From Carole O:

 

Hey, all you dance enthusiasts:
We're going to have a fantastic time, once again, at December Nights. If you are coming out to enjoy the music, please consider spending an hour or two in our club's booth or working your way among the crowds that gather to pass the word about our Second Saturday dances and Gator By the Bay.

We could use more friendly folks at most shifts, but especially 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 2 and 8-10 on Saturday night. It's easy, not hardly work, and you'll be helping to support the ongoing success of both the club and Gator. Thanks for helping to make this happen!

Sign up? Questions? Concerns? Input? Contact Carole O at
carole.os@gmail.com
858.735.6314 (most direct contact on Friday and Saturday)

Or just show up at the booth to help those who have already committed to a specific time.

The stage is located next to the Panama 66 Restaurant between the Sculpture Garden and the San Diego Museum of Art. Go to the end of Laurel St bridge in the center of the park, Plaza de Panama. For those who have participated before, we have moved from the NE corner of the Plaza de Panama to the NW corner. 

 

2016 transportation and parking info for the event found here.

From Dana D

Hi Folks..Just wanted to thank all those who came out last week to hear Andre Thierry play last week..Man, was he good as usual..Andre plays stuff nobody does anymore or does at all..He went from playing some Cajun tunes to Clifton Chenier by way of Boozoo, Beau, and John, and with his own compositions thrown in, it was a great night of Zydeco music..For those of you who missed it, it was a great night..Plus, it was Pat's B-Day, and we did a nice birthday circle for her..So thanks Pat, and all the others who came..it was a nice crowd, w/many new people who really dug the music..and hopefully many of them will come back and become regulars..We'll see..Andre will be back sometime in Jan..

 

Speaking of bands coming back,Motordude Zydeco will be back this Friday Dec.9..many people like this band as well as they should..They play hard-driving old school Zydeco tunes, and do it well.Doors 8, lessons 8;30, music is at 9..We hope to see you there..so spread the word..

 

We will have the Zydeco One-Nighters on our Sunday Dance that will be on Sunday Dec. 18, at 5:30.which will be also a potluck..many people love the Sundays as well as the Fridays so help spread the word on that if you can..thanks..

Also wanted again to say to people who say we should have more Cajun style stuff, well, on Dec. 30th, the last dance of the year, we are having Andrew Carrier, Billy  and Annie Staniac play..SO please spread the word, help get people to show up and enjoy the show..I've heard this a lot from many many people about not having enough Cajun stuff, so here's your shot..to have the style you want, and hope you can make it and tell people and bring some friends..Annie is not here very often to play as she plays w/Rod Stewart of all people. so help out..and get the word out..it's also going to be Clark Petersons B-day party a few days early but so be it..Andrew is one of his favorite bands and Clark, while balding, is still a cool guy who supports what we do a lot..so there you go..Dec.30th..we'll see you there and before as well..

 

And also again, Lisa and I have had some requests to do more lessons, but right now It's not in the cards for lots of reasons..We might after the first of the year..you never know..

.Wanted to say the Raiders fans who I offered to bet should have taken me up on it..Thought my Bills were going to do it, but Raiders look good this year..we'll see how it turns out..My Niners are horrible..just like the Raiders have been for 14 years now..See you Friday..
