The Portland Megaband is an all-volunteer contra dance band open to any musician on any acoustic instrument at any level of experience. The band plays a benefit dance once a year (usually the second Saturday in March) and every other year at the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle. Although tune sets here have been edited to fit the time allotment of the CD, many transitions within and between tunes have been left intact to retain the feel and flow of an actual Megaband dance. We hope that the listener will experience this same energy and excitement.
