What a Great Night! Another 40+ dancers on the floor when we began our all request dance session at 6:30 with more and more dancers arriving as the night progressed. If this keeps up we're gonna need a bigger floor!
After Friday night I can say with conviction that a local band with one of the coolest logo's around is also one of the coolest bands! Yes, Chickenwire a local band out of the Greenfield, Massachusetts area made their debut performance at the Chicopee AMVETS and really Rocked the House last Friday. Playing mainly upbeat rhythms, they entertained the crowd with a mix of Country, Rock n Roll, Southern Rock etc that kept people up on the floor and dancing all night. They worked well with the Line dancers playing songs they knew dances to and they also threw in a few Buckle Polishers and Hopping Swing Tunes for the Freestylers and Swing Dancers. Nice Guys, Good Musicians, Great debut performance, Give em a "Like" on Facebook HERE!
Getting good feedback on our new Partner dance HeartStrings from not only our couples but from instructors as far away as the Canada and the UK taking the time to write us mentioning they like the dance and are going to teach it. Cool...
