Rockin' Randall and His Honkabilly Blues Band

I enjoyed Amy's backyard dance party last year, and this party could be even better. The fun starts at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 11, 2012 with the Rockin' Randall and His Honkabilly Blues Band. Bring your shoes for dancing in the grass, and make sure you're in them. BYOB, any snack to share. There will be some provided. All "Leos" are expected to attend! Any musicians who want to jam later bring your stuff. Park in the Walter Fuller Park Pool lot (7883 26 Ave. N.), about a block away. The party is at 8012 26th Ave.N., St.Petersburg, FL. RSVP for count and more info: afriedman8@aol.com.
