LAKEPORT – Boogie Shooz, Sacramento’s No. 1-rated dance band, will be entertaining at the Party Hearty on Saturday, Feb. 14.

The event is a fundraiser for local troop support group Operation Tango Mike. Members of the Boogie Shooz band are quite enthused about the opportunity not only to perform in Lake County, but to support the troops.

Dan Langford said, “First off, let me just say that what you are doing for our troops is truly a great service. I wholeheartedly applaud your efforts!”

He added, “I can also speak on behalf of the band in stating that everyone one of us feels that Operation Tango Mike is, most definitely, a worthy cause.”

Tammy, one of the group’s vocalists, said, “I am proud to be involved in helping Operation Tango Mike. Times are hard on everyone these days. However, freedom is not free and the soldiers and their families make many sacrifices for our security, safety and freedom. So, please come out and support this great cause.”

Tony Coppinger, Boogie Shooz drummer, wrote in a message to Operation Tango Mike, “I am not a veteran, but I was an Air Force brat growing up. I remember the National Anthem playing over the loud speakers every day at Noon with an F-4 squadron fly-over. My brother went into Para Rescue in the Air Force and later into the Navy as a SEAL. I have always had great admiration for our armed forces and the great character and bravery of our men and women protecting our country and way of life. When our band Boogie Shooz got the opportunity to be part of this fundraiser supporting our troops, we jumped at it! I think all of us owe a debt of gratitude to the troops (past and present). It is a great honor to be part of such a worthy cause. Our soldiers endure things that many of us can’t imagine. If we can brighten the day of some of our soldiers by sending a bit of American cheer and support while they are putting their lives on the line, it is the least we can do to support such an effort! Our troops deserve full support back home. Thank you Operation Tango Mike for your mission and for allowing us to be part of the effort.”
