I am still trying to find a place for our Sunday live music dance. Even for just once a month. It is proving harder that I thought it would be. Of course, it needs a decent dance floor and a willing venue. Some have great floors but not the will to try it. As a band, to a venue, it appears, we are just looking for a gig. Perhaps our Sunday dancers can help, by reaching out to the venues.
The AUBURN EAGLES plan on returning to live music on Sundays when they reopen in their new home. But, we don't know when or where yet. Or if if the Sunday dance will be every week. A new venue may wish to keep a week. At Auburn Eagles plans fell through, they are now hooked up with a commercial real estate group and looking hard.
Stay connected with us and here and on facebook. Auburn Eagles also has a facebook page to help keep up.
A veteran multi instrumentalist,
Chris has the licks to cover many styles of music and plays them all superbly. With smooth vocals and sweet harmonies, brings a wholeness to the band.
You may have already seen him filling in for us. We had sooo many compliments we just had to have him!

Do remember that AUBURN EAGLES and the other Fraternal lodges need to have you sign in if you are not a member. If you frequent these places please consider membership. They all do great charity work, support scholarships and work closely with local causes. They do have limits on signing folks in (by law) and may have to refuse entry after a number of visits. Membership is not usually expensive and your membership helps support them. Participation in things are by choice and will not be forced upon folks. Support them as they book your live dance music, host karaoke, host DJ nites, shows, bingo and put on dinners. You will meet new friends!!
