Old Man Luedecke is the recording name of two time JUNO award winning and Polaris prize  nominated singer songwriter Chris Luedecke. A multiple East Coast Music Award winner  known for his high energy banjo driven stompers, touching guitar ballads and dry humorous  stories, Luedecke has been making a soundtrack to an authentic life for nearly twenty years.  

Born in Toronto and long time resident of the country near Chester Nova Scotia, Luedecke  began recording in the early 2000’s DIY folk scene of Halifax. He made his two JUNO winning  albums for Black Hen Music in the late 00s with Steve Dawson as producer at Vancouver’s  famed Factory studio. While on a tour of England in 2009, he met and supported folk roots  legend Tim O’Brien who produced Luedecke’s next two albums. Tender is the Night was  recorded at John’s Prine’s Butcher Shoppe Studio in Nashville in 2012 and 2015’s Domestic  Eccentric was recorded in a cabin Luedecke built himself at his home in NS. 2019 saw  Luedecke recording Easy Money at both the Banff Centre in Alberta and at Hotel2Tango in  Montreal.  

Songs like I quit my Job at the beginning of his career and the Early Days at the beginning of  his family and dozens of other fan favourites trace a warm line of effort, sadness and joy and  provide a soundtrack to many peoples’ own progress through adulthood, touching a rare place  of truth and charm in the holiness of the mundane. His performing style with his easy going  humour and storytelling creates a rare space of hopeful and intimate magic.  

Luedecke has kept up many worldwide concert appearances, playing in Europe and around  Canada and the USA and six trips to Australia, including a memorable tour where his whole  young family travelled with him around rural Queensland for the Festival of Small Halls.  

In May 2022 Luedecke was awarded an honorary doctorate from King’s University in Halifax for his cultural contributions.

Founded in 2001, we've developed a reputation, among artists and audiences alike, as a premium live entertainment venue across Canada and further afield. 

Our room is a listening room, which is a rare gem to find. There is no greater gift to give performers than to simply listen. They bring with them years of dedication and we get to enjoy and absorb their creativity. As an audience member, the experience is without parallel, providing an incredibly intimate and unique opportunity to see top talent from Canada, and around the world.

A wide range of musical styles can be seen on the Dream stage. Though they differ in genre, they are united in their skills. Expect to see Jazz, blues, indie, R&B, folk, punk, spoken word, reggae, rock, country, comedy, and more.

Chef Matt, who joined the Dream in 2023, offers an ethnic influence on his delectable, fresh and nutritious menu.

A night at the Dream Café includes a warm welcome, great food and an outstanding music experience. Our regulars know that no matter who is gracing the stage that night - the calibre of music and entertainment will be excellent. Thank you for supporting live music, the arts and The Dream Cafê
