Henry Road Band is back! John Pranio, Jamie Oshima and Glen Loper will gift us their varied, excellent, and interesting tunes. Fun trivia fact: The original Henry Road Band was born out of Beatles-focused jam sessions at the Pranio-Oshima household.

Dugan Murphy will be your caller for the evening, bringing his smooth voice and impeccable teaching. He'll teach half the night and Krysten Raymond, an emerging caller from here in Maine, will teach the other half.



Join us from 10 p.m. 'til close for snacks and drinks just down the street at Local 188 (just West of Longfellow Square). They've created a new tapas menu just for us, and will offer PICD dancers a discount on drinks and grub. Sweet, ain't they? All ages welcome!
