1356982977_FB_Steve___Pinkhouse

started fooling around with drums at age 11 and by the age of 15 was playing and recording with rock bands in the SF Bay Area. My first recordings were made with a folk rock duo - Pat n' Al - at the old Coast Recording Studios in downtown San Francisco and Columbia "B" in Hollywood. This was fairly heady stuff for a fifteen year old from San Jose, CA.

Now semi-retired from the ad biz, I'm having a blast getting back into playing gigs and jams with friends from the local scene. I'm finding there are a lot of great, old weekend warriors out there - and some wonderful, younger players who seem to get a kick out working with us.

Tan of Dreams Stems from the Creative work of Singer, SongWriter & Drummer  Enahena, akaRenato Annicchiarico, whose principal characteristic is his sophisticated sense of melody & harmony (most likely descended from his medieval gregorian ancestors),
which paired with his strong sense of rhythm, is the hallmark of the Band ...
 - After a short period of collaborations in 2013-2014, with various musicians, the band comes to find its current & final lineup with the addition of two outstanding musicians, long time Renato's friends - One is Grammy nominated PETER COR, (Keyboards, Guitar, vocals), for his song composed for "Earth Wind & Fire" and AARON CAROTHERS, (Bass) ...
The Trio with this final lineup seems to have fully matched Renato's Vision in achieving an inspiring yet powerful sound, naturally blending Melody & Rhythm in such a fashion which is appealing to an array of diverse audiences ...
