    Both Martha and Smokey were terrific. They seem ageless as their voices and dance moves were just classic. It was such a fun night to be with fellow music fans that made the long wait worth it. A Big thanks to Anne for saving us some good seats. Also, a warm welcome to new members: Rose, Eileen and Sherene.
