We had some good fun with the Swingin Sixties outfits. Can we dress for the next decade which leads into disco? Maybe Elvis Costello’s Allison will be back along with a new Costello tune! What a pleasant surprise when working through the recording.
We are back at the new MoonGoat venue as we near the end of this year. And, I am ready for a new one! We’ll have new music, some extra line dances, and probably even a new Beatles song!
We had a great time traveling back to the sixties. Donny and the Walkers gave us lots of new music and lots of old music. There were sixties outfits with hairdos and go-go boots. Do you remember those days?
Sunny was back and sounding great with a new tune, La Bamba. This was our first time at MoonGoat’s new facility. There was more space and we could stay later. Donny and the Walkers played three sets ending at 11 pm.
The Donny and the Walker veterans were back at Knowlwood Restaurant on Veteran’s Day! We had a fun evening dancing to some great old and new music from the band and guest vocalists. Some new dancers joined us and we ensured they had a good evening! That is what it takes to expand the group and have them invite their friends. All photos of the events are available on the Donny Walker Google Drive
Although it was a wonderful warm evening, the AC was cranking and it was cool inside. Being a lazy summer day in August, the dancers were a little slow getting there but eventually with Donny and the Walkers sounding great, the shop was full and swinging. We took a bit of time to wish happy birthdays to Donny and Ben. With all the dancing, the evening went by too quickly. Ten o’clock rolled in and after tidying up the coffee shop and packing up the band we were asked to leave. Over twenty folks came to mix it up at Norm’s for food, socializing, and Sequence. Beyond the Cinderella hour only serious gamers remained. Join us at Knowlwood Restaurant for the September is for Singles Dance!
We had a delightful first dance at Knowlwood Restaurant. Thanks to everyone that came and supported Knowlwood. We kept the kitchen busy with a sizable line waiting to order for most of the evening.
The sizable menu has breakfast all day, appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, Mexican, seafood, ice cream, and other desert goodies. The old blacksmith shop had a variety of antiques and memorabilia to check out.
The venue had good acoustics for Donny, Sunny, Audrey, Chris, and Peter. The vocalists Nick, Grant, Greg, Judi, Scott, and Lorin enjoyed the sound and a full floor of dancers. The dance floor was large but the band and vocalists kept it filled.
We had a great time again at Knowlwood with Lorin celebrating her birthday! Lorin invited family and friends and got to sing some extra songs because Sunny was attending a friend’s wedding. Our great fans were a bit late in arriving being a Saturday with lots of entertainment options. However, the barn filled up and it was a great evening of song and dance. There were some new vocals with Sunny missing I’ll have them posted soon.
Just in time for the dance, summer finally arrived on Saturday with sunny skies during the day and temps in the upper seventies. It was a wonderful evening for a dance at MoonGoat Coffee with Donny and the Walkers. Great music by the band, plenty of people to dance with, full house but not crowded, social time with the band and friends afterward at Norm’s. Another great evening in Costa Mesa!
