Tribal Legacy
Thursday, February 3, 2005

Tribal Legacy exhibits a distinct party sound that starts heads bobbin’, fingers snappin’, and feet dancin’. Fusing reggae and soca with funk, hip-hop, and rock rhythms has given the band their own identity. With more than ten years experience in various styles of music under their belts, they have performed at the Apollo Theater, New York City’s First Night celebration, and Madison Square Garden. Their performances are delivered with such energy that they leave their audiences begging for more! One tribe…one vibe.

 

Barley Juice

Barley Juice
Irish/Celtic Band
Thursday, March 3, 2005
7:00 p.m.
Conference Center, Lower Level, Main Classroom Building
Ireland has been called the land of the “happy war songs” and “sad love songs” and no one sings and celebrates the music of old Ireland quite like Barley Juice. They are famous for their signature Irish/Celtic sound. Their vast repertoire includes original and traditional work songs, soft and gentle love songs, rousing pub songs, ballads, and just plain joviality. Adored for their dedication to the preservation of the fine “drinkin’, fightin’, courtin’, dyin’, and sailin’ songs of the Emerald Isle, every day is St. Patrick’s Day when Barley Juice takes the stage.

Taikoza is a Japanese percussion group that uses powerful rhythms of the taiko drums to create an electrifying energy that carries audiences in a new dimension of excitement. The taiko is a large, barrel-like drum that can fill the air with the sounds of rolling thunder. Drawing from Japan’s rich tradition of music and performance, Taikoza has created a new sound using a variety of instruments. In addition to drums of assorted sizes, Taikoza incorporates the shakuhachi, the fue (both are bamboo flutes) and the koto (a thirteen stringed instrument) to create a new dimension and a powerful impact on the audience. Taikoza has performed for numerous audiences in North America and Europe. This is a unique event you won’t want to miss!
