FootLoose is a fun, creative and high energy band. The FootLoose sound draws from Celtic, Quebecois, southern old time, jazz and classical music influences. Performing for New England-style contra dances and in concert, FootLoose has become a highly respected and sought after band, playing at numerous contra dance festivals and week-long dance camps throughout the United States.
Although the primary purpose of FootLoose is to rock the socks off of contra dancers, the band also performs English country dance, tango, waltz, hambo, schottische, zwiefacher, and Scottish country dance music.
In concert, FootLoose members combine a technical mastery of their instruments with a passion for their playing, infusing new life into past traditions. Their repertoire of both songs and instrumental pieces draws from many sources, including tunes of the Celtic cultures, the old time sounds of the American south, swing musettes of Paris, sophisticated Brazilian choros and original compositions.
FootLoose is David Coe playing fiddle, David DiGiuseppe on accordion, Pete Campbell on piano, and percussionist Jim Roberts.
