Ballet with a side of Rock please

One of the most exhilarating things about Stillwater Artsapalooza is that you can “choose your own adventure” of artists!  Heck, you can leave the exuberant dance performance by Robinson Ballet at 7:40p.m., head to Harvest Moon for an insightful and moving poetry reading at 8:00p.m. and then head to the Asa Adams Elementary School for a knock-your- socks-off rock concert by the Blast Addicts at 9:00p.m.!   And those are just a three of the 50 artists from which you’ll be able to choose!

We are so excited that Robinson Ballet and the Blast Addicts have agreed to be two of our groups featured at Stillwater Artsapalooza!  Read on for more information about these fantastic acts!

Robinson Ballet was founded in 1977 and is a highly respected dance company that enhances our community by reaching out to educate, inspire, and involve people of all ages by providing opportunities to create and experience quality dance.

Robinson Ballet is based in Bangor, Maine and will be giving a performance entitled “The Kitchen Sink” for Stillwater Artsapalooza at the Church of Universal Fellowship from 7:00-7:40 p.m. on Saturday, June 25, 2011.

The “Kitchen Sink” is a series of short dances highlighting the versatility of the company and its dancers.  This quirky lighthearted performance blurs the conventional forms of dance to create pieces that show the diversity of the Robinson Ballet as well as to introduce dancers and choreographers from the School of Robinson Ballet to the community.  For more information about the fabulous programming and classes Robinson Ballet provides please visit: http://www.robinsonballet.org

The Blast Addicts will be performing for Stillwater Artsapalooza at Asa Adams Elementary School from 9:00p.m. to 9:40p.m.  They have been rocking out in this area for a year now and are a hard hitting, high energy Rock/Pop/Blues band featuring the amazing vocalist Jason Simpson, guitarist Mike Curtis, bassist Athion Lewey, and drummer Ron Douglass.  They play a wide range of music including; Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, Lady Gaga, Pink, Stevie Ray Vaughan, ACDC, Rihanna, Heart, Queen and many more great songs, and every song is a dance hit, so get ready to get your groove on!

The Blast Addicts have been together for one year and have played to great acclaim all over Central and Coastal Maine. In the Bangor area they can be seen playing regularly at Ipanema Bar & Grill, Raena’s Pub, Carolina Sports & Spirits, and Benjamin’s on Franklin. They’ll be coming to us straight from the Bangor Gay Pride Festival earlier in the day on June 25th, and will be headlining the Eastport 4th of July Festival for two nights, July 2nd and 3rd, and then will be back in Orono to play Webster Park on July 6th, so, if you like what you hear at Stillwater Artsapalooza there will be quite a few more chances this summer for you to catch this awesome band.
