Dance Party to Raise Funds for Food Pantries Dance Party to Raise Funds for Food Pantries

ZUELA is a horn-driven electric dance band that plays all original instrumentals with an exotic world beat flavor. Their music is influenced by reggae and African dance music, and features exotic scales and styles from all over the world. Led by well-known area musician Barry Hyman, ZUELA has been together since 2001, and their brand new cd, "Off The Map," can be heard at http://cdbaby.com/cd/zuela2. ZUELA consists of Lyle Somers on drums, Jacob Goldstone on sax, Lucrezia Alcorn on bass, Andrew Horning on guitar, and Hyman, who writes and arranges all the material as well as playing guitar. ZUELA will be joined on this occasion by special guests Lucas Sconzo on guitar, Nick Hetko on keyboard, Susan Stiner on mandolin, and Josh Kennedy on vocals and guitar.

ATHENA with percussionist JIMMY C, brings her original soul music with spirit to the evening's concert. From tender ballads to belting bluesy, jazz-tinged wails, Athena gets the audience going from the first note. Her engaging style, humor, and passion for music brings audiences to their feet time and time again. ATHENA trained at the Berklee College of Music as a jazz pianist and vocalist. Fronting her own band for years in Boston and traveling the country, ATHENA has gained wide experience as a performer. Melding jazz, world rhythms, pop, folk and blues, ATHENA's music brings in themes of love, loss, longing, connection and spirit. Her goal is to bring people together using music as a touchstone.

The plan is to raise hundreds of dollars for local food panties. Please come, and please tell all your friends to come. It would be so cool if we could raise a significant amount of money for the food pantries!!! Admisssion is by Donation
