First the good news. Reign-N-Country will be sponsoring Friday night dances again this summer at Towerpoint. The dances begin on Friday April 5 and run through Oct 11.
The bad news is that John Klamm is shutting down the dances at Carriage Manor. The last dance will be Sunday, April 14. His email stated in part:
It’s been FUN!! And I truly wish to THANK all the dancers that have supported JOHNE’s CABARET DANCES LLC. throughout the years. We only have a few dances remaining at Carriage Manor, and Jacquie & I will enjoy them for sure.
We will NOT be sponsoring any dances this summer or next winter due to the decreased attendance this past season at Carriage Manor. We wish to thank Carriage Manor for the use of their floor this final season.
I would personally like to thank John and Jacquie for the commitment to these dances. They have meant a lot to us. Without these opportunities we probably would not be dancing today.
Johne has decided to cancel the Friday night dances at Towerpoint. This is effective immediately.
Apparently there was not enough support to continue the effort.
It was great to be back on the dance floor last night, we have really missed it. Our first outing this year and we got to dance to the Sammy Jensen Orchestra at Greenfield Village.
If you get a chance to catch the Sammy Jensen Orchestra it will be well worth your effort. They are very good.
JohnE’s new winter schedule has been posted under Dancing Schedules on the left. The bands have also been posted to the calendar.
For those of us who enjoyed Bob’s great music and JohnE’s a few weeks ago, he is returning to JohnE’s Cabaret at Greenfield Village tomorrow night.
Come out and enjoy a night of great music.
JohnE’s returns to Greenfield Village this week. Come out tomorrow night and enjoy the Desert Drifters.
On Saturday, Rich Howard will be providing music for a great evening of dancing.
Friday and Saturday’s dances at Towerpoint were very successful. The bands were great, Desert Drifters on Friday and Bob Ropollo on Saturday. Plenty of room to dance.
Come join us next week for Debbie and Double Eagles on Friday, and Rich Howard on Saturday.
JohnE’s Cabaret, which is normally held at Greenfield Village RV Resort, will be temporarily moving to TOWERPOINT RV RESORT effective August 19, 2011. JohnE’s will be at Towerpoint the remainder of August and is planning on returning to Greenfield on Friday, Septermber 2nd.

JohnE’s (Greenfield Village) will be closed this weekend for floor refurbishing.
Don’t miss Debbie and Double Eagles on Friday, July 8th, and Danny Kealey on Saturday, July 9th.
Note from Johne:
To all Dancers, Bands and Donators….
We will have a special event this Saturday June 25th at about 8:15pm at Greenfield Village RV Resort to give $4,000 ($2,000 each) to Sunshine Acres Children’s Home and the Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL – no-kill shelter). Rich Howard, along with Brad and John, will play for us. A fantastic trio.
This totals $25,000.00!!! – that all the dancers have donated. WOW!!
One of our dance couples, Eugene & Iona (been married for 58 years), will bake and donate a carrot cake for this special event. Iona is retiring from the baking business and thought this would be a wonderful donation (and by the way… is looking to pass her baking business on to someone else, a great opportunity for anyone looking to get into baking).
Carol Whitworth from Sunshine Acres and Monika Sperke from AAWL will attend to receive the donations. We have so many dancers, band members, and others that have donated to the charities….from $1 to $1,000. Thank you soooooo much!
Our next goal is $30,000. And we are already on our way to reach that goal.
