    So we have two great dance bands Battle for your Heart with an epic Battle of the Bands:
    Lil’ Mo & the Dynaflos versus the Moontones​!

    This is a Valentine Party like no other:
    When these two groups get together, the hardwood floor is smoking hot.

    They will mix it up with several combinations of players to give you the most unique and compelling Valentine show ever!
    First, Abby Girl will deliver Valentine love ballads at 8 pm.

    PLUS- the chefs at Original Mike’s have created some fresh entrees that will help make this one of the most romantic and remarkable Valentine Parties of your life.
