About The California Dreamers

The California Dreamers are a New Zealand vocal group who are fast on their way to becoming one of the most sought-after acts in the country. With tight four-part harmonies and groovy costumes, the band celebrates the sunny sound of 60’s – 70’s Folk/Rock. They faithfully recapture the classic sounds of groups like ‘The Mamas and the Papas’, ‘The Fifth Dimension’, ‘Peter, Paul and Mary’… and more.

The California Dreamers’ repertoire of uplifting, feel-good songs is a heartwarming experience for young and old alike. The Dreamers have made three appearances on TVNZ’s ‘Good Morning Show’, and performed to international audiences at Sky City in Auckland as well as building a huge following all around New Zealand.
