LIMITED EDITION to play on March 14, 2014
The March dance, sponsored by Friends of the Kingsport Senior Center, will feature LIMITED EDITION band on Friday evening, March 14, 2014. Line dancing will begin at 6:30 PM with the band starting at 7:00 PM. Admission is $5.00 per person.
Limited Edition has performed for audiences of all ages for over 30 years. Bruce Rush sings and plays the keyboard while Bink Rush plays guitar and occasional banjo. They are often joined by other vocalists and musicians.
Using the latest digital audio and synthesizer technology, the band plays a large variety of styles to suit very diverse musical tastes. "Something for Everyone". Although the music is especially selected for dancing, Limited Edition recognizes that a dance is primarily a social event. With that in mind, the PA system and amps are set to create a full sound for dancing, while, at the same time, adjusted to a comfortable volume to allow people to hear and carry on a conversation throughout the venue.
Limited Edition believes the most important part of any dance or social event is THE AUDIENCE. It is YOUR PARTY !!
Join your friends at the Renaissance Center in Kingsport on March 14th.
