Friday Nights Show 9/25

We had a fantastic night on Friday, September 25, at the Watertown VFW.

With a large crowd of about 75, we had a steady rotation of singers, old and new. There was lots of dancing and fun had by everyone. We celebrated two birthdays as well. Congratulations to Kelly, and Corrina, who both turned 18 last week (LOL). It was nice to see my sister Marie in from New Mexico. She had a great time listening to the music.

The VFW held its food sale from 6 till 7:30, and Patty had a great tip night as bartender. We got a little scared when Kathy led the "choo-choo" line out the front door during "The Locomotion." But they all came back in and twisted down to the next song.

Some of our karaoke highlights included "Abracadabra" by Ginny, "Simple Man" by Doc Pete, "Five Minutes" by Kathy, "Baby Got Back" by Tom, "Alcohol" by Barry, "Crazy" by Terrie H, "Your Cheatin' Heart" by Cecil, "Stand By Me" by Bobbie, "This Magic Moment" by Don, and "Heads Carolina" by Adam. We also heard from Peggy, who dueted with Terrie on "You Ain't Woman Enough To Take My Man," and yours truly on "Toes" and "Simple Simon Says."

We had a blast, and hope to see everyone next time! :)

Friday Nights Show 9/11

Wow... we had a wonderful night on Friday September 11, at the Watertown VFW. There was a crowd of over 125, with lots of singers and dancers throughout the evening.
Ken Bodah celebrated his 65th birthday with a lot of friends and family coming out to party with him. His children and wife brought in decorations and snacks for everyone, and the bar did a lot of sales with all the "partiers." I hope to see a lot of them returning for future shows, as it was a blast.
We had many singers for the night, and ended up staying an extra hour to fill the rotation. Some of the song highlights included Cecilia singing "Foolish Games," Bobbie singing "Stand By Me," Barry singing "Something To Be Proud Of," Doc Pete singing "Love Me If You Can," Erin singing "Say You Love Me," Maggie singing "Cheater, Cheater," Penny singing "I Am Woman," Candy singing "Crazy," and Ginny Singing "Johnny B Goode."
We also heard from Adam, Deryk, Stephanie, Chris, Josh, Donnie, Nicole, Don, Laura, and Peggy. Cecil got a huge round of applause with his rendition of Right Said Freds "I'm To Sexy."
Of course... everyone got up to dance for the Cupid Shuffle, and the Twist Mix. Corrina shook her booty to most every song throught the night.
Thanks to all who came out and had fun with us... we hope to see you next time. :)

Friday Nights Show 9/4

Even with the Labor Day Weekend holiday, we managed to have a pretty nice crowd of about 35 at the Watertown American Legion on Friday night. There were a few new faces and voices, and several returning guests.
We had songs performed by Adam, Don, Laura, Penny, Jim, Marc, Rosemary, JD, Deryk, Terry, Doc Pete, and Milton. Lots of dancers were in attendence, and the crowd all got up for the Twist Mix and the Cupid Shuffle. Jim got the country dancers up with his version of "Am I Losing You."
It was lots of fun, and a great way to start of a long weekend. Hope all who could not attend can make it this coming Friday night at the Watertown VFW.
