The North Texas Traditional Dance Society's
17th Annual Spring Contra Dance Weekend

Latter Day Lizards

Joseph Pimentel
calling to the music of

and special guest Stuart Kenney (bass)

As a popular caller at dance events throughout the country, Joseph draws on a broad repertoire of contra, English country, and community dances. His calling combines clear teaching, discriminating taste in dances, and respect for tradition. He is the author of numerous popular contra dances which have also found their way around the country.

The Lizards are a New England based dance band featuring a trio of musicians fervent with the desire and talent to ignite flames under dancing feet. With a wide ranging and hopelessly eclectic repertoire including everything from Irish and Scottish traditional jigs and reels to Balkan, blues and swing tunes (often juxtaposed next to each other) the Latter Day Lizards bring excellent musicianship, playfulness, drama and unrelentingly infectious rhythm to their dance performances.
