This year's Squirrel Moon dance features:
- The Band: The Coffee Zombies have rocked dancers from St. Louis to Pittsburgh, and Indianapolis to Atlanta. The fusion of old-time, Celtic, French-Canadian, swing, and original tunes with a hard-driving rhythmic base makes it impossible to stay off the dance floor. www.coffee-zombies.com.
Tom Cunningham (fiddle/guitar) loves playing the fiddle and writing tunes for dancers. With the Hot Club of Derbytown, Schrodinger's TomCats, band du jour and Les Enfants du Fromage, he's played for dancers in several states. His music has also given him opportunities in theatre, in swing, country, Celtic and bluegrass bands, and his one-man show, FiddleTales, incorporates story-telling and singing along with his fiddling.
Dianna Davis's (piano/accordion/clarinet) music instrument addiction has not only taken over her house but has landed her opportunities to play in 2 contra dance bands, the improv group Thin Air, and a traditional Irish ceili band. She corrals many singers and instrumentalists as Music Director at an Unitarian Church and accompanies a social justice women's chorus. She has edited a clarinet method book, judged competitions, and is the scheduler and vice president of Indy contra dance. www.DiannaDavis.com.
Bob Douglas (percussion/guitar) enjoys bringing his drumming experience with an array of musical genres to The Coffee Zombies. He has played afro-pop, reggae, classical, punk, r & b, jazz, blues, prog-rock and country all around the eastern U.S. He is also an accomplished vocalist. He loves being back home playing and recording with so many friends and local artists.
The Caller: Darlene Underwood is from Cincinnati and has that special capacity to provide a satisfyingly shared ride for both experienced and beginning dancers. Darlene chooses dances for their stories, ones that are smooth, fun and have a good flow. If you have so far missed her on the stage, you have likely encountered her on the floor, being passionate about dance on both sides of the mic ravitz.us/darlene/.
