Let's check out a new band and venue...well at least they are new for the Denver Funk and Soul group!! (Please read this entire event description for all the important details!)
Bistro Al Vino has been around but if you haven't been there in a while they have expanded to include a lot more seating and a much bigger dance floor... and we will have the entire back, right corner on the dance floor reserved so it should be a great setup! The owner, Al, is also a great guy and promises to make it a fun night for our group, and with the unfortunate closing of Cherry Bar, I am hoping for this to be a new long term venue for us that also brings in all the good Funk bands! So please come out and help us have a good time and generate a great turnout for Bistro Al Vino!
Thumpin' is also a new band for our group but I have heard nothing but great reviews! From the Thumpin' website: "In just over two years, Thumpin’ has become one of the most popular bands on the Denver music scene, drawing enthusiastic crowds and amassing a loyal following who love what this band does: providing its audiences with music that moves the body and soul, music with maximum groove."
As usual, we will start off with Pre-Funk drinks and appetizers at 7:30 for socializing before the music and dancing startup at around 8:30pm.
Please show up as close to 7:30 as possible so we don't have to give up any of our reserved tables! Again, we will have all the seating in the right back corner on the dance floor! Look for cool people with green bead necklaces and Funk and Soul Meetup table signs!
