HARD FRENCH Is Saturday

•April 2, 2012 • Leave a Comment

This weekend I hung out at my grandparent’s house in Morro Bay and her all kinds of fun photos and videos from past Hard French’s. Her comment, aside from ‘look at all of those tattoos’, was ‘Everybody’s dancing, that seems like fun.’ That about sums it up, huh? Her favorite video I showed her was the one of Ms. Juanita More performing Aretha on stage. (We will be spinning at Juanita’s Funky Chicken on April 16th — more details to follow but get your tickets now before they’re gone.) Give the video a look for yourself and get ready for this Saturday!
