A tribute to Supertramp rocks Waterloo for Make-A-Wish fundraiser

On May 30, please ‘Give a Little Bit’ to help kids’ wishes come true

Prepare to be transported back to the prog-rocks sounds of the 70s with DREAMER, the ultimate tribute to Supertramp.

Featuring a group of multi-instrumentalists led by Toronto’s Rich Hamelin, DREAMER authentically recreates the magic of Supertramp's music, from the bands’ soulful vocals to its lush, intricate musical arrangements.

Supertramp dazzled audiences with 1974’s Crime of the Century, featuring classic tracks like “Dreamer,” and “Bloody Well Right”. Rolling Stone Magazine even placed it among its "50 Greatest Prog Rock Albums of All Time."


The band followed up in 1979 with their best-selling Breakfast in America, which earned its place among rock’s all-time great albums. Fans will likely remember “The Logical Song,” Goodbye Stranger” and “Take The Long Way Home,” tracks that form the backbone of many classic rock playlists to this day.

As fans can tell you after seeing their concerts across the country, DREAMER isn't just another cover band – Hamelin, who handles keyboards and vocals, hand-picked his supporting band members for their expertise in capturing the essence of Supertramp's sound.

With instruments ranging from saxophone to vintage keyboards, DREAMER brings every note of Supertramp's legendary tunes to life.


But this event isn't just about music from the era – through Make-A-Wish Canada, buying a ticket to DREAMER will enable you to “give a little bit,” and make a difference in the lives of children with critical illnesses.

Make-A-Wish Canada is an organization dedicated to granting life-changing wishes for children facing critical illnesses.

When a wish is granted, it goes beyond creating a moment of joy – it empowers children to replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. Research shows that wishes have a profound impact on a child's treatment journey, helping them build the physical and emotional strength needed to fight their illness.

Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Canada has granted over 38,000 wishes, bringing hope and happiness to children and their families across the country. By attending the DREAMER concert, you'll be contributing to this noble cause and helping to make more wishes come true.
