LIL' MO & THE DYNAFLOS

Rockin' '50 - Early '60's style classic and original Doo Wop, Rhythm & Blues

Lil' Mo and the Dynaflos came about one night around 2004 at the World Famous Derby Club in Los Angeles as "Lil' Mo" Morris Everett and Cliff Quan discussed their love for Doo Wop music. Lil' Mo, being a veteran of previous vocal groups and Cliff, being an avid Doo Wop listener and rockabilly guitar player, decided "Why not give it a go ourselves"? The rest is history!

The original group consisted of 5 vocalists and 4 musicians, whom Cliff recruited from the creme of the crop of L.A.'s Rockabilly and '50's Rhythm and Blues scene. Unlike other vocal groups, Cliff's idea was to make the band an integral part of the group (instead of a vocal group with a back up band). This idea was to form the structure and sound of "The Dynaflos". The current line-up consists of 4 vocalists and 4 musicians.

The Dynaflo's set consists of some obscure 50's-60's Doo Wop, some standards and some original tunes. Something for everyone! They blend their style of 50's, 60's, Doo Wop and R&B, with an upbeat, rockin' band. Combine that with a high energy stage show and you'll find one undeniably fun, hard working, Doo Wop group that is hard to ignore.



CHRIS & BETH
OUR GUEST INSTRUCTORS
"THE SWEETHEARTS OF SWING"

Here's their bio:

Chris and Beth both started dancing in the Los Angeles area in 1998 and have been dancing, teaching, and competing together since they met in 2004. They are greatly influenced by the vintage dance styles made popular by the Southern California dancers in the 1930's and 1940's, and had the wonderful privilege of dancing with, and learning from, many of the first-generation dancers who grew up in Los Angeles during those early years. The time they spent with these incredible dancers and the countless hours they dedicated to studying vintage footage gave them a real passion for preserving the spirit and energy of the original dance. Their love for combining modern elements with fast footwork, classic lines and nifty slides keeps them in a state of perpetual rug-cutting bliss. Some of their recent competition wins include the National Jitterbug Championships at Camp Hollywood, the International Balboa Championships at Balboa Rendezvous and the North American Championships in San Francisco.
