CHANGE IS IN THE AIR!  Not only is spring,...Sprunging up, but our friend/co-conspirator Danny is leaving the band.  He lives way, away up north and has the opportunity to do his single act closer to home.
You will still see him as he helps us do dates and look for his replacement.  Also, he will sometimes fill in for someone else needin a certain date off.  May sure you tell him how much you enjoy him.  Wish him well and try to make some of his gigs!

Claim your dates!
 Dates are being added all  the time, so save the schedule page in your favorites!  Book ASAP to guarantee your special date is a lock.  Remember, 8SR is very one of the most versatile country bands in the northwest.  We do old country, mid and new country and oldies rock.  Even a dab of blues.  If you need something special, be sure to let us know.  Certain clubs, parties, etc..,  require different songs.  We play to make sure the event is a  success.

8SR's first Sunday date at Auburn Eagles was:

 Siri tells me 8 Second Ride has been the Dance Sundays house band for 20 YEARS!

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 AUBURN EAGLES They have prerecorded dance music for you.  And they know 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.
