This dance series started out strong and just keeps getting better and better. Be sure to catch our next one on September 13 and dance the night away with the Twangbusters, with DJ Easy Ed playing music throughout the night whenever the band isn't playing. Once again we’ll be offering a free dance lesson early in the evening.
Swingin' boogie, blues, and bop, with a heapin' helpin' of twang and sass, the TWANGBUSTERS bust out their own high-energy danceable blend of American roots juke-joint rhythms and soulful blues! Led by dynamo Paula Bradley ("Miss Paula"), described as "Patsy Cline meets Bessie Smith" on lead vocals and piano; with the inimitable Peter "Dr. Z" Zarkadas on electric guitar (Sarah Levecque Band, Raw Symphony); and rhythm masters Brian Rost on upright bass (Tarbox Ramblers, Girl Howdy) and former Nashville drummer Kathy Burkly (Girls Night Out). The TWANGBUSTERS mix the best of bluesy country, boogie woogie, barrelhouse into a musical cocktail, shaken and stirred. Guaranteed to make you move yer feet! BOTTOMS UP!
DJ EASY ED is the man behind “Easy Ed’s Variety Hour” on WMFO in Medford, MA (airing alternate Fridays from 6:00 to 8:00 PM Eastern — visitwww.easy-ed.net for details), spinning rockabilly, hillbilly, and ‘50s and early ‘60s rock ‘n’ roll and R&B. He also hosts the Primitive Sounds DJ night at River Gods in Cambridge, MA; spins records live at other clubs; and promotes rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll events throughout the Boston area. He specializes in dance-friendly 45s for folks who love to move their feet.
DANCE TEACHER SUE HUPPE has been two-stepping for many years. She can often be seen at music festivals and wherever you find great live music. An excellent dancer, she often teaches with her old pal, ROGER WEISS (who lives to two-step) and has been doing it for more years than he cares to tell. Together they give an enjoyable, easy-to-understand lesson in basic Texas Two-Step that will have you dancing like experts (almost) when the bands start to play.
