The Occasionalists
The Occasionalists are a Brooklyn-based band of multi-instrumentalists specializing in live karaoke gigs in and around Brooklyn where we play ‘em and you sing ‘em. This will be the second in a continuing series of benefit shows and this one will be for the ACLU and DRUM (a Brooklyn-based immigrants rights group) http://www.drumnyc.org/. Warm up those vocal chords and get ready to rock for a good cause.

We’ll be playing songs from R.E.M.’s End of the World as We Know It to Bob Marley’s Redemption Song to The Beatles’ Revolution to Public Enemy’s Fight the Power to Bowie/Queen's Under Pressure to Zombie by The Cranberries and so many more.

Dirty Waltz Band
Dirty Waltz Band
This seven-piece band plays more than a dozen instruments in countless genres. Performing originals and arranging songs new and old, they borrow from Balkan, Irish, jazz, blues and American folk traditions. From Tom Waits to Fermin Alvarez, Henry Mancini to Neko Case, their inspirations span oceans and centuries. And what do their songs have in common? They’re all in waltz time.

Featuring Rebecca Hart (guitar and vocals), Mike Shapiro (piano, harmonica and vocals), Susie Greenebaum (violin), Mollie McQuarrie (accordion and banjolele), Rob Rapley (guitar and dobro), Ben Arons (drums and percussion) and Chris Nattrass (double bass).
