St. Patrick's Day, any day of the year. That's what you can expect from Rebels of the Sacred Heart. We select the best songs from across the board of Irish vocal pub and punk music and give you a night to remember (or forget, as the case may be). Traditional instrumental is great. . . but that's not us. Oh, and everyone in the band sings. More importantly, the room will get more than involved. Our sets have been built to include convivial drinking games, and the band encourages folks in the crowd to sing along and keep the bar busy. 21+ $10
Celebrate it with The Bang Group at the
Redfern Arts Center in Keene, NH
Friday, March 23rd 7-9pm
The Bang Group is a New York-based, theatrical dance troupe founded to honor the power of rhythm in the human urge to dance. Choreographer David Parker creates works that are brimming with comic enthusiasm, bringing a blend of tap, body percussion, vaudeville, ballet and contemporary dance that demands to be heard as well as seen. Expect toe shoes, tap shoes, Velcro suits and an evening filled with rhythm and fun.
Excerpt from a Review of the Bang Group
Though his pieces are humorous, they aren't easy, being based on cerebral musical structures with latent associations. They function on three levels at once. The rhythmic level must be fulfilled first, but the movements used to create the rhythms are often loaded with meaning. They may include kissing and slapping sounds, percussive embraces and rebuffs that are also affecting on a psychological or emotional level. Thirdly, they involve large body movements, which are atypical of percussive dance forms, making the physical level very demanding as well.
