THE CLUB HOUSE

A good vibration
An ocean of music
That sets the soul spinning
Waves of people dancing
Gyrating bodies
Silhouetted under psychedelic lights
An atmosphere so free.
Uninhibited -
An aura of harmony
Electrifies the nervous system
Giving the party spirit - Inspiration!
A function that functions
Swinging and swaying
Like a well lubricated machine
Functioning smoothly - without friction.
A journey in a natural world
Where the language is universal
Music - spontaneous and continuous
Its a real happening
The Club House aura.
It's captivating!
