Freestyle Invasion Tour brings back club music favorites

If you remember the night the Cover Girls turned the Baja Beach Club into the Funk Boutique, I've got news.

If you raced to the Yucatan Liquor Stand dance floor as soon as Rob Base said, "I wanna rock right now," you need to race March 23 to the University of South Florida Sun Dome.

The Freestyle Invasion Tour will bring back club music faves, like the Cover Girls, Rob Base, Company B, Will To Power and Nice 'n Wild.

Everybody who found fun at Razzles, the Tyrone Square Bennigan's, the Hurricane second floor and the Tobacco Company (to name a few) back in the day can't resist. I'm breaking out the Members Only jacket and splashing on the Grey Flannel. ...

Carson Kressley might not appreciate my Members Only jacket, but the Emmy winner and fashionista promises to offer "insight on how to become a better person from the inside to the out" at the March 11 Meeting Professionals International luncheon at A La Carte Event Pavilion. Go to TampaBayMPI.org. ...

Seen on a bumper sticker: Warning: May Spontaneously Break Into Song. ...

My friends at Brookwood Florida will return to the Gulfport Casino on Friday for another fundraiser. Carnival will be a Mardi Gras-themed party with Cajun food and dancing. Go to brookwoodflorida.org/news ...

The folks at Goodwill should get hip-hopper Macklemore to clean up a few lyrics and use his hit Thrift Shop for promotion. It mentions Goodwill and any song that talks about sporting your grandad's clothes is a winner. ...

In case you can't tell, I love music. Any kind of music.

That's all I'm saying.
