Olympic Peninsula Dance presents the Kitsap band Malo Combo, playing acoustic latin and swing music on Friday, December 13 at the Port Townsend Elks Lodge.
The Malo Combo keeps hips swiveling on the Kitsap peninsula and in the South Puget Sound area with the intimate sounds of acoustic guitar and latin percussion. Friday night, December 13, Malo Castro will bring his congas, timbales and bongos north for a rare visit to Port Townsend adding rhythmic spice to the quintet's passionate music from Cuba and Puerto Rico. Malo's natural feel for rhythm and knowledge of dance translates directly to the dance floor and gets people moving.
There will be a free (with admission) dance lesson by Malo Castro in Salsa, Merengue, and Bachata at 7:00 pm. Experienced dancers are encouraged to come help beginners. No partner or registration is necessary.
This is a smoke-free dance open to all ages.
Admission: Adults $15; disabled or student with school ID $10; age 12 and under $7.
For more information, call (360) 385-5327.
From Tim Shindler,
In December, Red Crow will play, with Michael Karcher calling.
Workshop will start at 7:30, Dance at 8:00
This will be Red Crow's third time on our stage. They like playing for us so much, they keep coming back as fast as we can book them. That's great for us, because they have quickly become one of our favorite bands. (They're the ones that talked us into adding a June dance to our schedule, so they could play again, then drew a great crowd to make it a success!) They are bound to rock the house again Saturday.
Every Friday 7-8pm Lesson, 8-10pm Dance.
Entrance is $7. Food and drink available in the lounge.
Authentic Argentine Tango with traditional tango music and dance format.
Free admission with a special birthday dance to anyone celebrating a birthday in December.

Mark Cole and the Upstage presents Rick Estrin & the Nightcats Saturday, December 7, 8:00pm.
One of the premiere blues bands in the world, they've recently won the Blues Foundation's 2013 BMA Award for 'Best Harmonica Player.' Over the years, they've been a 'regular' at the Upstage on their Northwest tours for one good reason: They're great!...and if you can't dance to their music, there's no hope for you! ...Not to be missed!
