Sunday, July 23 from 7:00-10:30

That’s right, folks.

After an awesome DJed Waltzing the Blues night in February, we’re bringing it to the next level with live blues music by Amy Kucharik!

Amy has been working overtime to beef up her repertoire of blues music in 3/4 and we need you to come out and show her how much we appreciate it!

RSVP to the Facebook event to let us know you’re coming!

  • Want to waltz? We’ve got you covered.
  • Want to blues? We hope you will!
  • Want to combine the two? We can’t WAIT for it!

Don’t forget to bring your friends! This is a beginner-friendly event with a lesson before the dancing, so “I haven’t waltzed before!” is not a good enough excuse for you to stay home.


Kerrville New Folk winning songwriter and performer Amy Kucharik [/kuh-CHAR-ick/] energizes swing dance, folk festival and listening room audiences alike. Drawing from blues, folk and Vaudeville traditions and with a street-smart stagecraft honed in the subways of Boston, Amy transports her audience to a place both timeless and familiar, but nevertheless innovative.
