IT'S HERE! IT'S TO-NITE! IT'S JUST A FEW HOURS AWAY!

"Carmen's Getit's vocals evoke the styles of Anita O'Day and Dinah Washington with nods to Ruth Brown and Etta James. All Music Guide has included here in their list of the 500 Top Jazz Vocalists of all time."

...And she's going to be at our club tonight along with all the gents of Steve Lucky & The Rhumba Bums.

Cool off tonight, with our air conditioning running full tilt, with this great San Francisco Bay Area band.

I don't know about you, but I can hardly wait!


See you on the dance floor!

SPECIAL ON PRIVATE LESSONS WITH RUSTY

Have you ever wanted to take a private lesson with Rusty? It's one of the best ways to get a dancing "tune-up."

Normally $80/hour (for one or two people), there's now a special package:

          $80 for one lesson

          $75/ea for two lessons

          $70/ea for three lessons

Remember, you can share this lesson with another person. If you signed up for three lessons, they would only be $35 each! What a bargain.

Call me at 310 606 5606 to set yours up!

* Wondering what the heck a "gate"is? This was a phrase popularized by 1940's comedian, Jerry Colonna, who would holler it out every time he was introduced on the Bob Hope radio program. It was a friendly salutation to a swing cat (dancer or swing music enthusiast). Basically, we swing like a gate!
