Eric Mayson & The DaNCEBUMS
08:30 to 10:30

Known as the “poster child of entropy”, it’s no surprise that Eric Mayson’s music and live performance is a journey from disbelief into knowing and back again. He understands music as a way to move through space. In an aerial shot, Mayson’s wide-ranging style stretches from minimalist electropop to smooth R&B, progressive soul, and straight hip-hop, while visiting grinning pop, rock and roll, and operatic arrangements.

DaNCEBUMS is Kara Motta, Maggie Zepp, Karen McMenamy, Eben Kowler, and Margaret Johnson; with Eric Mayson on the keys and vocals, and percussionist Toby Ramaswamey. Together they have a fresh new approach to choreography that brings the excitement and vitality of your favorite band to dance. DaNCEBUMS performs their work primarily in bars, music venues, and parties. Dubbed “the best dance party in town”, their work straddles the arty and the party as they knowingly move between precise technique and casual pop sensibility. In a search for radical joy, they embrace the awkward, conjure nostalgia, and contemplate bright futures. Their crowd-pleasing performance is imbued with humor, groove, exertion, and extreme bliss.
