Simba has been together 24 years, playing weddings, parties, summer concerts, and special events, but the Solstice Dance Party is a highlight for the band and for the dancers who attend. The band will play music to make you move: funk, reggae, latin, world beat, soca-calypso, ska, jazz, and blues and features blazing horns and scorching percussion.
The members of Simba are: Bob Stabach – sax and flute; Dan DeWalt – keyboard, steel drum, and trombone; Wim Auer – bass; Charlie Schneeweis – trumpet and vocals; Steve Sonntag – trumpet and percussion; Derrik Jordan – guitar, keyboard, percussion, violin and vocals; Steve Leicach – congas and talking drum; Johnny Yuma – drums and vocals.
Rupa Cousins will lead a movement meditation to celebrate the return of the light.
The Evening Star Grange is located at the intersection of East and West Road, Bunker Road, and Middle Road. Admission is $10, with a family maximum of $25.
