Harry Turner...music promoter, manager, DJ, historian and author, had a large time at his 70th birthday in Cagney's Dancin Room. Family and Friends came miles to honor Harry. The speeches and hugging wouldabrought a tear to a glass eye.
Clay Brown and Billy Scott knocked us out with several beach classics. Billy Scott and Rose Rock showed some serious boogie moves. And so did all of Harry's family.
Cagney's lost a loyal friend this week, Roy Mitchell, jr of Durham. He and his sweet gentle wife Millie, probably dined with us 3 or 4 hundred times over the years. Always quick with a smile, a witty comment, a hearty laugh, and an UNC coaching suggestion, good folks like Roy and Millie made owning a restaurant joyful. Roy had an outstanding professionalcareer, but what we remember best is how he treated others. Our warmest thoughts go out to Millie and the children. Thanks for the memories Roy. Dino, Dino, Danny, Michelle and all the Cagney's staff.file:///Users/dinothompson/Pictures/iPhoto%20Library/Originals/2009/Jan%201,%202009/IMG_0025.JPG
