As an integral part of Daptone Records, Binky played guitar on Amy Winehouse’s record breaking album “Back To Black”, and performed on other award-winning albums with Janet Jackson and more.

A Lindy Memory…

If you haven’t seen this video before, please check it out.  This blog is followed around the world, so please share within your local lindy scene.  This post is in tribute to a dear friend who conceived and co-choreographed/directed this flash mob and introduced me to the Lindy Hop.  If you can, please click through and watch it on YouTube, I’d like to see the view counter rise.  Thanks.
