Toss the Possum

Toss the Possum is a family band with a uniquely eclectic style all their own. You will hear many musical influences in their approach to fiddle tunes including Celtic, Appalachian, Jazz, French Canadian and Rock n’ Roll. Their sound ranges from smooth and lyrical to driving and energetic. Hear Rob Zisette bend and sing on his acoustic fiddle and sizzle on his electric fiddle. Add to that his sense of humor, his improv looping, fantastic beat boxing, vocals and other surprises with Laura Zisette backing it all up on keyboard, and you’ve got a band that is ready to create some magic with the caller and the dancers!
Joining Toss the Possum is guest Bonnie Insull, a leading light of the Southern California English and contra scenes. With a unique jazzy sound and foot percussion, she’s a great complement to the band.
Toss the Possum is also known for their beautiful original waltzes. Enjoy couple dancing to this wonderful band. In addition to waltzes, this group of musicians offer many styles of couple dancing including swing, folk styles such as Hambo and Schottische, and Tango.
