Irish music and dancing

My friend Marion from gymnastics at Gold Star (in Mountain View, CA) invited me to her Irish music concert at the Britannia Arms pub in Cupertino last month and I had a blast! Her band is called Banish the Dogs and they play down here and up in San Francisco sometimes. We did several types of dances including many Polka style four person. Marion plays a few instruments but that night she was on the drums, her violinist was amazing and her husband and friends were all great. Apparently they play once or twice a month and the concerts and events are listed at the site and usually the Irish dancing is on Wednesday nights around 7:30.

As for Gold Star Gymnastics, I work there teaching 6 to 8 year old girls and boys but Marion and I also attend the adult sessions on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 8 to 10 and it's a blast! They have a foam pit and two rectangular trampolines. If you've got a child who could benefit from the discipline and balance skills that gymnastics can provide then check out their website at
