Due to the untimely passing of proprietor Gaye Anderson  last August we have no future bookings scheduled in that legendary venue. We wish them the best of luck as they continue operations in her absense and sincerely hope it will be possible for us to appear there in the future. It has long been our favorite public venue. We urge you to support their efforts in any way you can.

This year the annual holiday dance that we play for Northwest Dance Network is being held at Sonny Newman's Dance Hall in Greenwood on Saturday night, Feb 2, 2013. The music is by John Holte's Radio Rhythm Orchestra directed by Pete Leinonen.

Always a Stunning Success, this dance held by Northwest Dance Network  is preceeded by a dance class beginning at 7:30 PM and both are included in the price. The classes are great fun and so is The Band. which

plays from 8:30 to 11:30. Sonny Newman's Dance Hall is upstairs at 201 N. 85th street, just west of Greenwood  on the south side of the street. It's a romantic room with a real sprung wood dance floor. You'll love it.


The entire night will be a dancer's dream!
