Every once in a while, we come across a few stellar musicians who happen to love food and music just as much as we do. This time around, we’ve linked up with self-proclaimed “cosmic rock” L.A. trio DREAMERS, consisting of Nick Wold (vocals/guitars), Nelson (bass/vocals) and Jacob Wick (drums), to talk tunes, travels and treats.
Best food city you’ve been to while on tour? Why?
DREAMERS: New York. It has EVERYTHING and places are open late which is nice for night owls like ourselves. New Orleans is right up there too. Gumbo, Jambalaya. We all like spicy food. That’s a spicy city.
What’s the meal that reminds you of home?
Nick: Burgers and fries.
Nelson: Scrapple and eggs.
What’s the festival that has the best food lineup?
DREAMERS: We played a festival called Valley of the Vapors in Hot Springs AR and they hooked the catering up so hard. All we remember is eating more than we had in a week in one evening. We left with bags of locally roasted coffee and more goodies than we could carry.
What’s your go to Shack order?
DREAMERS: ‘Shroom Burger, fries, strawberry shake.
Why do you think there’s so much overlap between passions for food and music?
DREAMERS: Music and food are both such sensual and immediate pleasures. They are both nourishing and part of our daily lives. One fuels the body and the other fuels the spirit. We recommend fueling up with good eats and then dancing it off with great music 5 times a day.
DREAMERS recently released their debut full-length LP This Album Does Not Exist. Dig it? We’re giving away a pair of tickets for you and a burger bud to their Friday, October 7th show at The Bowery Ballroom with The Mowgli’s and Colony House. Check it out and retweet to win!
