24 WORDS, the equal rights rock musical
We are the on stage house band for this new rock musical about equality. Re-joining us on guitar for the project is our former accordion player, Ian Knox. 24 Words is a wild 90-minute, 200-year odyssey to equality from the Revolutionary War to the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment in 1972. The diverse ensemble shares the story through 20 original songs and multiple musical eras of fife-and-drum, swing, pop, folk, rock, glam, and rap.
There will be 4 performances throughout March during Women's History Month. The title references the length of the Equal Rights Amendment, passed by Congress but never ratified by the States: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” A number of groups will be represented at all performances to share information about the continuing fight to right this wrong.
There will be some special guests in attendance for Opening Night on Monday, March 7th, and the show is listed as an International Women’s Day event on Tuesday, March 8th. Come for a great show, meet some great people, and get connected to most radical idea on earth: We are Equal.
