We are happy to announce that Raquy and the Cavemen will be coming back for the third year in a row to help raise funds for the Vegan Bus!

Raquy has traveled to and immersed herself in the musical cultures of the Middle East, Egypt and India. Raquy performs with the Dumbek (Arabic hand drum) and the Iranian Kamanche, similar to a violin.

The show will begin with performances by local musicians and belly dancers. Musicians will include Amanda Turk, who studies with Raquy, as well as Christopher Phillips, Sharon Arslanian, & Stephen Malachite. Dancers include Sugati Phillips, Felicia Malachite and Sahina.
