Get ready for a Rocking Robotic Good Time!
A WEEKEND OF CONTRAS WITH GIANT ROBOT DANCE and The JEMS with callers Lisa Greenleaf and Luke Donforth
Giant Robot Dance brings together three sets of musical brothers - Andrew and Noah VanNorstrand, Andrew and Aaron Marcus, Michael and Alex Ferguson - for a wild weekend of blaring accordion, shredding electric guitar, bludgeoning drums and honking trombone solos, plus a sprinkling of very tasteful piano melodies and delicate violin accents.
The JEMS combine youth and experience - Jamie Oshima on guitar, Ed Howe on fiddle, Matthew Kenney on percussion, and Stuart Kenney on bass - who stretch the boundaries of traditional tunes with new innovation to contra dance music.
