The “surf dudes with attitudes” and their female costars were feelin’ “groovy” as they performed a few memorable songs.
Don’t wake us up if we’re dreaming!
The cast of the Saturday morning sitcom "California Dreams" reunited for a mini-concert on Friday at an event that crossed over with another popular ’90s show: "Saved by the Bell."
On Friday, stars of the show — which aired from 1992 to 1997 — banded together for a two-show, one-night-only event at Saved by the Max, the "Saved by the Bell"-themed pop-up restaurant in West Hollywood, California.
OG stars Kelly Packard and Jennie Kwan — who played bass player Tiffany Smith and vocalist Samantha "Sam" Woo, respectively — recruited fellow costars Michael Cade, William James Jones and Aaron Jackson for the concert.
Joining the cast were Ryan Cabrera, Youngstown’s James Lee Dallas and actress-singer Ali Navarro. Together, they performed the show’s theme song and other popular numbers from the series like "Castles on Quicksand" and "One World."
Inspired by the age of reboots and revivals, Kwan and Packard told Variety they got the idea for the reunion concert while they were at an event for another ’90s show. After seeing the reaction from the crowd at the other pop-culture event, reuniting their cast members reportedly became a "love project" for the two of them.
Singalong if you know the words! @californiadreamsreunionconcert ? @sarah_minders

Cade, who played Sylvester "Sly" Winkle, the band’s manager on the sitcom, said when the crew came together again it was as if no time had passed. The last time they played together was on "The Tonight Show" back in 2010.
"I wanted to hang with my old friends," he said. "It brought me back to 25 years ago. I felt like I was on set a couple of times. It was like time had not even passed. We’re kindred spirits for sure."
Following the reunion, Kwan shared a selfie with Packard on Instagram (below). "Well that was meet and greet was INSANE!!!" she captioned the pic. "Don’t know how many people came and how we got through the line. So truly overwhelmed. THANK YOU So much to all of you who came out to say hi. We feel the love!!"
So is there a chance for a possible reboot in the future? Kwan said while NBC hasn’t contacted them, the cast says they’re "all open to whatever happens next."
