This event is all ages

Formed in late 1982, with their first gig in early 1983, the Quadra boys are rocking and rolling better than ever. Tight is the word generally used to describe these 2 sets of musical brothers…Rock solid harmonies, great musicianship, just like listening to the album....unless they decide to take a musical adventure mid-song! Rock from the 70’s right through the rock of today, Quadra will have you dancing, drinking, and down right misbehaving. So break out your bell bottoms, dig out the spandex, poof up your hair and let’s rock! Hey, when’s the last time YOU heard Hocus Pocus by Focus anyway?
Phil Abair Band
One of Vermont’s best bands for many years, the Phil Abair Band is well known for playing all styles of music and covering everyone’s favorites from the classics to current pop.
Featuring the amazing talents of Phil Abair on Keyboards and Vocals, Kenny Gulfield on Bass and Vocals, Mark Lurvey on Guitar and Vocals, Christine McConnell on Percussion and Vocals, and Todd Mulvey on Drums, there probably isn't a song from the last 50 years that they haven't covered at some point during their careers.

The various members have been in projects featuring Jon Fishman of Phish, The Grippo Funk Band, and local country star Jamie Lee Thurston.

With 4 great voices and the musical chops to support them, The Phil Abair Band will keep the dance floor full and have a blast doing it.
Mr. French
Mr. French has been performing throughout Vermont and New England for 18 years, extolling the virtues of classic rock. While the band’s forte is Led Zeppelin, they cover a very wide range of popular dance music, from Stevie Wonder to Aerosmith. Mr. French is based in Burlington, VT.

Oxo (Jimmy Carter) has been a favorite in the area and throughout New England for many years. Oxo is an excellent bassist/singer, guitarist and a warm human being. Jeff Wheel has played in numerous bands, toured the US and Canada with the southern band, The Town Criers and played and recorded with various rock and jazz bands including a bass playing stint with The Queen City Jazz Quintet. Tim O’brien has performed in several area bands and drives Mr. French with influences from Keith Moon, John Bonham, Ginger Baker and Mitch Mitchell on a never-ending array of vintage Premier and Slingerland drums. Buddha (Gary Norful) shines on the keys and vocals but is equally adept at guitar, trumpet, accordion and train whistle. Buddha also performs regularly in Buddha Food Group.

Mr. French will rock you to the bone, and leave a smile on your face the entire time.
