Herb & Kim Semones formed "The Bay Dreamers" as a duo based out of Frankfort, Kentucky! We have
recently added Gary Harmon on Drums/Percussion and are now aka "the Bay Dreamers Trio"! Gary plays in a variety of local bands
and his experience really adds to the island vibe we have been trying to achieve. We have played most of the local Bars and
Restaurant Patios in the area over the last couple of years! We have built a very loyal fanbase who we appreciate dearly...thanks
guys!!! The variety of our songlist ranges over five decades and more musical styles than that! From Jimmy Buffet to Pink
Floyd to Sugarland with a nautical theme thrown in for good measure...SIT BACK WITH A COLD ONE AND ENJOY!

The Bay Dreamers are husband and wife team Herb and Kim Semones!
The Duo was named after our 1976 Catalina 30' Sailboat "Bay Dreams" In our off time we spend as much time as possible in Herb's
birthplace, Key West, Florida! We were married on the Island in 1993. As an official and honorary member of the
Conch Republic we have participated in the Conch Republic Independence Re-enactment Battle aboard several different sailing
vessels under our own command and aboard the Schooner "Western Union" under the command of Rear Admiral Finbar Gittleman
himself! The Bay Dreamers were formed as a way to make some money doing what we love playing music and making people happy!
After attending the Key west Songwriter's Festival in 2009 a spark was re-united with
Herb's love of songwriting! Writing daily is becoming a huge part of my life! I have always written songs but, just recently
started taking it more seriously as a viable career option! We would eventually like to migrate to the Keys in the winter
and play regionally in the summer! This is our grand retirement plan!

The Florida Keys are a Fisherman's Paradise!
There are numerous outstanding places to fish up and down the Florida Keys! From
a private charter on a 60' Sportfishing Boat or alone in the backcountry under a bridge! There is simply NO BETTER PLACE
One of our favorite fishing spots in the Keys is on Sugarloaf Key (see chart
below). Under the bridge at Harris Gap is one of the best alternative fishing spots in the Keys if the weather is
too bad to go out to the reef! Go at slack tide if possible!
The Barracuda shown in the picture was caught in Tarpon Creek, the Channel leading
into the flats of Sugarloaf Sound! (approx. mile marker 20) This area is also known for excellent snapper, bonefish,
permit and shark fishing!

Sailing...on Cave Run Lake!
When not in Key West or playing music Herb and Kim sail "Bay Dreams"
on beautiful Cave Run Lake in the Daniel Boone National Forest. The lake is one of the best sailing destinations in Kentucky. Less
than 90 miles from Frankfort the lake is located off of I-64 just outside of Morehead, Kentucky. It's well worth the drive!
