After experiencing the best that Arlington has to offer at Town Day, head over to GARAGE BAND, an After Party organized by Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture and hosted by Arlington Service Station. Bring your dancing shoes to fully enjoy a diverse program of swing, Latin, and Japanese musical traditions performed by master musicians in the town’s hippest new open-air venue for the arts – an old-time neighborhood garage covered with polka dots!
ACAC is grateful to our sponsors, Arlington Service Station and Column Health, for bringing these amazing talents to the party:
A dynamic ensemble performing and preserving a traditional Japanese form of drumming, based in Arlington.
Dan Fox Foxtet
Arlington band leader and educator Dan Fox of numerous ensembles and the Morningside Music School brings a swing band dedicated to getting folks on the dance floor!
A panoply of Latin/Caribbean styles, Grupo Fantasia is the brainchild of Dominican multi-instrumentalist Angel Wagner. With Grupo Fantasia, Wagner and his band demonstrate a mastery of Latin music through the styles of merengue, salsa, Latin jazz, cumbia, bachata and vallenato. When he isn’t performing at shows, Wagner heads the Angel Wagner Musical Workshop, providing students with hands-on lessons in the sounds of the Caribbean and Latin America.
