WEEKEND: Leap Year Dance Party set for Port Townsend on Saturday

PORT TOWNSEND — Leap year comes only once every four years.

To mark the special occasion, Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is throwing a dance party.

The Leap Year Dance Party, hosted by the Younger Adults Task Force, will be Saturday at the fellowship, 2333 San Juan Ave.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., the swing dance class will begin at 7 p.m. and the dance, with live music provided by The Reincarnations of Rock ‘n’ Roll, will start at 8 p.m.

A $10 donation is suggested. Children younger than 12 will be admitted free.

The Reincarnations of Rock ‘n’ Roll band offers early rock ‘n’ roll, R&B, rockabilly and doowop music.

The group is led by singer-guitarist Raven of Port Townsend, a Buddy Holly tribute artist whose specialty is classic guitar instrumentals.

Elvis Presley tribute artist James Reynolds of Brinnon has teamed up with Raven for more than 10 years, organizers say.

Vienna Barron, Sequim’s own musical queen, pays special tribute to the Queens of Rockabilly: Wanda Jackson, Brenda Lee and Janis Martin.

Supporting the Reincarnations are drummer Peter Ross of Hoquiam and upright bass player Steven Urbanc of Port Townsend.

A raffle and free refreshments are planned. On-site child care will be provided.
