Dear Dancin' Friends,

Not a city person? Singer/guitarist RANDY LITCH plays a variety of music tonight in Kent where parking is free and easy. It's a nice, mixing crowd ... and everyone gets complimentary beverages!

Mark your calendars! My next gig isn't until Saturday, August 31, when TOM RIZA and I put on a dance on the Eastside at the Juanita Community Club. This time Tom will teach pre-dance beginner and intermediate West Coast Swing lessons. I'll play a big variety of Swing, Ballroom, Latin, Nightclub and more for dancing. I really enjoy working with Tom and playing for these dances, but they're only a few times a year ... so don't miss this one!

Now is a great time
to sign up for TANGO FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS which starts Tuesday, September 10, in Greenwood. This 8-week class with ILANA & TONY will give you a firm foundation in Argentine Tango ... one of the most popular local dances!
