KEVIN MONKO writes the quirky songs and offers vocal stylings and ham-handed guitar. The unpredictable raging sensualist BILL FERGUSSON keeps it lively, playing mandolin, bassouki (only spelled right), and sometimes (reluctantly) guitar. He’ll also provide an occasional pony ride for a lucky fan. NED SONSTEIN smacks the drums when he isn’t busy with Martha Graham Cracker or The Roddenberries or Creem Circus or Candy Volcano. Ray Long, our no-longer secret weapon, takes time from his 11 other projects (Ray Long Band, Candy Volcano, The Roddenberries, etc.) to wield the trombone and caress the keys, while the uber-gifted JOHN CUNNINGHAM is now throttling the bass for us, with which we are thrilled beyond description.

Candy Volcano
The supergroup Candy Volcano was formed merging lava-hot talent and taffy-sweet skills from all over the region. It’s a festive tribute to the music of the 1970’s glam rock era served to you on a glittering platter by an extensive cast of colorful performers.¬†25+ singers and musicians perform works by David Bowie, T Rex,Mott the Hoople, Sweet, Lou Reed, NY Dolls, even Queen, Alice Cooper, and whatever strikes their fancy. They’re not impersonating anyone; they’re playing stellar versions of great songs in a stratospheric atmosphere of rocking high-spirited fun.

Candy Volcano is a street-walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm.
Candy Volcano is an alligator, it’s a mama papa coming for you.
Candy Volcano is a prima-ballerina on a Spring afternoon.
