HOEDOWN NOVEMBER DANCE

5 in the Wheel Band

Friday, November 15, 2019 - 7:00pm

Palm Ridge Rec Center

Doors open at 6:30pm

JOIN US FOR GOOD A OLE-TIME HOEDOWN! DANCING BOOTS AND WESTERN GIDDY-UP ENCOURANGED - BUT NOT REQUIRED, Y’ALL!!

The name "5 in the Wheel "comes from an old gunslinger term for 5 bullets in a revolver. "5 in the Wheel" has been together since 2014.

Dan and Becky met while playing with a Country Band called Baker Street. Over the period of a couple months, each of the original band members were replaced to form "5 in the Wheel  Band". With Becky being the resident Country music fan and Nick having the Rock and Roll background, the music line up began.

Becky and her husband took country dance lessons and so began searching for songs that were danceable for Country Swing, Texas Two Step, and even some Waltz songs.

Having so many vocalists in the band allows Dan to follow his passion of rich harmonies. Many of the songs selected to play were chosen for the rich harmonies, such as Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Journey, Linda Ronstadt, CSNY, and many more.

"5 in the Wheel Band" plays dance music. They specialize in new Country and Classic Rock, providing a little something for everyone in the crowd. While the band has opened for such acts as the Wall Flowers and has had Frank Zappas’ talented sister Candy, join them on stage performing, their greatest pleasure comes from playing for the dancers.

Featuring - ShaShaty

Thursday - February 13, 2020

3:00pm and 7:00pm

Doors open 1/2 hour prior to performance

The title of ShaShaty’s first album of original material in over ten years says it all about the multi-talented saxophonist and composer’s excitement and optimism as he springboards into the next phase of his dynamic, ever-evolving career.
After fronting an instrumental pop/rock band after high school and expanding his musical scope via jazz studies in a renowned jazz program in college, he got off to a blazing start on the thriving Miami and South Beach club scene. The roar ShaShaty made at clubs like The Clevelander and Tropics attracted the interest of one of the country’s then-top promoters, Cellar Door Concerts – and soon the saxophonist was opening for pop legends like REO Speedwagon, The Bee Gees, Peter Cetera, Gloria Estefan, Jon Secada and George Benson.
Expanding his horizons, ShaShaty has now become one of the creators, producers and the host of “Vineyard Jazz,” a music-centric travel and wine industry show whose 18 episodes are taped at various wineries in Napa and the Central Coast.
