Remember: New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions. - Mark Twain
We know this orchestra... Nine Carat Gold is a subset of the musicians that play at Phoenix Club on a regular basis. Between their wonderful singer and their great music, the evening was a rousing success as evidenced by the floor being occupied the entire evening!
18 and the Band Played On
Great setup in the corner where the sounds filled the room
We dance the night away!
Everything from a waltz to the Hokey-Pokey!
A proper demonstration is provided
The dance floor size was perfect... almost 500 square feet!
The horns were magnificent all night long!
Our vocalist is having a ball!
Bernie and Nita take to the floor
Nita tries to keep up with Bernie
The saxophones just rocked the room!
Keyboard and drums filled out the musical evening
Movin' and Groovin'
Slip Sliding Away...
An oddity these days... Real music!
When the singer has fun... We all have fun!
She secretly conducts the band!
Singing the top hits of years gone by
Much better than a DJ
Proper footwear is essential!
Oops... Where id Lucky go?
The notes float across the floor, into the ears, and directly to the feet!
Country? Yes, we do country!
Put your little foot in... Put your little foot out!
Mike and Vicky steal the show!
Good times are had by all!
A little dance class always is a good idea!
Wow... Real music!
Leon looks skeptical!
Maria doesn't remember the words.... What? It can't be!
Nancy and Vince take to the floor!
Soft music makes for a romantic evening!
Applause.... Cheers to the band!
Good ol' 1950's Rock and Roll
A very handsome couple!
What is he saying?
They are getting dance lessons this year!
Welcome to our world!
Vicky and Del trip the light fantastic
Amazing friends and next door neighbors
The floor was busy all night!
An elegant affair!
The more the people dance... the better the band plays...
We were approaching perfection this evening!
You name it... We will play it!
It's just about midnight!
It's 2018 on the dance floor
"Happy New Year!!!"
The band plays until 1:00 am and we continue to dance!
