Blending sweet Irish fiddle, Scottish drive, and harmonic improvisation, ContraPositive brings the best of contemporary contra styles. Caller Alex Deis-Lauby's smooth voice, clear teaching style and engaging dance selections delight dancers from coast to coast.
Matt Diaz -- guitar and other -- one of NYC's most sought-after Irish session guitarists, mixing rhythmic drive with an ever-changing harmonic structure
Joe de Paolo -- drums -- a background in funk, jazz, and fusion mixed with a love of dancing to lead Joe into several of contra's best-loved bands
Matthew Christian -- fiddle, flute, whistle -- a fourth-generation contra dancer who's recently snuck into the NYC Irish scene with a bold willingness to rethink traditional tunes
