Cajun Music and Dance with The Rubber Band and Ron Bruschi At Schoharie Library

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 7/3/24 | 7/3/24

Tuesday, June 18, 5:30-8:30pm

The Rubber Band returns to the Schoharie Library on Tuesday, June 18, with their unique brand of foot-stomping, toe-tapping Cajun music! This year, Ron Bruschi will give Cajun dance lessons ahead of time so people can enjoy dancing to the lively tunes. Dancing begins at 5:30pm, with live music at 6:30-8:30pm. All are welcome at this free program, no registration is necessary.

The library will also offer Summer Reading Program signups, free make-your-own ice cream sundaes donated by Stewart’s, book giveaways, and fun activities for children. Tables will be set up for anyone who wishes to bring their own picnic.

The Rubber Band includes local musicians Jack Dupont on accordion and vocals, Larry Mazza on guitar, Clemens McGiver on bass and vocals, Jon Mix on drums and vocals,

Chuck Matteson on vocals and percussion, Tom White on fiddle and vocals, and Kristina Johnson on saxophone. A favorite for their joyful, vibrant performances, they thrill and delight audiences of all ages with everything from high energy romps to smooth waltzes. 

Ron Bruschi has been teaching Cajun and  Zydeco dances for many years, including at the annual Flurry Festival in Saratoga Springs.. Ron and his wife Marie run the Dance Flurry Organization’s Cajun/Zydeco dance series on 4th Saturdays from October to April in Albany.

This event kicks off Adventures in the Arts: Building Community, Creativity, and Joy, a series of programs featuring music, dance, painting, a workshop on unleashing the creative process, and needle felting. These programs will be held throughout the rest of 2024.

This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by CREATE Council on the Arts.
