“Strange One’s Ball”
“Strange One’s Ball”
GREENFIELD, MA- Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center is proud to present the second annual “Strange One’s Ball” featuring the live music of Bella’s Bartok, Arc Iris, and Mammal Dap on Sunday, December 31, at 8 pm.

Where else can one find Muppets, monsters, and wonder-filled mayhem? For one night and one only, Bella’s Bartok, Arc Iris, and Mammal Dap will grace the stage to deliver a show of spontaneously epic proportions. This is a costumed event with a Muppets theme (optional). Come prepared, come wild, and unfettered.

Inspired by elements of vaudeville and centuries of street performance, Northampton-based Bella’s Bartok delivers a passionate kaleidoscope of sound. The songs are born of Americana and the folk music of their immigrant grandparents, blended with the joy of a particular brand of pop sensibility. Their performances are at once a primal stand against oppression and a declaration of joy in the face of adversity. From quiet reflections on loss, to the howl of justice in four-part harmony, Bella’s Bartok sonically and lyrically delivers a sweaty, soulful dance-party that is sure to leave the audience happily breathless.

The concert will be held at Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center, 289 Main Street. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Advance tickets are $17 and available at http://hawksandreed.com (day of show tickets will be $20).
