ABOUT THE PRIMATE FIASCO

The Primate Fiasco, the Pioneer Valley’s own New Orleans street band (Sousaphone, banjo, brass, woodwinds, drums, etc), plays music that you wouldn’t expect. They can keep a dance party pumpin’ on a sidewalk or from a stage. High energy arrangements and improvisation mix with fascinating lyrics and curveball cover decisions. From their Grammy nominated kids album, “Wheels on the Bus,” to their cult following of Hippies and Hipsters to their gray haired jazz lovers, the Fiasco scene is open to all music lovers, especially those who love to dance. Whether you see them on stage or parading through a festival campground, you’ll be smiling and moving your feet. The Primate Fiasco has shared the stage with Classic Rock legends, Jazz greats, Jam Band giants, and random people from the audience. -  www.theprimatefiasco.com

Dadnabit, the “Dads writing about kids’ culture” blog, summed up The Primate Fiasco live concert experience perfectly, “Trust me: You’re a Primate Fiasco fan. You just don’t know it yet.”

    One of the great ways Hilltown Families is connecting us is in your posting of events like these, which I then get to share with neighbors, friends and “friends of friends’ on facebook (and then enjoy in person with them). It is a real gift to have a virtual community since we are all so spread out geographically. It brings together folks who ordinarily wouldn’t cross watersheds and ridges and I love the diversity of your postings and events. Thanks for what you are doing! Lorena Loubsky, Colrain, Mass.

    I live in Williamsburg, MA and have recently started consulting Hilltown Families for ideas on enjoying winter. It’s been so helpful — reminding me of places and activities I’ve forgotten and introducing me to new ones. Seeing that there was a full moon hike happening somewhere the other night gave me the idea of suggesting a full moon walk with my husband. So beautiful!

    It helps me to find fun and interesting things to do with my friends children. I live in Plainville,ma. But a lot of my friends live in Northampton,Worthington and goshen,ma
