Testimonials

"Lilly, Neil, and Joe of Party of Three are always a joy to work with. I've called to their fabulous music at different dances, and have been impressed with both their technical chops and attentiveness to the dancers. They bring a rich sonic soundscape for the dancers to explore, while providing solid anchoring to keep everyone together. I always look forward to our next gig together."
Luke Donforth, Caller and Dance Organizer.


"I am listening to Party of Three's recording. It is so terrific! Many congratulations. I'm very jealous of Neil's skills -you are lucky to have him. Keep up the great work and so happy to see you last Saturday." Best,
Cynthia Shaw, Musician


"Party of Three is a superb, exciting contra dance band! As a dance organizer, I would (and do) hire them in a heartbeat. As a caller and dancer, I found their music so exciting that it prompted me to ask if I could tour with them for a bunch of gigs. That's exciting music. Lilly and Neil are musical (as well as actual) siblings, so in tune with each other that it's eerie and sensational. Joe's drumming is tasteful. The combination is superb.
I highly recommend this trio!"
Peter Stix, Caller and Dance Organizer


"From both a calling and dancing perspective, I cannot say enough good things about this band. The repertoire is large and the musicianship is tight, but still full of the youthful exuberance that just makes it practically impossible not to dance. If you cannot dance to them in person, get their CD - you will be hearing the next big thing in contra dancing."
Greg Frock , Caller


"This CD makes me dance and then listen: Always a surprise, the jazz piano and then an incredible fiddling and suddenly a beautiful soulful waltz - a true party that flows from musical place to place."
Merle Mceldowney, Dance Organizer


“Party of Three is an amazing combination of three masters of traditional and contemporary contra dance music. When I hear them I'm instantly dancing and then stopped in my tracks by what they manage to bring out in their music. Their CD is rich with original tunes and moving pieces. You've got to hear them.“
Bill Quern, Musician, Dance Instructor, and Dance Organizer
