Dillweed band: The Leader in Old Timey Shenanigans
Two things that Dillweed band members (Eric Weit, Kim “Redd” Weit, & Boney Fingers) love is 1) supporting the non-profit Music for Everyone organization and, 2) getting audience members involved with its musical shenanigans.
At the Music for Everyone Tellus Takeover fundraiser at Tellus360, Dillweed debuted the impromptu and ever-changing Dillweed Dillzoo Orchestra by challenging audience members to an epic banjo vs. kazoo (Dillzoo) musical battle.
Afterward the battle, Dillweed and the Dillweed Dillzoo Orchestra made up with a conciliatory collaboration on “You Are My Sunshine,” and participants were allowed to keep their Dillzoos ($1999.00 value) and encouraged to keep up their rigorous practice schedules for future performances.
