Hey Kids,

Just wanted to let you all know that we will be at Tio Leos this New Years Eve for all of you dancing enjoyment. Advanced sales tickets are available now at Tio's, or from any band member you happen to run into. Tickets are $25.00 each and include half price appetizers, midnight champagne and all the dancing you can stand. The price will be $35.00 at the door IF the show is not sold out. Tickets are going fast so there is a good chance there won't be any the night of the show. Feel free to email me if you want to purchase a few tickets and we'll figure out a way to get them to ya.

Hope to see ya there,

Mike aka Big Mickey

Tap Legend - Fayard Nicholas in Hospital
Author: Salboa :: Posted: Wed Dec 14, 2005 4:47 pm GMT
Dance friends,

Recently we learned through our friend Rusty Frank that Fayard Nicholas the famous Tap Legend had suffered a stroke. To make matters worse we learned that this man who spent his life entertaining the masses had fallen on hard times financially. With Harold the other famous half of the Nicholas Brothers gone, tap gigs, dance symposiums etc.. were few and far in between for a soloist. To learn more about this tap legend and to find out where to donate please click on the following links:

Any Donations are highly appreciated by the family.

Thanks for your time.

Firehouse back at the Kava Gallery (expired event)
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Wed Dec 14, 2005 1:06 pm GMT
The Firehouse dance will be at the Kava Gallery this Thurs. Dec. 15th. Dance from 9p-12a. Only $5. All ages are welcome.

Discussions and comments can be held/made HERE

Yes, the Firehouse dance will be held one more Thursday at the ever-improving KAVA GALLERY. The Kava Gallery is the dance studio adjacent to the Kava Lounge where we have held the Nathan James concert and my Pajama Party. It has a nice smooth sprung wood floor, a lounge area for hanging out and an adjacent bar for those 21-and-up to purchase adult beverages. Best of all, Jeff will be setting up the Lindy-by-the-Bay sound system just for your dancing pleasure. ALL AGES ARE WELCOME to the dance as the dance will be held in the gallery and NOT in the bar!

To make up for the location inconvenience, the dance will be only $5 FOR EVERYONE!...
