Radio Active - Dancing with the Ranch

Last Friday 

We were kickin' up our heels till closing,  Dancing with the Ranch! Yes RADIO RANCH was back and the place was packed. We had yet another good group for the lessons and we started off with a review of  "Turbo Twang" and then taught a couple of El Paso variations by request. It was great to see Vance out having fun dancing for a change instead of having to work. It was also great to see Davy out dancing again. 

Regarding the band, Though we missed Big Jim on stage his com-padres held down the fort and did him proud starting out strong, keeping the tempo up and the folks out on the floor and dancing ALL NIGHT LONG. (Not to mention their great rendition of Wagon Wheel.) You know , we're fortunate to have some of the best country talent in Western Mass entertaining us each week. As always, can't say enough about these guys, as singers, musicians and friends.They'll be back on April 5th. Can't Wait!

Escrime Poulet 

This week, our fine feathered friends will be flying south to Chick-Opee to give us  an upbeat Tempo and a steady beat to keep folks up and on the floor till closing. Yes CHICKENWIRE will be back at the AMVETS with the Classic Country and Southern Rock you love. This Friday we'll be teaching a fun new Line Dance to a song that just broke into the Top Fifty Country Charts.
