I've always thought tap dancing was pretty neat. It's fun to watch especially if it's a group that's completely in sync with eachother.

Kind of makes one wonder what ever happened to real entertainment, huh?

Those guys sure could move! Not many people can do that anymore.

Bethany said...

Those guys probably are dead. Of course they can't do that anymore! Siily Jim.

I remember Cab Calloway from the movie The Blues Brothers. He sang the same way! That was about 40 years later! Have you ever seen it?

I didn't see all of The Blues Brothers, but I do remember the car chase scene. (It's one of my favorites.) Cab Calloway also sang with the Count on Sesame Street ("I wanna count, just count, get ready to swing...") Another anecdote, Cab Calloway was born in Rochester, NY in 1907.
