Yippee Aye Oh A Yey!
It's Rusty's Rhythm Roundup

Friday, August 5th

Each year my "Birthday Dance" is themed Vintage Western. This past February we had our favorite Western Swing band - The Lucky Stars. Everyone had such a great time, they begged me to do a "1/2 Birthday" with those Lucky Stars again during the year. Well, according to my calculations, August is my half-birthday!

So it's time to get yourself all duded up in your best vintage Western and come out Friday for The Lucky Stars!!

And our favorite ice-cream man will be on hand, Cowboy "Serve 'Em Up" C.K. Farnsworth with treats for you ranging in price $3-$4.

 


First Friday, August 5
Rusty's Rhythm Roundup
with The Lucky Stars
dress vintage western!

THE VERY PROUD TEACHER AT CAMP HOLLYWOOD!

t
National Jitterbug Competition
"Amateur Jack and Jill" Lindy by the Sea competitors

Lindy by the Sea students and friends were well-represented at the nation's biggest swing dance camp last weekend. And, boy oh boy, did we have a great time. Some of us are still recovering from all those classes, competitions, and dances.

I agree fully with Sheree Taylor's Facebook post from after the Jack and Jill contest:

OW! Just saw Tim Ames, Bill Black, Brian Bucher, Zeeshan Rang, Cori Cooperider, Rachel Hom, Emily Callahan, Lance Morris, Jenny Hsueh David Bowick performing in the Camp Hollywood Dance Contest! Xcellent job well done! And to both their and Rusty Frank's credit..Can you believe that some of these people have been dancing less than one year !!! Amazingly great job done by all of them !!!

 

We all have memories of life-time.
Join us next year. We'll be there!

Yes, this is OUR group!!!

Johnny Crawford Dance Orchestra
At The Cicada Club

If Johnny Crawford Looks Familiar... well...
He is one and the same - The Rifleman's Son...

Johnny Crawford has had a love for vintage dance music his entire life. When I first moved back to Los Angeles in 1992, he had started his dance orchestra, and it was a joy to hear his weekly gigs. Really a highlight of my week!

Now you can hear his Dance Orchestra at the swank Cicada Club. You'll truly feel like you're in an old Art Deco movie!

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.
