For The Wet Dream, competition at the Patchwork Project finale will be … stiff, to say the least, since vocalist Jenny Teeter will be squaring off against her boyfriend and Emigrate band member, Cy McConnell.

”We’ll see what happens,” Teeter says. “That’s what makes it fun.”

Teeter says The Wet Dream's music — a mix of bluesy rock — will be a little more "provocative" than other bands … but that members are all looking forward to hearing what others have come up with to compete with The Wet Dream's cover of The Beatles' “Oh! Darling.”

For drummer Bobby Moenignann, the Patchwork Project was a way to dive headfirst into the local music scene after transferring to MU this year.

“It’s real cool to be meeting new musicians,” Moenignann says. “It’s something different that you don’t normally do.”

At first, band members weren’t sure what they were getting themselves into. Nerves definitely played a part, says Teeter, who had only seen drummer and accordion player Justin Craig play at open mic nights.

“We got a bunch of people that are good at what they do,” Moenignann says of the band roster. “We work well off each other it didn’t take us long to come up with songs.”

Although none of these band members knew each other six weeks ago, they say that now, they all get along fine. Teeter is planning to shoot a music video for her personal musical project, and she says she's asked The Wet Dream members to help.

“I actually need to get a set band, and I think they would step in since they already said they would for my music video," she says.

Strangers no more, The Wet Dream members even go to shows outside of practice together. Chemistry like that could only have come out of a dream.
