No time to waste. We've got some holidays to hype!
First we have Mardi Gras party this Friday. Couldn't be a better line up, even if you were in New Orleans. Otone Brass Band plays at 7p, $8. Otone Brass Band does New Orleans style originals and they are nothing short of fantastic. Then at 9pm we have The Creole Zydeco Farmers, Louisiana's finest Old Skool band. Just check out the photo of these guys on The Colorado Friends Of Cajun/Zydeco website. $15. There will be lots of beads, lots of dancing, lots of spirit.
Saturday morning at 10:30am we have our first ZUMBA class. This is a new kind of work-out that is dance oriented and super fun. Come help us get the Zumba party started. $8.
Saturday at 5pm-7pm we have Kana Ka Pila, a event which features hawaiin musicians in a traditional jam. FREE. Very romantic date material for Valentine's Day BTW.
Saturday night, in case you don't want the date to end early, or prefer it to start late, we have 3 funk/groove bands, Night Groove at 7:30p, Burning Abigail at 9p and Stan Jones Band at 11p. Dance, dance, love. $5.
Sunday we have Aden Harrell trio playing a special Valentine's set for the Baby Boogie. THIS is the way to spend Valentine's day with the family.
Sunday night we have a special addition of Salsa too. Could there be a better way to impress your mamacita on Valentine's day than to give her salsa lessons and then sweep her off her feet to a full salsa band? The answer is the same in spanish as english. No. And for $8 it is affordable.
See, we got you covered for the holidays! Oops, what about President's day? Hmm. Oh, okay, we'll do a special open stage this Monday just for the heck of it. Come dressed as your favorite president and host Jay Ryan will give you presidential treatment.
Oh and next Tuesday is national Animal Day and so we have a fundraiser for Table Mountain Animal Shelter with a band called The Mellow Johnnies. Kidding about the holiday. Not kidding about the fundraiser.
And next Friday is another holiday, the 7th anniversary of the D Note w/ Lion Vibes, Greg Harris Vibe Quintet, Desciples, Dozha, Thrill and Slo Children.
Hope you will help us celebrate...ALL OF IT!
Rainbows and unicorns,
Extra Credit: We often find ourselves trying to remember the following poem by Rumi. We send it out now to all of you, with love.
The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,
they're in each other all along.
