Nature- Environment,
Nature- Environment
For the Blue Mule Band the message is clear; to bring the unique sound of mulegrass to audiences everywhere. While Webster might not be able to define MuleGrass, The Blue Mule Band knows exactly what it is: an eclectic mix of traditional bluegrass and upbeat folk music played amid moments of humor and a lot of fun. Awash in harmonies and unique style, the sound of The Blue Mule Band sets the group apart from other bluegrass bands. Born out of jam sessions at Fosters Irish Pub in Ellicottville New York, the Cattaraugus County based band was officially formed in December 2003. In 2004, The Blue Mule Band and 36 fans, took their music for a weeklong pub tour of Ireland. Highlights of the trip was a spot on the Cormac McConnell Show. Members were interviewed and played three songs live on National Radio. The genuine interaction between the members and the audience has become a trademark and keeps folks coming back. Comittment to continuing The Blue Mule Band's unique sound and ex-panding original music continually drive the group in new directions.Contact at:@thebluemuleband@gmail.com or visit their web site @www.thebluemuleband.com

Montalbine, Diane Out Of My Dreams- Diane Perry-Jazz violin and vocals Music
I am a Juilliard-trained classical violinist who has been performing jazz for over 20 years. I currently am doing a music program suitable for all ages, with either piano or keyboard, (or guitar) and prefer to also add bass, and drums, or a guest instrumentalist as well. The program is called Out Of My Dreams after the title of my new CD, and I perform standards and not-so-standard songs from the canon of the American Popular Songbook, as well as originals. I sing and play jazz violin, and even occasionally sneak in a classical piece for fun. Some of the songs are presented in such a way that people can sing along if they wish, and it is designed to be entertaining and fun for the audience, not merely a concert where quiet reigns, and I like to use humor and stories of where the songs came from to enrich the program.
