Last weekend, our little town held a Spring Street Dance to benefit a local hospice house. This was not a typical street dance where there is breakdancing, hip hop, locking, etc. This event was held to raise funds and to give folks a chance to dance and have fun, featuring local bands in a nice outdoor setting. Featured were three bands: Hank & the Hustlers (country music), The Frank Hill Band (country/pop) and our son's Funk Uncle Band (funky) lol.
The 3 bands who each had their own stage, opened with country music, then went to pop and closed with funky music by Funk Uncle. It was funny because when the country/pop bands were playing it was interesting to watch older people swing dancing to the music. When Funk Uncle played, younger people flocked in front of their stage and started dancing! And boy, the girls were really rockin'! ha! ha! It was wonderfully fun and entertaining! The CD's that the Funk Uncle brought to the dance were sold out and some of the girls even asked for autographs! cool huh? ;) For those of you who are new to my blog, Funk Uncle is comprised of 16 to 17 year old boys, where our son is the lead guitarist. And for my regular and loyal friends/readers, I hope you don't get tired watching Funk Uncle! ;)
Being a proud parent that I am, ha, ha, below is a video that I took ... our son is the one wearing sunglasses. The boys were really busy that day because they had a marching band competition at a neighboring town then hurried up to set up their stage. They did not have time (except our son) to dress up a little. (I uploaded this video to my son's facebook ... so you should see more on youtube if you so desire)
Here's a picture of the first band. I didn't take a picture of the other one.
From the looks, seems like everybody enjoyed the free live entertainment; a good way to end the week, don't you agree?
