Dream Weaver

Introducing Dream Weaver to you all!

It’s my cover band project in which I am the vocalist. Please check out the cover songs and the short intro below. I hope you’ll dig it 🙂  Kick back and enjoy the music. Rock on!

Please feel free to share the links. New live recordings uploaded.

Dream Weaver is a cover band that covers a wide array of rock genres, most noticeably hard rock and heavy metal in the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

We’re based in Tokyo, with every member coming from a different country. So, I think it’s safe to say that we’re an international band 😛

Alvis (vocalist [me]; Taiwan), Filip (rhythm guitarist; Belgium), Lee (drummer; the USA), and Emir (bassist; Turkey).

Currently, we’ve covered Whitesnake, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, and Lover Boy. We should eventually cover most (if not all) classic rock bands including Gun ‘n’ Roses, Judas Priest, Skid Row, etc. So please stay tuned 🙂

For any performance requests, please feel free to leave me a message here. Alternatively, you can also email me at alvisspeaking@gmail.com

We’ll be delighted to perform for you!



Morning Show Bonus: Speaking with the Red Bean Cake Girl

Inspiring stuff! Apart from her linguistic talents, her grit to stick to her guns in a place what I call home is even more admirable. While listening to this podcast from ICRT’s Taiwan Talk, I could particularly relate to the part where they talk about Taiwanese’ patronizing attitude by and large and the dispositive racism that permeates our society. That is partially due to the fact that Taiwan is still pretty much homogeneous. Food for thought indeed! On a lighter note, I’ve never heard of Urdu before. It does sound intriguing though.

Speaking of food earlier, I can’t wait to have my share of the red bean cakes! I should pay her a visit sometime now that I live rather close to Banqiao.

Anyway, give it a listen when you see fit!
