Bad Dreams is a Latin American progressive rock band. The group started out as a Genesis cover band which over 10 years became known well enough to recognize their accomplishments as musicians. This also led to contact with Steve Hackett, for whom they became an opening act on his tour, and the last Genesis singer Ray Wilson with whom they also played with. In 2015 the band became the first Latin American band in the Cruise To The Edge celebration where they played successful shows. In 2015, Bad Dreams started of releasing their own solo material. They released their debut album 'Apocalypse Of The Mercy' and followed it up with 'Deja Vu' the next year which features Steve Rothery of Marillion on one of the songs. Music of Bad Dreams can be recommended to both fans of Genesis but also of neo prog in the vein of Marillion.
