We’ll be playing Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the Moonlight in Vermont Tango Weekend in historic Brandon, VT. There will be workshops with great instructors, performances, plenty of dancing, and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Don’t miss the Musicality Workshop with Orquesta Sin Trabajo on Saturday, Sept 12th.
We’ve got a number of exciting events coming up this weekend. First, we’re playing a concert this Friday, December 5, at Dance Union in Somerville.
After the concert, we will host and play live tango music at Milonga Nueva. Saturday we hit the road, performing for dancers in Hartford, CT, and Sunday we’ll play in Amherst, MA. Check out our Events Calendar for more information.
We had a blast playing for Boston dancers last night at Milonga Nueva! Kara Wenham and Javier Antar were in town teaching workshops, and they performed to our music at the milonga. Those guys bring tremendous elegance, grace, and musicality to their dancing, and it was a privilege to play for them. We’ve got video of the songs we played on the Watch and Listen page.
OST whirled into western MA this past weekend, performing and teaching at the Five Colleges (thanks to Daniel Trenner for bringing us back!). On Saturday, Mari and Tilly led a workshop at Mt. Holyoke College called “Take it Apart and See How It Works: Tango Music From The Inside”, for musicians and dancers alike. Then on Sunday, the fun moved to Amherst College. Tilly and Carlos taught dance workshops before the band’s performance at the crowning milonga that evening. In between the band’s first and second sets, Carlos and Tilly got changed into flashier attire and performed as the featured dancers! Talk about multitasking—they went right back onto the bandstand after dancing up a storm, to roaring applause. Is it fair to call OST a festival in a box yet?
This Saturday, OST presents a unique event in West Acton, MA: Carlos and Tilly will teach a dance workshop for beginner/intermediate dancers, and then we will play a show, with both a floor for dancing and seats for listening. We’re calling it “An Evening in Argentina: Tango For All”. Come out and help us spread the tango joy! For more information, check out the event page on Facebook.
We are excited and honored to be performing at Amherst College Tango Club’s Spring Milonga, hosted by the great Daniel Trenner. We will be playing the whole night! Dancing starts at 7 pm and goes until 10 pm, featuring live performance by Armando and Nuria too! Plus, we’ll have copies of our new CD, ¡Viva Tango!
Due to unforeseen events in Boston and the unexpected lockdown of our city, OST’s CD Release Party has been pushed to a later date. We’re still working on confirming the specifics, but as soon as we have a new one on the calendar, we will let you know! Meanwhile, take our OST Insider Quiz, to see how many of the band’s inside jokes and catch-phrases you know.
This weekend, OST will be at Yale Tango Fest! We are pumped! We will be performing at the Saturday night “all-nighter” milonga. If you haven’t registered already, do so soon! Special bonus: we will have a handful of pre-release copies of our new album, ¡Viva Tango! This is the only time you’ll be able to get a copy before our CD release party, so come get yours and get it signed by the band!
