Goodbye Winter Dance at MoonGoat Coffee ~ March 11, 2023; 7-9:30 PM

We had another great night of music and fun with the dancers and the band at the Goodbye Winter Dance. Donny and the Walkers were in fine form, at times some people were dancing on the patio, and some by the entry. There were many new faces and everyone was just having a good time together. New music from Donny was I Feel Fine and Sunny sang I Will Survive.

It was a fun evening with the band at MoonGoat. Donny is the master showman and delivered a get performance without Sunny or Greg. All the guest vocalists stepped up, Go Doc!, and did a wonderful job filling in with new music and our favorites. We missed Sunny and Greg but this very weekend, February 11, Sunny and Greg and the full band will be at OC Singles for Christ.

It was a special time for the Donny and the Walkers’ besties. We had Audrey on keyboards and John and Jeff on bass guitar. Judi, Nick, Grant, and Greg sang to an appreciative crowd. With the new players there was only one new tune, but the crowd certainly let the band know how much they enjoyed Ticket To Ride.

MoonGoat Coffee Roasters ~ June 11, 2022; 7-10 pm

It was a fine warm but not hot evening of dancing at MoonGoat Coffee Roasters in Costa Mesa. The evening began with a light crowd that grew throughout the evening. With the doors wide open, we were dancing outside on the back patio and in the entryway inside the front doors. When the band shut down, no one wanted to leave until the staff began ousting us.
