The PIONEER VALLEY PIONEERS is a high-energy trio that plays traditional country from the 1950’s and ‘60s with a big emphasis on country duets. The band also dabbles in rockabilly and songs from WWII, and has some great originals as well. The members include, Lynnette Lenker on vocals and rhythm guitar, Chris DeBarge on vocals and rhythm/lead guitar and Phil Lenker on vocals and standup bass. Introducing our new drummer, Brian Hammond, a fine addition! Lynnette and Chris are both former members of The Stumbleweeds. DJ EASY ED is the man behind “Easy Ed’s Variety Hour” on WMFO in Medford, MA (airing alternate Fridays from 6:00 to 8:00 PM Eastern—see www.easy-ed.net for details), spinning rockabilly, hillbilly, and ‘50s and early ‘60s rock ‘n’ roll and R&B. He also hosts the Primitive Sounds DJ night at River Gods in Cambridge, MA; spins records live at other clubs; and promotes rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll events throughout the Boston area. He specializes in dance-friendly 45s for folks who love to move their feet.
DANCE TEACHER SUE HUPPE has been teaching two-stepping for many years. She can often be seen at music festivals and wherever you find great live music. An excellent dancer, she often teaches with her old pal, ROGER WEISS (who lives to two-step) and has been doing it for more years than he cares to tell. Together they give an enjoyable, easy-to-understand lesson in basic Texas Two-Step that will have you dancing like experts (almost) when the band starts to play.
