Klezmer dance tunes, Yiddish folk and theater songs, Israeli folk songs, Chassidic songs, Ladino songs, contemporary and traditional Roma songs, and Balkan pop—all with a high-energy approach with elements of rock, African music, and jazz.

The current line-up is:

Louis Schwartz: guitar and vocals
Allen Cole: clarinet
Cayman Mooney: accordion
Ken Kellner: guitar, bass, and vocals
Janine Turner: percussion and vocals
Dave Ellis: percussion

Local graphic designer, Bizhan Khodabandeh has designed a May Day 2012 patch for Richmond that we will be printing on April 27th at the Pre-May Day Show at the Wingnut.

The patches are a roughly 4″ x 4″ design so bring pieces of fabric a little larger than that if you want to make a patch, or whatever fabric or shirt you want the image on! We will also have some pre-made for folks too.

Bizhan’s other amazing work can be found online at www.mendedarrow.com  Bizhan has contributed a lot of work into Richmond May Day festivities over the past couple of years, designing previous bandannas and posters.

The Pre-May Day Show is on Friday April 27th at 7pm at 2005 Barton Avenue. There will be music and labor songs by Snail Party, Jake Mayday, and 2 other local acts. Sober, All Ages. No cover charge, but donations for Snail Party from Canada and merch from other bands encouraged.

 

Richmonder Jake Mayday has agreed to play the April 27th pre-May Day show at the Wingnut.

Friday April 27th at 7pm, get pumped for the International Worker’s day, May 1st.

Jake will be performing old labor songs to celebrate!
