Mesa Spirit RV Dance – Saturday, Sept 21

Some of you may be put off with dancing to a DJ Saturday night at Mesa Spirit. It is always great to have a live band, but not always possible. Bill Spotts (Wild Bill) is the DJ this Saturday and has some great music planned. 

Bill says ” Here are some of the songs I’ve included in my first set. Could Have Danced All Night and Witchcraft by Sinatra, Just in Time by Tony Bennett, Girl From Ipanema rumba, Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom cha cha, Hernando’s Hideaway tango, Samba Pa, In The Mood by Glenn Miller, Could I Have This Dance by Anne Murray, Blue Danube Waltz, Red Roses Blue Lady by Wayne Newton, The Summer Wind by Barry Manilow, Hoop De Doo and Just Because by Frank Yankovic, Walking my Baby Back Home and L O V E by Nat King Cole, The Night Train for west coast swing, Mack the Knife but not by Bobby Darin, Spanish Eyes by Elvis cha cha, Sway cha cha by Dean Martin, Nobody Till Somebody Loves You by Mills Brothers foxtrot, Sentimental Journey foxtrot, Jump Jiving and Wail by Louie Prima.

Of course I’ll sprinkle in some classic rock and country as well such as Oh Pretty Woman, Sweet Caroline, Margarittaville, Hound Dog, Last Cheater’s Waltz, The Wanderer..

My main goal is to keep the dance floor filled with dancers regardless of whether I play big band, CW or rock.”

Sounds great. I hope to see you there Saturday.
