Meet Toss the Possum!

Toss the Possum is Laura Zisette on keyboard and Rob Zisette on fiddle/percussion/vocals. This duo regularly hears from surprised listeners that they thought there were more than two on stage. They play with high energy and a big sound, but also create lyrical magic on smooth sets. Their goal is to give the dancers the best experience possible. You might hear some fun rock-n-roll inserts. You will enjoy a lot of creativity, some humor and great passion with this band.

Toss the Possum is also known for their waltzes. They have written over 100 waltzes in all styles and frequently play for waltz events. Finally, Rob loves to dance and teaches dance workshops for waltz, swing, blues and contra styles. Rob and Laura enjoy teaching band workshops, and Laura teaches contra piano workshops and offers private sessions online.
