Coming To The Mole Hill Theatre: The Funk Sounds of VT Shakedown!

ALSTEAD, NEW HAMPSHIRE - The Mole Hill Theatre kicks off the spring season with "VT Shakedown," an amazing, Afrobeat/Funk band with twists of jazz and reggae all about. Their influences include such talents as Fela Kuti, Sly and the Family Stone, James Brown, Osibisi and Antibalas. You'll get a big sound (and much enjoyment) from this group's tight rhythm section, rippin' horn section, polyrhythmic guitar and funked up drums. They sing too!

How about we all give this band from across the river a neighborly welcome and big turnout? Don't be a stick in the mud; get off your keister and get down at the Mole Hill!
