Colorado’s annual state party is March 19 in the Tuscany Falls Clubhouse Ballroom. Rockin’ the Rockies is the theme that will take you back to the glory days of rock and roll and will include all of the fun of the era.

“We will begin accepting reservations on January 1,” said Cheryl Murphy, the party’s co-chair. “We are really encouraging people to dress in their favorite 50s and 60s style clothing which will add to the festive event atmosphere. There will be a prize for the best dressed.

“Be sure to wear your dancing shoes, the PebbleRock band will be Rockin’ the Rockies! We promise you a good time because even if it is only one song – the lyrics, the melody or the mood – we can take you back to those moments in time like no other party can.”

“Rock and roll doesn’t have an expiration date and we’re going to revive many memories at the 2018 Colorado party,” said Murphy.

Ticket prices are $35 per person and that includes a buffet dinner, trivia contests and dance music featuring our own community’s PebbleRock Band. There will be a cash bar for your favorite beverages.”
