Lucid Dreamer, a Dallas based Christian Rock, Praise and Worship band, have been providing a ministry of music in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area since the band came together in 1988.
Originally, Lucid Dreamer was a secular band playing a mix of Classic Rock Covers and original tunes. Soon after their formation, the focus began to shift to what the band had termed, “Positive Rock,” which led them to the desire to focus their talents to the Christian Music scene. With original songs like Better Way, God Won’t Let You Down, The Day and Don’t Runaway, the band established itself as a powerhouse trio with a classic rock style.
Currently the band is working on a new CD with a release date of December 2011
Troy Adcox - Drums, Vocals
By the age of 15 he began playing 80's metal tunes with Walter Pierson on guitar. The two teens met Edward Ruiz from Troy's high school, Sunset High in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas, Texas. They soon formed a band BACKFLASH and another Sunset friend, Frank Ramirez joined them on the bass. A year later Frank Ramirez moved to Lancaster, Texas and long -time friend and bassist extraordinaire Jeff Wade completed the foursome. After a couple of years and a few gigs later BACKFLASH disbanded and each member moved and or went thier different ways.
After a few gigs this line-up became a 3-piece.
Troy's primary influences as a drummer are Ringo Starr, Alex VanHalen, Louie Weaver, Nicko McBrain, Robert Sweet, and Jerry Gaskill. His latest drum is his Remo Earth Djembe and he plays Yamaha kits , Zildjian cymbals and Vic Firth sticks and rods. He firmly believes that a cowbell and tambourine have a place in modern rock drumming and uses his whenever possible. He believes that the groove is more important than technical playing and no, he still cannot twirl his drumsticks! Say Hello to him at a LUCID DREAMER gig near you!!!!
