Joel Laviolette & Rattletree
Joel Laviolette & Rattletree offer a variety of offerings catering to the specific needs of the event. Rattletree is a must-see multi-sensory live show experience of electronic percussion and one-of-a-kind hand-built African marimbas triggering driving synth sounds, bursts of color, and dynamic live video projection. Rattletree primarily plays evening festivals and venues where their multimedia art experience and captivating electronic sounds shine. Kupira Marimba is their highly versatile fully acoustic family-friendly offering. Kupira's music creates a foot-stomping, heart-pounding, and hand clapping experience for people of all ages. Laviolette has over 25 years of experience studying and playing traditional music with his teachers in Zimbabwe. Kupira Marimba brings joy and cultural experience to schools, libraries, museums, city concert series, and outdoor community festivals. Joel Laviolette also offers solo interactive multi-media performances that incorporate live music, interactive video projection mapping, and audience participation. These installations are a big hit at lighted-arts festivals, museums, and art galleries. All performances may include an optional hands-on workshop or educational demonstration/assembly. Every show is customized to the needs of the presenter, and we are excited to make your next event something that people will be talking about for years! Photo by Ismael Quintanilla III.
