The Rabbbits Band comes to Towne Crier for a magical evening in Delusionville! Conceived by Ron English as an “Animal Farm” meets “Alice in Wonderland” rock opera, the Rabbbits Band will play a selection of compositions introducing the quirky inhabitants and their adventures in the magical underground world known as Delusionville. In addition, from 6 to 7 p.m., there will be a free Ron English art exhibit featuring original artwork depicting the surroundings, events and characters of Delusionville.
The Rabbbits Band consists of three musical co-writers:
World-renowned artist Ron English has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images across all categories of culture. Follow Ron's dreamscapes and life-simulating drama.

Lead vocalist Russ Cusick is a Juilliard-trained opera singer and veteran stage performer, also runs one of Beacon’s most respected multi-media art galleries, The Russell Cusick Gallery.

Very special guests include: Rhiannon Grace Parsaca, a senior at Beacon High School, where she has been seen on stage as Peter in the Beacon Player’s 2016 production of “Peter Pan,” and most recently as Rizzo in “Grease.” She loves to make her friends laugh by making up silly songs on the ukelele. Rowan Faith Parsaca is a sixth-grade Principal’s Honor Roll Student, and will be representing the Beacon City School District in the 2017 Elementary All-County Music Festival at the end of February. She also competes state-wide as a USAG Gold-Level gymnast, loves to draw, play piano and is a good friend and teammate.
Beacon’s own Ate Bit is considered one of the seminal bands in the much lauded Hudson Valley Power Punk scene. Be prepared to ROCK!
