The Boom Booms
They make music that makes people want to dance — or “Get up and love somebody,” as lead singer and guitarist Aaron Nazrul calls it. Whether breaking into song and dance on the streets of Paris, storming stages with Congolese musicians in Brussels, playing to thousands at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival or serenading abuelitas in South America, the charming sextet is able to reach across cultural barriers and connect with people of all stripes, on levels equally rhythmic and emotional.

Bananafish Dance Orchestra
BFDO have been known to perform up to four hours! With this crew of talented soloists, a wealth of percussion jams and even trumpet on trumpet battles. If you want to dance like you got an ass in your pants,this is not a party to be missed!
