DUMMERSTON- On Saturday, December 21, join friends and neighbors to celebrate the 2013 Winter Solstice with Simba at the Evening Star Grange. As the days get shorter and colder, it is time to dust off those dancing shoes and heat up the first evening of winter and longest night. This annual party is a night of drumming, dancing, music, and fun for the entire community. All ages are invited. The event is from 7 to 11 pm.

Simba has been together 24 years, playing weddings, parties, summer concerts, and special events, but the Solstice Dance Party is a highlight for the band and for the dancers who attend. The band will play music to make you move: funk, reggae, latin, world beat, soca-calypso, ska, jazz, and blues and features blazing horns and scorching percussion.

The members of Simba are: Bob Stabach – sax and flute; Dan DeWalt – keyboard, steel drum, and trombone; Wim Auer – bass; Charlie Schneeweis – trumpet and vocals; Steve Sonntag – trumpet and percussion; Derrik Jordan – guitar, keyboard, percussion, violin and vocals; Steve Leicach – congas and talking drum; Johnny Yuma – drums and vocals.

Rupa Cousins will lead a movement meditation to celebrate the return of the light.

The Evening Star Grange is located at the intersection of East and West Road, Bunker Road, and Middle Road. Admission is $10, with a family maximum of $25.
