We ended November 2012 by dancing our butts off all night to the uptempo 4/4 foot stompin' two steppin',house rockin',diesel truckin', beer drinkin' music of the Truck Stop Troubadours. Brian and the gang were spot on all night nailing song after song after song. Besides making a point to call out the dances we do to specific songs they worked in some off our favorites like Runaway, Act Naturally and several others and it wasn't lost on us that they added some Travis Tritt into their repertoire. Nice Touch!
You know you're having a good time when they announce the last song and you look at your watch in disbelief wondering where the time went. Great Music, perfect pitch, not too loud, sincere band interaction with the crowd made for great night for everyone. Great Job! The Troubadours will be back at the AMVETS on December 28th to help us dance off some of the extra good food we ate over the holidays.
For the lessons last Friday we taught the easy line dance Givin' it Up to the Song 15 Minutes by Rodney Atkins which we'll be reviewing this coming Friday December 7th along with teaching a new partner dance. Speaking of next week ...it's the first Friday of the month and that means that Radio Ranch will be back at the AMVETS. Radio Ranch always packs the place with their ability to mix it up with a perfect blend of Swings, Cha-Cha's Two-Steps Waltz's etc, etc, etc that will keep you up on the floor and dancing all night long! . Great Band, Great People, Great Friends. Don't miss them, you'll have a great time! Note the warning from their facebook page below....
REMINDER! During this holiday season remember our Veterans. There are currently 300 Veterans (approx. 275 men & 25 women) at the Soldiers Home in Holyoke. We need your help and support to make sure each and every one of them has a Merry Christmas. Bring your gifts (unwrapped) from now until December 14, 2012 and join us and the AMVETS in bringing smiles to OUR Veterans. They will know we haven't forgotten them and them and what they have done for all of us.
