DESERT DREAMS PRODUCTIONS AND REAL II REAL PRODUCTIONS
Desert Dreams Productions, LLC and Real II Reel Productions are proud to announce a Strategic Alliance to record and develop quality artists and to provide the highest level of professional production and recording services, songwriting, musical direction, and career advice to aspiring artists.
The alliance brings together Dick Wagner, aka “The Maestro of Rock”—songwriter and lead guitarist for Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Lou Reed, KISS, Peter Gabriel, Meat Loaf, Lita Ford, and more — with producer and recording engineer, Marshall Block. Marshall has produced three "Best Albums of the Year," as well as music for major motion pictures and television shows, including the Academy Award winning film, "The Fighter," staring Mark Wahlberg. Marshall was also the executive producer for Dick Wagner's seminal album, "Rock Hitstory," which is currently being remastered for a second release.
Says co-executive, Dick Wagner, “Marshall Block and I have agreed to pool our considerable talents, industry contacts, and years of experience in recording and producing music, to provide multi-faceted services to artists desiring to work with lifetime music industry veterans.”
“Our artists will record at Real ii Reel Studios, Marshall’s beautiful and sophisticated recording facilities in Fenton, Michigan, with a team of highly credited professionals working in their corner.”
"We’re not gonna focus on high budget, cost-prohibitive production that would be difficult for aspiring artists to afford. Our alliance will provide artists with the highest quality professional music production and songwriting, at modest and affordable cost.”
“Our artists will simply have to be willing to invest a little in themselves, to work hard and be dedicated to their art, and be willing to listen to the advice of those of us who are and have been there before.” says Dick Wagner.
Co-executive Marshal Block adds, “With Desert Dreams and Real ii Real, you will find a place where an artist’s best interests are at the forefront of our thoughts… And besides, we love seeing an artist’s reactions after they hear how they sound in the studio…and their smiles after hearing a few great road stories told during the process,” Marshall states.
Recording at Real ii Reel Studios, with Marshall Block, Dick Wagner and artist Cassie Wilcox
“I call my studio in the Fenton Woods “The Ponderosa,” because this studio is both my home and also our alliance’s work facility. This means that our artists are provided with all the comforts of home, along with the extraordinary opportunity to interact with the Maestro and his wealth of musical knowledge, as well as be regaled by stories of days with the Jackson Five, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, and the entire Jackson family by Susan Michelson, Desert Dreams partner and the Maestro’s personal and business manager.”
You are invited to come meet us and work in the wooded peace of lovely Fenton, where wild turkeys roam the grounds, where deer peek in and play at the edges of the property… and where, from the first day with the Maestro, you will learn more about musical performance, creativity, and songwriting than any commercial class can teach you.
Desert Dreams Partners, Susan Michelson and Dick Wagner

Alice Cooper Dubs Her
'The Other Girl Next Door':
Brings Her Fiery Fusion of Edge and Sophistication To New Downtown LA Hotspot BORDELLO
With Monthly Residency Every First Wednesday Of The Month Starting March 7th
Arizona-based singer/songwriter Wensday will be bringing her fiery fusion of edge and sophistication to downtown LA hotspot Bordello with her new monthly residency every first Wednesday of the month starting March 7th. Playing alongside Wensday at this free preview show will be Fred Mandel on keyboard (Elton John, Queen, Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper) and guitar virtuoso Sid Jacobs (Buddy Montgomery, Harold Land, Eddie Harris). A sultry and sweet chanteuse one minute, a bold and edgy rocker the next, rock legend Alice Cooper sums it up best, _Wensday is the other girl next door._ She brings a magical multiple personality to her explosive debut album whose title forges an exciting new musical hybrid: Torch Rock.
Her diverse musical
backgrounds as a jazz and rock singer, combined with
her blues and classical training make Wensday simply
way too cool to peg. Since graduating with a drama
degree from NYU_where her social life gathered
around weekend raves--she_s complemented her
sophisticated jazz gigs with work as a body piercer
in renowned tattoo parlors in Miami and Atlanta, in
addition to taking on multiple roles as teacher,
director, vocal coach, playwright and Associate
Director of All Childrens Theater in her hometown of
Providence, Rhode Island.
Located at 901 E. 1st St., Bordello, formerly Little Pedro's, flirts with the notorious past of its infamous location, as the oldest bar and brothel in Downtown Los Angeles, by reflecting its legendary status as a theater of the unusual and provocative. The completely renovated and colorfully redecorated venue has been appropriately renamed by famed L.A. club owner Tony Gower, celebrity designer Dana Hollister, revolutionary urban planner Elizabeth Peterson and innovative restaurateur Jim Venetos.
WHO: Sultry singer-songwriter WENSDAY
WHAT: Performance in support of debut album Torch Rock
WHERE: Downtown LA Hotspot Bordello, 901 E. 1st St., Los Angeles, CA 90021 (213) 687-3766 (former location of Little Pedro's)

May 2006 finds Dick Wagner in production and songwriting collaboration with Dr. Gary Telgenhoff. Dr. Telgenhoff is creator of the SkinnerRat project, a look at the dark side of life through the eyes of the "rock drummer" and senior medical examiner of Las Vegas. Truly brilliant, slightly twisted, out of the mainstream music.
April, 2006 brings Dick Wagner to a creative meeting and co-writing session with Alice Cooper, the result of which will be potential new songs for Mr. Cooper’s next album (CD). After a long period of time, these two master songwriters are once again joined in what has always been a fruitful and successful collaboration of creative minds.
April 2006 also finds Dick Wagner in the studio with young and gifted singer, MissWensday, producing the initial tracks of her first CD. The CD will feature songs written by Mr. Wagner and MissWensday. MissWensday is a soulful Jazz/Blues/Pop singer from Providence R.I. with fantastic cross over appeal
An auspicious beginning for the Desert Dreams Team!
More to come!!
