You want to dance. We can help.

We're a contemporary midwestern contradance band.  

Sam Bartlett once said of us: "They sound like a contradance band that's never heard another contradance band" and we have always taken that as a compliment. We play traditional fiddle tunes, write a lot of our own tunes, and play a lot of other contemporary tunes written by friends.
