Dear Dancin' Friends,

Join me this Saturday for UNPLUGGED! I'll play recordings featuring "real" musical instruments: acoustic guitars, pianos, saxophones, violins, real drums, etc. I have lots of songs lined up already including treasures from The Beatles, The Eagles, Neil Young, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Seger, and The Brothers Four plus suggestions that have been emailed to me by my readers (it's not too late if you still want to suggest). At 7:00 PM I'll teach a beginners' West Coast Swing lesson using songs like Eric Clapton's acoustic version of Layla (www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtxO1gwbHPQ). Then I'll play music for a wide variety of dances from 8 to 11 PM. It will be a special evening!

Scroll down for full details on this and other events plus the new two-week DANCE CALENDAR.

See you Saturday! -- Ron Bolin
