Rock the nights away this month
The Velvetones Ballroom Dance Orchestra will be back in action on Sunday, April 3, from 6-9 p.m. in Clubhouse 4. Leisure World’s own professional big band plays swing and jazz standards, music perfect for dreaming and dancing. Though the band usually plays on the first and third Sundays of the month, it will not perform on April 17 because of the Easter holiday.
Vinyl Rock will return to Clubhouse 4 on April 9 at 7 p.m. Sponsored by Cabaret Entertainers, the nine-piece Orange County-based band passionately perform classic rock, Motown and pop tunes from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. Everyone will be smiling, swinging and swaying, as they sing along to songs they grew up listening to. Doors open at 6:30.
On April 23, Clubhouse 2 will be rocking thanks to Abilene, LW’s No. 1 country rock band for nearly 20 years. Terry Otte leads Abilene and shares singing duties with Tina Schaffer, while guitarist Rod Anderson, guitar synthesizer player Jim Long, bassist Mike Simpson and drummer Jim Greer round out the group. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for this 7 p.m. show.
Guests must be accompanied by the resident who invited them. Masks are no longer required regardless of vaccination status but are strongly recommended. Table saving is not allowed. People may bring their own snacks. The GRF asks everyone to sign in, either as a resident or guest, to help determine the popularity of the bands.
