In Studio: Xylopholks

Monday, May 09, 2011

Street musicians have to find ways to grab your attention. If you’ve seen the Xylopholks before in the subway or at the Union Square farmer’s market, you probably haven’t forgotten them. The ensemble plays novelty ragtime music from the 1920s – while wearing furry animal costumes. They join guest host Jeff Spurgeon of WQXR to play live in our studio.

Hi Randy from Clinton Hill - YES! We do cocktail hours - or any hours - Thanks for listening - be in touch should you be having a wedding or know someone who needs some fuzzy ragtime entertainment. Best, Jon/Skunky

You guys are fantastic! Even without the visuals. I will be wandering the subways aimlessly but with an ear out to find you. Thanks.

Do you do weddings? I'm thinking cocktail hour.

Xylopholks must hire a dance troupe, give them skeleton costumes that glow in the dark, write a score for them, and perform it on Halloween.
