A Swinging Time at Cherokee

The Brad Walker Orchestra at Cherokee Country Club

Mom and dad came into town this weekend and we were invited to Cherokee Country Club for dinner and dancing by Brad of the Brad Walker Orchestra. He leads a "big band" and tries to keep the dinner/dance culture alive by encouraging young and old to get out on the dance floor.

The weather was lovely on Friday evening and I think mom and dad really enjoyed listening to live music and the food was delicious as well. Mom and I watched the couples move across the floor elegantly and decided it's never too late to learn how to ballroom, cha-cha and swing dance. I'm going to take lessons this summer! Wonder if that can count toward my PhD degree. Ha! 

We loved having a fun reason to don our heels and dresses

The band's female singer is Valerie Dukes. She is entertaining, beautiful and has a lovely alto voice. If you get a chance to see the band perform, go for it. The group certainly knows how to please a crowd.
