Pure Country is back at the AMVETS on 4/20. Last time they were here they kept everyone up on the floor and dancing all night! For the Lessons this week we'll teach a fun line dance that we used to do very single week (by request) and work on building up our repertoire of schottische moves..

This week, the band that the Valley Advocate voted the BEST COUNTRY BAND in 2010 and 2011. make their 1st full night performance at the Chicopee AMVETS.
Yes the Truck Stop Troubadours will be on stage playing the Classic outlaw country sound mixed with hints of Rockabilly and Americana that you love.
So join us for a night of 4/4 foot stompin' two steppin',house rockin',diesel truckin', beer drinkin' music with a definite uptempo beat.... Lessons Start at 6:30 and the Band at 8PM. You'll have a GOOD TIME.
We kicked off the Easter weekend right dancing the night away to the one and only Radio Ranch!
It's always Good Friday when these guys play.
The floor was packed with 40+ Dancers for the lessons and we started out by reviewing Rose Garden and then teaching Runaway to the Gary Allan's remake of the Classic Del Shannon hit by the same name. For the Partner lesson we taught Set me Free which we found goes very nicely to Sugar and Pai by the Boots Band.
It was great to see the couples out in force and filling the floor and also nice to see our new dance friends progressing so well.
Besides getting to celebrate Barb's birthday and dance with the best Party Crowd around, we saw some new faces, made new friends and got a chance to catch up with some old friends and Cheeky Monkeys making for an all around great night.
