September 2nd Contradance


After a hot summer, we're ready to begin our fall season on Friday September 2nd.

Our band will be Ithaca's Ms. Marty and "Smokin' Good Band" and the caller will be Peter Stix.

Steve Ellner and Marty Blodgett swing the melodies on accordion and fiddle. Jess Youngquest rocks the rhythm with his guitar, and adds vocals and harmonica.
They are well known for playing rags and including swing tunes and vocals in their dance music. And you'll really enjoy Jess's rendition of "Sweet Georgia Brown" and other songs.

Peter Stix has been the featured caller at contradances throughout the country and currently is calling in and around the Capital District, while overseeing the Albany Contradance series.
And you may remember him from our Caribbean Contra in 2015 as well!

With SGB's creative style and Peter's wide repertoire of dances, we are sure to have an evening of lively fun!
So kick off your Labor Day weekend with us!
