Dance Birthday Party for Anna Banana at Grand Villa with the new #1 band playing

Newell did a great job as project-manager for Gloria, Lily, and May's birthday blast at Grand Villa recently (see photos.) There were lei's, palm frond skirts, coconut shell bra's autographing, and inflatable palm trees, and a great birthday cake – matched by the warm temperatures in the dance floor. (Which made us wonder if Grand Villa was trying to get us to buy coolers.)

Let's have another party, for Anna Banana, this time! The new #1 band, Groove & Tonic, will make the dancefloor go “ape” in their second set. This is a 7-piece band with excellent trumpet and sax performance, unmatched by any band.

Where did you likely meet Anna? Perhaps at a hundreds meetups, including Marie's karaoke, Libby's dances at Best Western, dance lessons on Granville Street or Robson Square. (see photo)

Rob's review of Groove & Tonic: They play 3 sets, each set catering to a different audience, but all really danceable. With wireless gear, they jump right into the dancefloor and even around the lounge, playing all the while. One or more musician friends opine that Groove & Tonic is better than the famous cover-band, March Hare --- which we also enjoyed at several meetups.

    Hey, would someone please schedule a meetup for Friday and Saturday, the following weekend? [Not same weekend as Libby's Swarm.] The March Hard (cover band) will be at Starlight. Is there anybody who is having a birhday? That is where we should have the next birthday party, imo. Thanks in advance! (The Starlight has the best dance floor.)

    Very sorry to Vi Jang then 10 or more people who couldn't get in, after 9:30pm. Mike the manager gave us the biggest table, and let 30 people in. This event was setup as a 8:30pm start. I was able to get some people, including Nuwell, Gloria, Robin, Rosa, and others texted me, thru a 'secret entrance'.

    Could Michael, Emily, James, and others, please upload your photos? I'd also appreciate your videos. Please email videos, by attachment, to SolarEduFun + yahoo + com. Thanks in advance.

    The wait staff said that this was the best party ever at Grand Villa. Elmo upstaged the live band!

    Special thanks to Eric (saved the day, jumped into the Elmo costume, after Lori was upset by a [drunk?] male touching her); Michie who bought food for everybody and the official party greeter; Kevin for the wine for everybody; Wendy E. the unofficial greeter; Libby for co-hosting; and everybody for being there, for the best ever "big kids birthday party meetup!"

    You do know that Scala has been renovated and renamed Personas, right? It's much smaller, now, with a dance floor a quarter the size it used to be...

    There is a mistake in the starting time - it should state 8:30pm

      Sure! 8:30pm is the perfect time. We can chat a bit with both new and old friends before the music /band starts!
