Well, alrighty now! Just what all the dancers have been waitin' all winter for an' esp. now sloggin' thru Mud Season...it's our "2nd Annual Mud Boot Shuffle" with our good friends, Red Hot Juba, and a solid half hour of FREE swing/2-step dance instruction by the great Jean Elizabeth ("J.E.") Shockley of VT Swings. Everyone had a helluva time with this Event last year an' we're really lookin' forward to this repeat. Thanks to The Big Picture (owner Claudia Becker an' Mgr. Asah Rowles)for hosting and promoting and to VT Swings for gettin' behind it, also. THIS IS AN EVENT YOU DON'T WANTA MISS! We're hopin' ta pack the place an' see alotta good dancin'. Great bar an' food, too. We'll be sharin' the stage with Juba, rotatin' sets from 8 - 11, an' J.E. will start the whole thing off with her fine dance instruction at 7:30.
Now...ta give ya some real pro PR for this event, here's what Eric Krull of Juba came up with: "The seasons in Vermont are marked by any number of iconic images: The golden calico hillsides of autumn, the billowing steam of sugar houses in spring, and in recent years the steppin´ and swingin´ of dancers at the Big Picture Theater to two Vermont bands who are no strangers to the purveying of good times. The living honky-tonk encyclopedia that is The Starline Rhythm Boys will again team up with hot, countrified swingsters Red Hot Juba for their annual Mud Boot Shuffle on Saturday April 26th at the Big Picture Theater in Waitsfield. While they cater this event to the dance crowd, Vermont audiences know that both bands can entertain people of all stripes and inclinations. Free dance lessons will be available from Jean Elizabeth Shockley of Vermont Swings starting at 7:30, with live music running from 8-11. Tickets for this long running, popular event will be $15 and are available at the door. Spring is taking its sweet time getting here, come to the Mud Boot Shuffle to keep it on its way!

CINCO de MAYO at MEXICALI GRILL & CANTINA

MEXICALI GRILL & CANTINA
28 Walnut St, #180 (Maple Tree Place), Williston, VT 05495
Price: $ no cover
What is it with us Starline Rhythm Boys and the Mexican-American/Latino celebration, CINCO de MAYO? I mean, we ain't no mariachi, conjunto norteno or grupera band...we're just a bunch of VT hillbillies/rockabillies. Well, we dunno, but we do know that Mexicali Grill & Cantina (located right there in Maple Tree Place) owner, Nick Charboneau is big on us an' has invited us to play this May 5th celebration date every year since he first started hostin' it back in 2011. Of course, this celebration is really a Mexican-American or Tex-Mex thing commemorating freedom & democracy when the Mexicans whipped the French at the Battle of Puebla 5/5/1862 an' it had some relation to the War Between the States that was goin' on. Cinco is mainly celebrated in the SW U.S., but also all over the country, up in Canada an' even down in the Caribbean. Kinda like St. Patty's Day...it's everywhere. But today, it's right at Mexicali Grill & Cantina, a great spot. We'll be playin' under a tent outside the place an' we're on from 6 - 9pm. The whole "Cinco de Mayo" day at Mexicali is actually 11am - 11pm...now that's alotta time for some food an' beer! Anyway, come join us for great drink specials, great tunes an' great times with awesome people. There'll be tons of giveaways an' prizes to be won. Also, visit Mexicali on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MexicaliGrillCantina. Cinco de Mayo at Mexicali Grill & Cantina...Arrribba!!
