Duck for the Oyster this Sunday!


The Rookery is very pleased to be welcoming a first time band to our outdoor stage this weekend. But just to clarify. While this band may be new to us, they've actually been entertaining music and traditional dance fans throughout northwest Wisconsin going on 25 years now! 


Duck for the Oyster specializes in traditional music and dance, from 18th and 19th century America as well as a variety of dances from around the world. Since 1989 the band has been hosting and playing a regular dance series featuring squares, contras, reels, quadrilles, international, circle and round dances. Their dances are sprinkled with waltzes, polkas, schottisches, swing dances and music for clogging. In the time they have been together Duck for the Oyster has become one of the Midwest's best traditional dance bands. Their eclectic repertoire, compelling rhythms, and sheer sense of fun make them a favorite among dancers of all levels.

Now bear in mind the Rookery's outdoor "dance floor" currently consists of a few tufts of grass interspersed with uneven patches of bare dirt and weeds. Someday we hope to improve upon that. In the meantime, this inaugural performance by the Ducks will emphasize music over dancing.


Yet should you find yourself unable to resist the urge to jump around a bit please exercise due caution. Last summer a happy couple caught a heel and took a tumble while dancing the polka. They leapt to their feet smiling and hardly missing a beat. And fortunately no lawsuits ensued. We aim to keep it that way!


Duck for the Oyster. Live at the Rookery this Sunday. As usual our patio grill fires up at 1:30 and the music begins at 2. All seating is first come, first served. So if you expect to arrive a bit late you might want to bring along a couple of chairs.
