Thursday night in the Centennial Ballroom (Hyatt) was the area to be in. The Aeronauts, a high energy Circus-Gypsy-Pop Steampunk band, was rocking the house to get Dragon*Con started. The band came complete with belly dancers, violins, balloons, costumes, guitar solos, and bass tapping, sultry falsettos.
The four-member band consists of Brandt Cooly, Jules Charlemagne, Becky Conway, and Brian Smith. It was obvious they were comfortable with each other and performing in front of crowds. So comfortable, in fact, Jules decided to strip down to his skivvies on stage while he continued playing the drums. The other three laughed and kept dancing while playing.
Watching the band perform was a lot of fun. The audience was caught up in the melee and danced right along with the band.
The Aeronauts will perform again Saturday 5PM on the Concourse (Hyatt). Come enjoy and have fun!
