"Due to the overwhelming response from
'Dance for Life 2011,' the organizers and I had decided to do it again in 2012! We held it on Sunday, November 4, 2012 with all your favorite bands returning; and it was indeed a great success. So, now it becomes an annual event - held the first Sunday of each November!"

I'd like to express my appreciation to:

Russ Guyer Band, The Legends, Sundance,
The Toe Tappers, The Memory Brothers,
Redd's Rose Ramblers, Kirk Dighton & Friends
and Wichita.
