Back for more
If there's one thing we've learned about Piccolo, it's that the festival is happy to offer space for returning favorites
Buckets and Tap Shoes is back after a successful 2006 run.

Not just buckets and tap shoes
Don't get us wrong, that's enough. But the Aulsand brothers (Andy and Rick) throw out a host of other inventive tools, including fans, large sticks, and some beat boxing. And it's not just jazz and street beats. One number meshes the Aulsand's rapid tap dancing tricks with Mozart.

For tiny tappers, too
A five-gallon bucket is considered a drowning hazard for small children, but you turn it upside down and good times can be had by all. Kids will get just as much of a kick out of Buckets and Tap Shoes as their parents. But good luck keeping them in their seats.
