Plus we will be giving away some Willowbrook Ballroom stuff (the history book of the Willowbrook Ballroom by Bonnie Clausen and the photo book of the Rhythm Rockets last photo shoot at the Willowbrook). Rumor has it...Miss B (Willowbrook Ballroom owner) will be working the door, so please come out and say "Hi" to her.

The bands will be alternating sets on one stage...eat your Wheaties cause it will be non stop dancing, jiving, rocking & rolling!
