      -Quote from our review in Sing Out! magazine: "There are many contra dance bands that attempt to put a new spin on the music; not all are up for the challenge. Hu$hmoney, however, is comprised of excellent musicians with a wonderfully creative flair. I can just see the dancers cheering with terpsichorean delight!"
