Come Dance With Me is a unique show where you, the audience, get to share the stage with Don and the talented musicians backing his vocals. With Dave Day on piano, Brian Dorr on bass, George Judy on drums and Bob Gref on sax/clarinet, you’ll be toe tappin’ in no time. Only now you can come on the stage and dance to Waltzes, Rhumbas, Cha-Cha’s, a Fox Trot, Tangos, even a Polka and many more  great  dance  tunes.
