8 SECOND ROCKS!!!   We have a great time playing oldies rock and some blues.  We can help you out in this area also!  

If you know of a venue that needs country music new or old or even oldies rock, let us know & let them know about us bands.  As you may have noticed the club market for live country bands is tight & all the musicians appreciate your support.
And if you want a live band for your birthday party, BBQ, wedding or just for the heck of it, call the bands. Prices vary & live music makes for a great time!

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!!                                
Do good things --join them!!!

 Needa dance fix in the middle of your workweek?  Come down Tuesday nites at the Black Diamond Eagles They have prerecorded dance music for you.  Yes this is DJ Jan from Auburn Eagles doin his thing to keep your dance Tuesday alive.   And he knows the songs to play.  This is being done by your dance buddies, just $small cover helps with expenses.  Dancetime is from   7:30 to 10:30. 

    COME GET YER DANCE ON!!!!!
