at The First Churches of Northampton
Hilltown Families and Nonotuck Community School have partnered up to offer one lucky family a chance to win a family 4-pack of free tickets to Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem as they kick off the schools Winter Family Concert Series in Northampton, MA on Saturday, January 9th at 3pm with a CD release party of their debut family album, Ranky Tanky. What better way to kick-off the New Year than going to a foot-stomping, hand-clapping, body-wiggling family concert with “one of America’s most inventive string bands” (The Boston Herald) — and the proceeds from the performance go to benefit a local non-profit preschool! Deadline to enter to win is 01/06/10. Find out how to enter to win below.
ABOUT RANI ARBO & DAISY MAYHEM
Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem is a rootsy, Americana-style string band of four musicians — all parents — who have played and toured together for 10 years. Their grooves are deep, their four-part harmonies are rich, and their adventurous, eclectic song selection serves their debut family CD Ranky Tanky well. Family music is a new endeavor for the band, but they have longstanding reputation for performances that are, as the Boston Globe put it, “playful and profound. Ranky Tanky sticks with that equation: it’s uplifting, danceable, playful, sometimes silly, sometimes wistful, and never sarcastic. Rani Arbo fires up the fiddle; Anand Nayak plays electric and acoustic guitars; Andrew Kinsy is on upright acoustic bass (and ukulele and banjo), and Scott Kessel pilots the Drumship Enterprise, a percussion rig made from cardboard boxes, tin cans, water jugs, and a vinyl suitcase. Together, they create a joyful, musical fusion of sounds both old and new — and a great soundtrack for family time.
