The Nelson Brothers Band promise some “good country music for listening and dancing” when they return to the Madison Historical Society Jan. 19 for the society’s monthly dance event.

Co-organizer Viola Neff said there will be plenty of round dances, square dances and country line dances to bring guests out onto the floor, or country music fans can simply sit and enjoy the music. Either way, the event promises to be a fun time for all ages.

“It’s going to be a nice evening out for everybody,” she said. “It’s a great chance to see old friends and make new ones – sometimes, the only time you see some people is at the dance.”

The Nelson Brothers band features siblings Brian and Mark Nelson, who are sometimes joined by their guitarist dad Frank Nelson. They specialize in danceable country favorites from all eras. The Madison Historical Society hosts their dances monthly, normally on the third Saturday of the month, Neff said.

Hot dogs, hamburgers and cheeseburgers will be for sale along with beverages. There will also be raffles available.

The country music dance is a traditional way of enjoying a Saturday night that fits right in with the historical theme of the building.

“It’s nice that people come to socialize and have a fun time,” said co-organizer Susan Anderson. “It is good, old-fashioned fun where you see face-to-face communication and lots of smiles and dancing. You will even find it hard to find anyone checking their phones!”

The country music dance is from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Town of Madison Historical Society, 3606 South St. in Madison. Suggested admission donation is $8, with all proceeds benefiting the Town of Madison Historical Society’s upkeep, Neff said.
