There’s Always Something Fun and Exciting Happening in Hot Springs Village!

On Friday, June 3, 2022, Turnstyle performed at the Waypoint Cafe, located on Lake DeSoto in Hot Springs Village. It was a lovely, breezy evening on the Waypoint Deck as the waves lapped against the shore while the patrons enjoyed a hamburger or hot dog, and a delicious beverage while listening to the talents of the Turnstyle Band.

The band consists of Rich Swanson on rhythm guitar, Jay Powell playing Bass, Tom Pautz, as the lead guitarist, and mezzo-soprano, Robbie Deaton, belting out many of the tunes. Deaton is also a skilled alto and soprano.

TurnStyle delighted the audience with a diverse repertoire ranging from “Tennessee Whiskey”, Johnny Cash’s “Fulsom Prison Blues”, Santana’s “Black Magic Woman”, to Rob Orbison’s “Pretty Woman”.

The band previously performed at a Bee Bop Dance, after debuting at the Blue Elephant Grill, located at the Granada Golf Course in Hot Springs Village.

A special performance was enjoyed by all when HSV’s own Ziggy Ziegler and his girlfriend, Dixie Duck delighted us with their expressive dancing.

We hope to see more of this band in future performances. Thank you very much to the band, Waypoint Cafe, and HSVPOA Manager, Ginger Ladehoff, for hosting the event, and of course, we can’t forget Ziggy and Dixie for dazzling us with their dancing talents.
