For the lessons, we started off with the review of Hick Lake Lick. Fun upbeat dance with a great feel (Hick Lake Lick Video Here) and then we taught our new dance, Nathan's Wagon! It's a fun & lively 32 count Partner dance that goes to the song Wagon Wheel by Nathan Carter. We had a lot of really positive feedback on this one. Check out the usual suspects in the NATHAN'S WAGON VIDEO HERE! Also if you never heard of Nathan Carter, here's his Music Video of the song. Addictive to watch.
|Truck Stop Troubadours|
After the lessons the Truck Stop Troubadours took the stage and got the joint hoppin' with that Classic outlaw country sound for a 4/4 foot stompin' two steppin', beer drinkin' good time. Speaking of the Troubadours, Brian and the performed an OUTSTANDING rendition of the Classic Song Wagon Wheel. The tempo was perfect, the vocals top notch and most importantly to structured dancers, they never missed a beat. Straight 32, through and through. Had several people comment on how great it was that the Troubadours we're calling out the dances we do to the songs. They left us with the request to send them songs to learn for us. Great Job Guys!!
BTW, Really glad we did a reteach of the line dance Walk the Line as so many of our bands (The Troubadours are one) play Waylon Jenning's classic "Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line. (Same with Gary Allan's remake of the Del Shannon Classic, Runaway)
This Friday, Just-N-Kase will be back at the AMVETS to help you dance away your Mid Winter Blues and don't forget that Saturday is the HAM & BEAN COUNTRY GATHERING (Dinner and Dancing) at the 2nd Baptist Church in South Hadley and Jenn tells us they're gonna have a great crowd!!
