Plumas Arts plans Leap Year dance with Rigmarole

Plumas Arts is offering an event to bring a smile to your face as you look out your window on these wintry days.    Save Saturday, Feb. 29, for a very special Leap Year day dance. It will be so great it can only happen every four years!

Join the community at the Quincy Veteran’s Hall, 274 Lawrence St., when Rigmarole comes back to town with its own unique blend of rock, funk, jazz, and classical fusion to help shake off those cabin fever blues.

“Rigmarole has been a big hit at several Plumas Arts events over the last couple of years and this return performance has been in response to popular demand,” says Roxanne Valladao Plumas Arts Executive Director. “Many of us know Rigmarole as ‘Tanner’s Band and we always appreciate a change to bring him home to play for us.’”

Tanner Johns was born and grew up here as an active part of the local music scene with his parents Dave Johns and Shelley Miller. Tanner went off to college to become a music teacher and that is where he met the members of the band as they progressed through the music education and performance department at CSU, Chico.

Their friendships were maintained after college and, as they have gravitated closer and closer to Chico, decided to start playing music together again.

Band members are Bill Hepworth on electric guitar and banjo, Austin King on drums, Ayako Nakamura plays trumpet, Seth Snyder brings high powered vocals and additional percussion, Ryan Heimlich on electric bass, Casson Scowcroft plays Trombone and Johns plays tenor saxophone.

Admission to the dance is $20 in advance or at the door. Plumas Arts members can get a pre-sale discount ticket at $15 if they purchase by Friday, Feb. 28. Tickets went on sale Feb. 11.
