The Cabs are noted for their energetic and creative dance sets, but their true strength lies in concert. Their repertoire includes a lot of Dave's compositions, and the musicians are featured on much of his recording, Cracks and Shadows. Karen and Paul's new CD, Celtic Cafe, features some of the Belgian and Celtic repertoire. Andrea's solo recording Fire and Water is illustrative of the Appalachian and Scandinavian influences in the group's repertoire.

REMARKS: The Spanish Ballroom is a superb dance venue. Built in 1933 and restored in 2003, the art deco style ballroom has a wonderful sprung 7,700 SF maple floor which can easily handle 6 lines of contradancers.
This was the fifth dance of the evening. There were four lines of dancers before the break and three after.
