Kool Kase & Jolly Ranchers

Last Friday

WAS the last Friday in February and a great time at the Chicopee AMVETS! Just N Kase was back laying down some great tunes for us to dance to with a mix of Country, Oldies and Rock and Roll!

Here's a Note from JUST N KASE about last Friday : "Thank you AMVET patrons - The One Eyed Parrots were there and with their splendid dancing made it enjoyable to play - all the new people who came and all the regulars - thank you so much - we felt welcome and loved watching you guys dance. It makes it seem so worthwhile all the hours we practice as we look for new songs, download them, get the words, learn them and then you guys dance to them. Nice!!!"

As I say every time they play, Terrific musicians and great people. We had a full floor for the lesson and started out by reviewing the new Dance “Is it Friday Yet” and then teaching an old favorite  "Turbo Twang" by request.

The bonus of the night was having Marybeth with us!! It was great to have her back out on aFriday. Jennifer, Val  and many others (Forgive me as I don't know who did what) orchestrated a wonderful welcome back party and goodies were plentiful!! Check out the Pics

It was nice to see all our new friends out with us again as well, Shirley, Lana (pronounced Lawn-uh) Denise etc etc and dance with all longtime friends and usual suspects. ;)

This Week

They're back.....  RADIO RANCH is back on stage with the energy and talent that only they bring. Yes the Celebrated Triple Jays, A&M (JJJAM) will be banging out those hot country rhythm's that you love, keeping us up and dancing till the cows come home.
