Bainbridge Performing Arts presents a record-release party with Paundy at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15.

Paundy, the internationally acclaimed seven-piece instrumental band, is known for its fun, upbeat live shows and includes local musicians Paul Burback, Andy Miller, Tony Dattilo, Chad Channing, Drew McCabe, Leif Utne and Justine Jeanotte. Inspired by film/TV music as well as rock from the '70s and '80s, all of the band members are multi-instrumentalists and often trade instruments that include children’s toys for percussion.

They have three self-produced albums: "Here’s Roebuck," "Are you My Mother?" and "In Through the Cat Door." They toured Poland, Germany and the Netherlands in February 2010.

The band started with Burback and Miller making music late at night for nobody but themselves. Meanwhile Dattilo was making films late at night for nobody but himself. The three of them got together and Paundy just grew from there.

“We have been very fortunate with the way the community has embraced whatever it is we are doing. Which brings me to ask, what the [heck] ARE we doing?” Burback said.

Join Paundy for their record release party and a night of film and music at BPA.

Tickets are $15 for adults, and $12 for seniors, students, youth, military and teachers, and may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA, 200 Madison Ave. North.
