Nor'easter

toe-tappin', foot-stompin', shoe-shufflin', heel-clickin', booty-shakin'

Boston-based band Nor’easter delights in bringing infectious, uplifting music to dance floors throughout the country.

We’ve been wearing out your new Nor’easter CD, playing it over and over again. You folks did a wonderful job with this…. This is a really fun recording and I expect it’ll have a long and happy life with everyone who is lucky enough to discover it!
