It all began for us, as a group of friends who had two things in common, which was that we loved country music, and also line and partner dancing…
We started at the Golden Palomino CWD Club, but unfortunately our social evenings came to an abrupt halt due to the closure of that Club. This was due to the bad health of our teachers Mark & Pearl, who were well known within the Country and Western dance scene.
The duo who call themselves Stonecold Country, perform country music from old to brand new. They play old favourites and line dance songs (along with dance suggestions), in fact all styles that dancers and listeners alike can enjoy.
They are a Father and Son act who have been on the country/line dance circuit for several years,. Ray Kedge has been in bands since the 70’s, and his Son Steve has been playing since he was about 14, having been involved in many different bands
They are set to make a lasting impression, with great vocals and outstanding lead guitar and pedal steel. They are true musicians with a rocking sound, and they play different material not overplayed by everyone else. Those of you lucky enough to hear them at Braeside, had a real treat, as this couple really know how to put on a performance.
Rita performed her magic again, and created these wonderful table decorations; this being our nearest Social to Valentine’s Day.
Yet again Doreen and Paul pulled another wonderful raffle out of the bag. They have also prepared a wonderful hamper for our Easter Social next month. this was on show this time to whet appetites in advance.
These green bags get everywhere – this one is ful off groceries.
Thanks to Sue, we now have a “Charities” book, which is left on the table in the entrance lobby, and in this you can see what we’ve donated to various charities, and the letters we’ve received from grateful participants
REQUEST SHEETS We are very keen that those who attend fill in request sheets, so that we know we are going in the right direction – hopefully you saw the list of dances on your table as a reminder. If Alan doesn’t have the music on the night, he will make sure he has it by the next Social, and if there is something you later think of, please don’t be afraid to let us know – there are contact details on the “Contact location and links” page.
