The BEETBOX BAND from Cape Cod play high-energy roots music, including bluegrass, Americana, klezmer, and polka. Their rowdy live shows involve a lot of dancing and singing along. Bandleader Dan Blajda is a 5th-generation fiddler from a family of musicians in Poland's beet-farming region. Clayton March plays clarinet, banjo, and sax. He is a music teacher by day, and plays every week all over Cape Cod, often with bassist and songwriter Greg Johnson (formerly of bluegrass band Raw Honey). Robin Johnson plays piano, and is a writer by day. David Silver plays the drums, using an unusual stand up cocktail kit.
The BEETBOX BAND have made several music videos that can be found on their YouTube channel "Polka Beetbox" (youtube.com/PolkaBeetbox). Their albums can be heard streaming online at http://polkabeetbox.bandcamp.com.
