We must be doing something right because the positive feedback to Dream Job’s work has been extraordinary. It is in this light that we reach out to our fan base to express our deepest thanks and our most humble gratitude.

This video is a dedication to all dreamers aware of the collective human experience’s movement toward dissolving the barriers of ignorance, realizing that “We’re All Here” searching for meaning, searching for ways to coexist, searching for personal truth, searching for certainty, and ultimately searching for ourselves. Once again Dream Job is documented in candid form by the artistic lens and creative perspective of Studio Corrida, and, after patient consideration and wavering judgment, Dream Job and Studio Corrida have both agreed to release this not-so-perfect yet somehow perfect serendipity. The music is raw, visceral and honest, and it is Dream Job’s way of saying THANK YOU for supporting the Dream!

keep your dreams alive

BUSY LIVING THE DREAM. . .

HELLO DREAMERS! As another summer comes to a close, and the nights get chillier, and kids are back to school, and football is back on the tube, DREAM JOB is gearing up for an exciting string of shows over the next month. Our musical journey will take us back to New York City for the third time this year to play at The Shrine on Friday Aug. 26, followed by a performance at The 51 Basscamp Festival in upstate NY, near Albany on Sat. Aug. 27, which is sure to be a memorable experience.  September is going to be an especially busy month, highlighted by three festival gigs – The Carnegie Arts & Heritage Festival (Sept. 9), Culturefest, WV 2011 (Sept. 10), Little Italy Days in Bloomfield, PA (Sept. 24), the premiere of SLAVES to COOL at The August Wilson Center for African American Culture (Sept. 24), as well as shows with These United States (Sept. 14), and Red Wanting Blue (in Kent, OH – Sept. 16). A full list of our shows can be found on our Reverb Nation page: https://www.reverbnation.com/dreamjob

We are looking forward to bringing our music to new audiences across the region and debuting some new material for our old fans. We have been both thrilled and humbled by the overwhelming positive responses to our music, and we will continue to do what we do for all of our fellow dreamers out there for as long as we can. Until next time, keep living your dreams…

Dream Job presents: a SLAVES to COOL WORLD

 

Welcome to the Cool World! From the power of the people, to the hands of the middle man, manufactured for the market and sold back to the masses, “Slaves to Cool” exports musical theater on a fantastic journey to the heart of a priceless song.  From singer-songwriter and performance artist ricardo iamuuri, performed by Pittsburgh’s own DREAM JOB, comes “Slaves to Cool,” a fearless new musical that explores the complexities of “Cool” by way of cross-examination: profit over people, the sacred and the profane, liberty versus security, and reality compared to illusion.  We have packaged and sold our “Fire” (our creativity, our zeal, our vision) and now we only consume the fashion thereof.  In ignorance we buy into “Cool” (the creation, the acknowledgement, the art), consequently abandoning the spark.  Now, “Cool” has become Master, and as long as we continue to forget what gave birth to “Cool” we will remain “Slaves” to it!  In this fable, two friends find themselves charting separate courses in life: one toward the corporate sector of “Cool” and the other toward the resistance of “Cool.”  Swelling with soulful sounds and powerfully convicting lyrics, and overflowing with relentless passion, “Slaves to Cool” will shake your foundation and encourage you to walk through your own “Fire” of questions regarding our collective state of convenience, conformity, composure and control.  This musical extravaganza will tear down the fourth wall to engage audience members from the onset and push us all toward a personal dramatic finale of choice!
