A girl secretly requested the Chicken Dance and got her father on the dance floor to find that neither she or her father knew the Chicken Dance. So I called in the experts Karen and her husband Joe. They handled this potentially emabarassing situation with the utmost professionalism.

So I decide I'll bring my button accordion and surprise the guys in the kitchen with some Norteno music. When I walk in the restaurant Naji comes up to me first thing and says, "Do you know any Norteno music?" This gig has been full of serendipitous coincidences like that.
