Rodeo dance more than deceiving. Jazz band for the country rodeo dance... REALLY????

I wanted to thought some line about the rodeo dance of last Saturday. As a lot of people there, we have been extremely desappointed with the band. We were so excited about having a good night dancing and having fun, especially after reading the ad for the dance on the Mother lode Round up website:

" Then, on Saturday night, hats will be ‘bobbin’ and boots-a-stompin’ as the first day of Rodeo is topped off with a Cowboy dance, at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds with country music from California Cowboys. "

What happened?????

The entire night was about Jazz (????) JAZZ???? Really????? Where was the party???? Where were the California Cowboys and the boots-a-stompin'??? Lot of people were more than disappointed and I thinks that the dance floor reflected what people thought, even after several drink the dance floor was as empty as it was before the band started. It even seems that there were more people on the dance floor when the band wasn't playing than when they were.

By the way, how do you country dance on Jazz music????

No really we didn't have fun. Rodeo dance bringing a Jazz band and playing jazz all night, what a shame. Oh sorry... they played 3 country songs by request, that they massacre. I heard a lot of upset cowboys that were wondering why they didn't take down the "welcome rodeo fan banner" down.

Next year we will call and make sure that country music will be played before coming. I wonder how many people will come.

Maybe some explanation should be given and apologizes would be welcome. The California Cowboys were sick or something that would explain the situation.
