Primo players and seasoned professionals that have graced our stages many times now. A clean combo, with Bijoux on bass and Jim on traps setting the foundations. Jerry tickling the ivories of the ballroom grand piano, and Rick on those front-and center vibes. Mike with his dulcet voice and guitar, and Roger letting that clarinet voice soar! Top tier.

Scandinavian or other folk-costumes encouraged. Pot-luck snacks. No partner is required. Children are welcome and encouraged to dance but must be supervised by an adult and are not allowed to play on the very crowded dance floor for everyone's safety.
