Hey, Hey it's almost Sum-Sum- Summertime and we got some changes & some new things happenin' in June!
First, we decided to take Thursdays off for the Summerso no Thursday dancing in Westfield starting in June and we will also be shutting down Fridays for the Summer as usual after the Annual End of Season Bash at the AMVETS which will be Friday June 24th. New in June will be Radio Ranch Playing for the 1st time at the Granby Legion on Saturday June 11th. Club Manager Ed Houlberg wanted to do something for the Monday night dancers so he booked Radio Ranch on a Saturday night in the upstairs Hall. We'll be there from 6:30 -7:45 Line Dancing before the show. On Saturday June 18th we've been invited back to do a guest teach down at Cadillac Ranch in Southington CT. Our road trip to Caddy keep getting bigger and bigger, we always have 30+ Parrots that head down with us so come along and join the party, it's always a Blast and we get to dance with Paula Michael & all our Caddy Friends.
June 24th is the date of our 7th annual One Eyed Parrot END OF SEASON BASH! Yeah that's right we end the Line Dancing season at the AMVETS with a bang and Potluck Dance Party on the last Friday night of the season officially ushering in the Summer dance schedule. Randy will be DJing all your line and Partner Requests till closing. ALWAY A BLAST. Don't Miss it!

Three years ago, I stated in this
Blog that 2013 would go down as the most successful year in the history of the
One Eyed Parrot Dance Club. I was correct, then… but that statement isn’t true
The reason it is no longer true is
because 2016 is by any measure, is quickly becoming by far, the most successful year in
the 10 ½ year History of the One Eyed Parrot dance club.
We have broken all previous attendance records in every
venue with some events attendance ranging in the Hundreds!
We are teaching in multiple venues & locations throughout
western Massachusetts 5+ days a week.
most importantly, we are growing like MAD! Club Membership remains by
far the single most rewarding club metric. I stated in 2013 that the club had more than doubled in
membership in just a year. Well since that time our membership has doubled
The long time friendships that we
have been fortunate to establish and maintain over the past 10 ½ years and new
friendships that we as a grouphave
cultivated are by far the most satisfying of all achievements.It’s those friendships and the continued,
selfless efforts of all our friends that keep the club, fun, relevant and
I’ve said it oft before, and I need to say it again…
