LET'S WELCOME A NEW BIG BAND TO RUSTY'S THIS WEDNESDAY
"WEBSTER'S UNABRIDGED"

We have a brand new big band coming to our club this coming Wednesday. And, as a matter of fact, this will be their first performance in front our swing dance community -- so let's give them a rousing welcome!

"Webster's Unabridged" is led by Bill Webster, and they have their rehearsal every Wednesday night not too far from us. A dear friend of mine from ages ago plays the drums in the band, and he stopped in the club one night to see what I've got going on. He mentioned to me about the band... and well, it took off from there.

So won't you join me in really giving them a great first night at our club?!

That's THIS coming Wednesday.

POLKA DOTS AND STRIPES NITE

And just to add a bit more fun to the festivities, we've made it "Polka Dots and Stripes Nite."

LOST YOUR JOB? TOOK A PAY CUT?
DON'T BE A STRANGER!
WE'LL WORK SOMETHING OUT FOR YOU

Every now and again, people just disappear from our scene who have been regular dancers. I wonder why. Did they get married, did they move, or did they suffer some financial hit.

If it's economics, please know that you are always welcome. Don't stay away. We can work something out! Here's some options:

~ I am happy to work out trades... you could sit at the door for a bit at the Rhythm Club in exchange for the dance that night.

~ Find me at the Rhythm Club, and just pay what you can.

~ I'll give you some Rhythm Club passes until this era blows over for you.

~ And the same thing goes for all Lindy By The Sea classes!

I know that dancing really helps in hard times. So don't be a stranger! We'll work it out to meet your needs.
