    The music played by the Avant-Gardeners for the couples dancing was so beautiful!!!! Laura Light has such a melodious and sweet voice -- her singing adds so much to the music they played!!! It's always a wonderful time to be able to sit and chat with friends over good food -- and these potlucks offer a good opportunity to spend time with fellow dancers and music lovers!!! Having one of the top contra dance callers, Lisa Greenleaf, in from the East Coast to call is such a great treat for us -- and always great fun!!! The Avant-Gardeners & Friends played such a fun evening of dance tunes. What a great way to celebrate the 4th of July holiday!!!!

    I can't wait for this dance. The Avant Gardeners are dear favorites of mine, with their wonderful original waltzes and fresh inventive harmonies on good old tunes that keep us energized all night long!

    What a great group of people contra dancers are! Every dance is so much fun. Our last dance and pot luck was a great opportunity to meet new friends. The line up of dances, bands, and callers is impressive! The great thing about contra is you don't need to know how to dance! See you ther.
