CD Release Party

Stories from the Come Over Album Release & Close Vermont Yankee Party

This past summer, Patty Carpenter and the Dysfunctional Family Jazz Band held a launch party for their new CD,Come Over, at the Organ Barn at Tree Frog Farm in Guilford, Vermont. In addition to a premiere performance of the new album, including spoken word sections and narrative with Verandah Porche, the event included a summer’s picnic and a musical ramble and dance concert featuring some of the best musicians from Boston, New York and the local area.

The release party was a benefit in support of the efforts of the Vermont Citizens Awareness Network (VCAN) to close the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Plant.
