My, my, my!  Just like that the time has flown!!  Been a busy year for us at Dakota Nights...some new equipment...some new venues....& of course,.....some new songs!! Some of the new Classic Country added are  "Home of the Blues" by Johnny Cash..."Stranger", by Johnny Duncan & Janie Fricke, cause we love to duet!!  Also added is  "Country sunshine", by Dottie West, "6 White horses" by Tommy Cash, plus some other great Classics!  One of the fun songs we added to our 50's is "I Can Help" by Billy Swan....I know, it was made popular in the 70's, but it is such fun, & fits perfectly in with our 50's & 60's music!!  We have also been busy with a few gigs, as well as gardening & horse training on my part....& farming for Dennis's part.  We do, however, make the time for our practices...they are very important to us!!  Check out our calendar to see where are playing, or where we have been  & have a listen to our music on our page...it was recorded a few years ago, but  it gives you an idea of our music, although, our sound recordings have improved with knowledge, & experience!!!  :)  Drop me an email if you have any questions about "Dakota Nights".  I would love to visit with you, reader!!  kswvymoo@ndsupernet.com
