Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band is an instrumental ensemble with an eclectic repertoire that combines the rich musical history of the circus and the vagabond peoples of Europe with the raw energy of free jazz and the irreverence and fun of today’s vaudeville for a sound that is somehow familiar yet like no other. Accompanying the band is an exuberant confederation of circus performers known as the Madcap Rumpus Society whose members include a rotating cast of aerialists, contortionists, acrobats, dancers, stilt walkers, jugglers and sideshow freaks.
I’m hosting the 1st Annual Soozapalooza at Precint on Saturday, January 23rd, 2010 in my neighborhood of Union Square, Somerville. It’s a few parts birthday party (I turn 37 on January 20th) and a celebration of my favorite music. And there will be bourbon. A lot of bourbon.
Some of my favorite Boston bands will be joining the festivities including Ryan Walsh from Hallelujah The Hills, Houndstone plus special guests Good Night, States will be in town from Pittsburgh. The Soozapalooza Supergroup featuring a group of Boston musicians will cover some of my favorite songs by The Cult, The Rolling Stones, LL Cool J, Edie Brickell & New Bohemians and more. So far the group includes Ashley Willard ofBoston Band Crush, Dan Nicklin of Old Jack, Johnny Arguedas of The Sneaks, Tim Atkins of Trucker Mouth — and more, to be announced soon.
The night kicks off at 8pm including my homemade chocolate truffles and coconut rum sorbet (who cares it’s January!) The first half of the music will be all about the indie and the pop with Ryan Walsh (Hallelujah The Hills) and Good Night States. The second half of the night is all about the rock and roll with the Soozapalooza Supergroup and Houndstone. Festivities will end with late night karaoke from 1-2AM.
