Dear Dancin' Friends,

Join me this Saturday, September 22, for the SURF'S UP! NORTHWEST HARVEST DINNER & DANCE at the Ballard Elks. This big annual event is open to everyone 21 and over. Dress like you’re headed to the beach with your surf board! I'll play a wide variety of party tunes and romantic ballads as you dance on the large hardwood dance floor with a view of Shilshole Bay. Dinner tickets could sell out, so I suggest you get them in advance at www.SeattleSinglesYC.com/social-events/northwest-harvest-benefit (be patient ... the page takes a while to load). Even if dinner sells out, dance-only tickets will be available at the door starting at 8 PM. Last year this event raised $34,000 for NW Harvest!

Details on this and other dance opportunities are below along with the full DANCE CALENDAR.

BTW, the following Saturday, September 29, I'm playing for the AUTUMN DANCE WITH TOM RIZA & RON BOLIN at the Juanita Community Club. We had a really fun dance there in June and I'm looking forward to working with Tom again! There are three other special dances that night ... ROCKIN' HORSE DANCE BARN TURNS 20 in Renton, CASANOVA AT THE HAYLOFT in Lynnwood, and DINA BLADE & THE VALSE CAFÉ ORCHESTRA in Bothell ... so you'll just have to decide. You actually can't go wrong with any choice ... unless you decide to stay home :(

See you dancing! -- Ron Bolin, The Dancin' DJ
