Never understimate the power of a party or the impression it can leave. For Allen Hill, a country dance at the Briar Club years ago left him with an unquenchable passion for music.
“It was the first time I saw a live band. I loved the whole thing – the roomful of smiles, family, friends, the instruments, the decorations, the hay bales, the red bandanas, the barbecue and the energy. Even though this party was over 30 years ago, it is one of my most vivid memories. I remember where I stood, who I danced with – I can even remember the smell. Most of all, I remember the fun”
Great parties can do that to people.
