|Rus'kyj Muzikanty with Jerry Jumba|
Rus'kyj Muzikanty (http://www.Ruskyjmuzikanty.com) provided lively music throughout the evening. This folk group, which specializes in authentic Rusyn melodies, includes Jerry Jumba on accordion, Bob Bartko on acoustic guitar, Mike Liberatore on electric guitar, Dana Leasure on violin (fiddle to you Charlie Daniels fans), Brian Bartko on cymbali, and a guest appearance by a percussionist whose name I would be happy to mention had he given it to me. Dean Poloka set up the sound system and stepped in with his mandolin whenever he wasn't dancing.
