         This is lovely gentle music and it feels so smoooooth to dance to.  The Mavericks have

a distinctive sound — you could never mistake them for anyone else that’s for sure!

They sing such a range of songs and I could listen to them all day—and sometimes do! (-:


This is not a hard dance, so don’t let the step sheet fool you.

Have a go and see what you think.  See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
