Sometimes it's hard to get folks to go out in January (arguably the coldest month of the year), but you wouldn't have believed it Last Friday. Folks came out to the Chicopee AMVETs in force and we had 50+ people packing the floor for the line/ Partner dance lessons with a combination of long time dancers and brand new beginners. That's what I'm talking about! Just-N-Kase kept up the momentum hitting the stage with a uptempo combination of Country, Rock & Roll and oldies that fired the place up! They even got up with us to line dance. (Great Job BTW) Gotta love that. Good Musicians, Great People and another great night our dancing with all our friends.
For the lessons, we reviewed Nathan's Wagon a fun & lively 32 count Partner dance that goes to the song Wagon Wheel by Nathan Carter. For the new dance we taught Walking away that also goes to the 1st song we play on Fridays "Is it Friday Yet" by Gord Bamford.
Saturday had the OEP's out en masse for the HAM & BEAN COUNTRY GATHERING (Dinner and Dancing) at the 2nd Baptist Church in South Hadley!
What a nice night! The hall was packed, and Jenn, Kathleen, Darlene and company did a great job getting everyone if fed and up dancing! We got to teach 4 beginner lines and a Partner dance in between demo'ing for the crowd. But most of all, made some great new friends! Check out the Photo Montage HERE!!
This coming Friday, CHICKENWIRE will be back in the saddle at the Chicopee AMVETS! Yes indeed, our feathered friends are flying south to close out January at our local Honky Tonk! A great addition to the 2013 band Line Up, you'll be dancing to these guys every month!. If you've never seen/heard them, you are ABSOLUTELY missing out.
