You may be wondering... "What exactly is Giant Robot Dance?" Not to worry, there is a perfectly plausible non-paranormal explanation. Unfortunately, I'm not at liberty to go into particulars (national security is after all our number one priority) but, suffice to say that a team of highly trained specialists has been analyzing various data collected from the most recent incident and it has nothing to do with a highly infectious strain of contra dancing or the outlandishly-rocking music and bizarre fashion experiments reported from the area.
Giant Robot Dance brings together five talented young musicians from New York, Vermont and Washington, DC for a high-energy, alter-ego, super-psychedelic contra dance experience. Two sets of musical brothers (Andrew and Noah VanNorstrand of The Great Bear Trio and Andrew and Aaron Marcus of The Gift Of The Marci and Jiggermeister ) have teamed up with this other guy (Michael Ferguson of Jiggermeister) for a wild night of blaring accordion, shredding electric guitar, bludgeoning drums and honking trombone solos, plus a sprinkling of very tasteful piano melodies and delicate violin accents.
If you've ever longed to balance and swing with ELO, hey for four with Carlos Santana or petronella turn to the music of Queen, this may very well be as close as you'll ever get!
