While on a galactic survey mission
in 2006 from their home planet of Gammalon, members of Dance
Band deduced that Earth had a lack of exciting music. They
immediately set aside time from their mission to ensure the
planet is introduced to the benefits of “booty groovement.”
Through “baby maker shakin’,
zombie defending and fantabulous dance-off gyration,”
Dance Band saved the earthlings at Geek Prom 2008 from the
“meek black hole of boredom.”
In 2007, Twin Cities weekly
newspaper City Pages named Dance Band the Best Live
Act in the area. Three months before its Geek Prom appearance,
Dance Band embarked on its first Duluth mission, rocking the
Diorama-rama, an all-diorama art show at the Emerson Cooperative.
Jive defender and vocalist
Captain Octagon fronts the five-piece Dance Band. He teams
with a squad of booty-blasting musicians, including the Perfect
Beat on drums, the Philanderer on bass, the Chop on guitar
and Spacebar on keyboard.
Dance Bands first earthly album
is Dance Band Returns From the Land After Tomorrow.
Quoth the band: “If you
don’t move, if you can’t orbit your hips ’round
the sun, planet Earth will destruct in ... 3 ... 2 ... 1.”
