Bonfire is UUCR's house band! The instrumentation varies but typically includes piano, acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass, drums, often brass and vocals from just about everyone. The band performs at a few UUCR services each year and the occasional special event. Their music includes folk, rock, R&B and other American popular music. Bonfire is coordinated by Gary Kaplan and Kristen Lekstrom and welcomes new members, including youth who demonstrate moderate skill.
