Duck for the Oyster Dance in Hayward

Hayward, WI – Duck for the Oyster, the north woods’ premier traditional dance band, will be celebrating 25 years of community dances at the HACIL Charter School on Highway 77 next to Retreat Home Furnishings, this Saturday, October 11, starting at 7:30 pm. The dance, co-sponsored by the school (, is part of a celebration of the band’s twenty five year history of Roots Dancing, toe tapping music, and community. In the twenty five years that Duck for the Oyster has been together they have played and led hundreds of dances at community events, schools, festivals, weddings and family gatherings throughout the upper Midwest. They were even invited by the late Assemblyman, Harvey Stower, to the state capitol where they led legislators in a dance in one of the hearing rooms.

“They have been twenty five fabulous years,” says fiddler, Kevin McMullin, “We have so many stories. So many connections with people from so many walks of life. That seems like something worth celebrating.”

McMullin says that Duck for the Oyster Hunt Hill dances attract a diverse group. “We get the widest variety of people at these dances,” says McMullin. “The thing they share in common is having fun. Singles and couples, kids and elders, everyone has a good time. Some folks just to enjoy the live music. There are always refreshments available. It’s a great way to spend an evening.”

The dance is alcohol and tobacco free. Each dance is taught before the music starts; no

previous experience is necessary. Admission is $6/person or $15 per family. HACIL families get in free. For more information about the dance visit or call: 715-635-7641.
