We are grateful that so many people came out to the Bellydance Ballyhoo. Lot’s of preparation went into this variety show. Thank you dancers, singers and musicians. And especially Khalima, without whom it would have never happened. We hope to make this a regular event.
To see more videos of the dancers go to the Happy Lucky Facebook page. Click HERE.
The Cacophonous Cabaret is back at Crossroads Southside this Saturday, April 30, from 8 – 10 PM. These bi-weekly events feature the Happy Lucky Combo and guests. Past guests have included Bob Jacobs/accordion and belly dancers from the Roque Bellydance Collective.
It looks like it is going to be clear and warm so the garage door will be open and you can take your beer onto the patio. Some of the beers on tap this week are the “extravagantly hopped” Green Flash IPA, Lagunitas’ “Little Sumthin’ Sumthin’”, Troggs Hopback Amber and a yet to be announced cask conditioned live ale.
Happy Lucky will provide the drinking songs.
Also this week we will perform at the Jackson Davis Elementary School Spring Carnival on Friday from 4:30 – 7:00 pm. This event is free and open to the public. The PTA would love to see you at this fund-raiser. Poster right.
