City Stompers Nicole Ball and Sara Rowbottom competed in the 15th Annual Spoke the Hub Winter Follies on January 29th & 30th. Performing with them was the Melody Allegra Band with Melody Allegra Berger on fiddle, Christian Apuzzo on guitar, Larry Berger on bass (first night), and Dan Whitener on banjo (second night).

The entire ensemble gave a show-stopping performance! We're waiting to hear the voting results that will determine which of the more than 30 acts that performed will be awarded first place. Stay tuned!

The City Stompers were enthusiastically received in Long Beach this past Sunday when they joined the Melody Allegra Band in performance at the Kickin' Country Eclectic Music Festival. Sara Rowbottom and Nicole Ball wowed the audience with a routine they worked up to perfection over the past few weeks, Kathy Grabarczyk and Daniela Muhling joined them onstage for freestyle flatfooting, and Artistic Director Megan Downes captivated everyone with her fleet footwork and dazzling stage presence.

The musical talent was outstanding: fiddler Melody Allegra Berger led the band, with her bandmate from Gangstagrass, Daniel Whitener on guitar and Larry Cook on bass. Melody even threw in some footwork while she fiddled!

The Melody Allegra Band with Melody Allegra & Dan Whitener of Gangstagrass, and Skip Ward of Tony Trischka's band played, Megan Downes called the dances, and the City Stompers made lots of new dancing friends! Our next public appearance will be at Porch Stomp on September 20. Come out and dance with us!

The fun will continue on Sunday, June 21st when the City Stompers will take part in Porch Stomp on Governors Island, a featured program of Make Music New York. Come dance with us!
