Yee-haw--
  Got a special event? 
We are filling up the calendar! First come first booked! Happy to say, filling' up fast.  
  Yes, we do -do private parties. Now booking !!

​,
This week in 8SR land:
This week:  Friday we will be back at STOCKTONS in Maple Valley.  Just off the freeway. Easy access. No cover. Great food. Stiff drinks and 8SR!  What’s not to like.  Start time 8p
Saturday we will be out at ROY EVENT CENTER/ GENERALSTORE STEAKHOUSE (OGS).  Great food here too!
$10 cover pays the band.  Please note that the start time is now 7 here!!!!!

AND GREAT NEWs…. We had such a great time up at BLACK DIAMOND EAGLES (officially Green River Eagles), that they are going to take a crack at bringing back the Dance Sundays program!  Only once a month, with 
8 SECOND RIDE as the band.  Next one is set for February 19th.  Now confirmed!!!!!  Time will be the same as before 5-9.  AND JR will be our — not so secret,  dance party buddy most sundays!!!! $5 cover
VERY IMPORTANT….So if you wish to continue it, we will need your support to show up.  Right now there is no cover planned, but that also needs you all to make purchase from the club. There are no free rides, as the club will be paying the band and providing the venue.  This is a event that I know 8SR is looking forward to and I know many would like to see succeed.  We had such a great time at Scotts surprise bd party.  It was heartwarming seeing you all.

Put us in your favorites and pull us right up.  We are adding dates all the time and the calendar is constantly evolving.  Book a bbq with us!  ps. you cook!  

8 SECOND ROCKS!!!  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 EAGLES, ELKS 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 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!!!!!
