What the Fluff? A Tribute to Union Square Invention 2007
It's the 90th anniversary of Marshmallow Fluff. 1917 was the year when Archibald Query used his genius to mastermind Fluff right here in Somerville's Union Square. We're celebrating the creation of this great American foodstuff with a madcap tribute on September 29. Join artists, musical and theatrical performers, inventors, and humorists to pay yummy homage.
"What the Fluff?" is presented by Union Square Main Streets as part of ArtsUnion, an initiative shepherded by the Somerville Arts Council and funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
The "nostalgically sublime" Adriel Azure and his Dream Indigo Orchestra with swing and jazz from 1900 to 1940, the tunes Archibald once hopped to.
Somerville's own B for Brontosaurus plays rollicking songs for all ages and leads a Fluffernutter sing along.
Thunderpants Johnson's Hillbilly Orchestra, with the best kazoo instrumentalists, will have everyone toe tapping.
The Flufferettes: Durkee-Mower, producer of Fluff, made their product popular through a radio show in the 1930s featuring “The Flufferettes.” The cuties of Thru the Keyhole return as the Flufferettes for the visual age. They'll entertain between band sets in the style of 30s pin-up girls and 60s go-go dancers.
